Angel Chan’s upcoming exhibition at AFA is part of the “Femininity in Art” – Women Artists Exhibition Series. She graduated from the Macao Polytechnic Institute with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, majoring in ceramics, and later graduated from the Taipei University of Education with a Master’s degree in Art and Plastic Design.
Chan has been a fan of high heels since the early days of her career, later on, she abandoned the appearance of high heels and transformed them into symbols, using plaster molds to re-mold the shapes of high heels, the same shape of heels being arranged in different ways to form what appears to be an autonomous form.
Through her study of art and modeling, Chan internalized the contradictory entities that created them as part of her artistic work and part of herself. This process demonstrates the transformation of Angel Chan in her own artistic journey.

“Symbiosis: Imagery and Aptitude” is a collective exhibition presenting the works of 21 artists and institutes around the Pearl River Delta area. It explores the talents’ take on contemporary art and history. If history is only a mere occurrence, there will only be surprises but not any regrets. When historians tried to find out the reasons for the decline of painting exports, they all attributed the cause to the introduction of photography and printing techniques during the period of Emperors Daoguang and Xianfeng, which replaced the handicrafts with painters. Thus, it is invincible for the fall of painting exports. History will not repeat itself but only the pattern.
Compared with the impact on the painting export industry in Guangzhou caused by the photography and printing techniques in the 19th century, we are now in the digital media era, surrounded by countless images that could be generated and transmitted in an unprecedented array of methods. The traditional painting technique in the west has shown signs of waning in this new image era, similar to the decline of the painting export industry in the past. If technology only affected the painters and the industry that reproduced works three centuries ago, what technology will sweep across nowadays is all the art forms of painting.
When: November 6–December 19, 2021
Where: Ox Warehouse, 15 Rua do Volong, GF, 1F & 2F Gallery, Macau
How much: Free admission
