  • 202200080026 Sogetsu Ikebana Performance by Hedy Leung - ZURICH

    '202200080026' Sogetsu Ikebana Performance by Hedy Leung, as part of the 'Random Diaries' exhibition and Art Basel VIP Programme Saturday, June 10, 2023: 6 - 9:30 pm Performance: 7-7:30 pm Location: St. Jakobstrasse 41, 8004 Zurich RSVP to Celine Ngai, +41 76 696 40 66, Taking inspiration from other works in this exhibition and primarily based on her recent migration journey from Hong Kong to London, Hedy Leung has created a group of vessels entitled '202200080026' (2023) (d), which embody diasporic sentiments. Adapted from the title format used in both her visual ikebana diary and personal journal, the artwork is aptly named as a record of her move from her homeland to a new destination. The hand-built vessels are constructed - and protected - using packing materials including the sheer papers Hedy received from a logistics company as the first layer, while newsprint wrapping papers form the second layer. The final layer is strengthened with newspapers collected from an ikebana shop where she ordered materials from Japan. The artist then dyed the newspapers in the iconic colours of the Red-White-Blue bag to further imbue the artwork with the spirit of the journey. The packing materials are transformed into vessels of memories documenting her personal and emotional journeys. In the Sogetsu Ikebana performance as part of the exhibition, Hedy interacts with the vessels and invites the audience to reflect on the essence of ikebana, which is to live in the moment. The vessels also serve as a reminder to cherish and appreciate the precious items and memories that we carry with us. Each layer of protection used in the construction of the vessels represents the care and importance given to those items that are most precious. Excerpted from the curatorial essay 'Random Diaries 2019-2023' About the exhibiton Meow Kong and PF25 cultural projects are delighted to present 'Random Diaries,' the first chapter of the 'Homeland in Transit' exhibition series to be showcased in Zurich. Opening from May 13 to June 18, 2023, this chapter presents recent works created from 2019 to the present by eight Hong Kong and Swiss artists: Tashi Brauen, Oscar Chan Yik Long, Leung Chi Wo, Hedy Leung, Lo Lai Lai Natalie, Andreas Marti, Angela Su & Wai Pong Yu, curated by Angelika Li. Interweaving a diverse range of mediums, the exhibition unveils the artists' kaleidoscope of memories, emotions, and consciousness, reflecting their observations of the constantly changing environment through their 'mind's eye.' Amid the current global instability, this chapter of the 'Homeland in Transit' exhibition series conveys fluidity, transience, and resilience that are integral to its narratives, evoking a sense of chance and risk-taking. It leaves us wondering: where will these transformations lead us?

  • We stay up late to behold the beauty of the stars. A solo exhibition by Bouie Choi

    PF25 cultural projects Residency, Community Projects & Exhibitions May - June in Basel Introducing our resident artist in May & June Bouie Choi (b. 1987, Hong Kong, lives & works in Hong Kong) Bouie Choi grew up in Hong Kong, surrounded by high-rise buildings that shape the city's urban landscape. Through her paintings, she weaves together fragments of memory and collected stories to depict the co-existence of the visible and invisible, light and darkness, and the real and surreal. Bouie uses the force of urban imagery and light to create a manifestation of infinite borrowed space and time, bridging the gap between tangibles and intangibles. Recently, she has focused on using wood to explore the definition of freedom, employing multi-perspective and layers of time to deepen her state of mind. ​ After receiving her MA at Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2012, Choi started participating in community art and cross-media collaborations. Her unwavering commitment to painting is driven by a profound curiosity about how the environment and social values leave lasting impressions on individuals. Her works play with absurdity from different contexts, finding them carriers and bringing new meanings to texts, objects, and two-dimensional art. Choi also participates in community art programs and has formed an art collective with other Hong Kong artists named the "CHT. Art Project". ​ During Bouie's residency in Basel, we invite you to bring a postcard of your homeland to the community event on 31 May, where you can share your stories with us. This exchange will serve as part of the inspiration for Bouie's upcoming exhibition, entitled 'We stay up late to behold the beauty of the stars,' which opens in Basel on 13 June. Her exhibition seeks to capture the emotional resonance and complexity between the interior and exterior worlds, the physical and metaphysical, and the multi-perspectives of far and close oscillating between different times and dimensions. ​ Click here for the PF25 May & June Programme.

Every moment counts, not one moment repeats itself. Ikebana is an encounter between humans and plants. Flowers and stems are given a new life when they are arranged in a vessel or a space. Ikebana allows flowers and vessels, which exist on their own, to become one. A different harmonious beauty is created. Ikebana is a tactile art. Enjoying visual movement through our hands, it allows us unique opportunities to experience the flower, the vessel and space. In the practice of Ikebana, we will explore the flower’s rhythm flows in our imaginations and the inspiring energy between the organic vessels and the plant arrangements.
