Staying in Germany for creation, artist Ng Man Wai will return to Macau and hold her solo exhibition “Packing the Nature – Works by Ng Man Wai” in AFA Macau at 6:30pm on March 10 (Friday).This time a big installation will be set in the hall, the artist will use plastic bags as media, and fill them with light bulbs for decorating the whole space, to express the relationship between human and the nature.
Plastic bags are industrial products, the use of artificial colors shows a tendency of anti-nature, which is opposite to the natural colors. For the artist’s creation, she uses multi-colors as a simile to show the colors are like the constructions that built by humans for their better lives. However, those constructions must harm and change the environment.
Through Ng’s work in this exhibition, she showed what she saw and felt in the forest, such as her lament to the extinction of the nature, the observations about the manmade has replaced the nature and the wishes of packing good things. So the exhibition title is called “Packing the Nature”.
