Hong Kong Arts Centre and DFS
This Lunar New Year, Hong Kong Arts Centre and DFS invites you to “Liberate Your Inner Dragon”, where we encourage you to embark on a journey of exploration, self-discovery and transformation.
The Hong Kong Arts Centre and DFS will jointly exhibit unique red paper cuttings in 13 DFS stores around the world. Inspired by DFS' campaign theme "Liberate Your Inner Dragon", a total of 10 red paper cutting designs were handcrafted by three artists from the Hong Kong Arts Centre. These artists include Meko Cheng, Chung Siu Fung, and Wong Wan Ying, Phoebe.
The Hong Kong Arts Centre has played a pivotal role in fostering local artists' growth through various art events and educational initiatives. By actively engaging with the public and integrating art into society, we have sought to make art accessible and relatable to a broader audience. In parallel, as a global travel retailer, DFS is devoted to preserving local culture and the arts. Through DFS’ dedicated efforts, they have provided invaluable support to the development of local artists, recognising the importance of nurturing artistic talent within the community.
This collaborative endeavor focuses explicitly on preserving and revitalising the art of paper cutting, an item of significance within intangible cultural heritage. Beyond the mere preservation of this cultural tradition, the collaboration aims to redefine traditional craftsmanship by infusing it with contemporary relevance and integrating it into daily life.
In addition, this collaboration exemplifies a shared vision to preserve cultural heritage, support local artists, and engage the public in meaningful and transformative art experiences. By intertwining tradition and innovation, we strive to create a dynamic cultural landscape that celebrates and nurtures artistic excellence while enriching the lives of individuals within the community.
