In first glance, Leong Fei In’s works appear all net and organized, however to attentive eyes, her creations become discernible– the drops, the fold of the paper and the cuts together constitute an organic texture. Fei In removes all visual and textual contents from newspapers and makes paper balls from the cutouts of the original newspapers. By doing so, she has turned newspaper, the two-dimensional form of media, into a new “language” to communicate with the audience.
When: 11:00am—7:00pm, April 20—May 13, (closed on Mondays)
Where: AFA Macau, 1st Floor, Tak Chun Macau Art Garden, Avenida Dr. Rodrigo Rodrigues N. 265, Macau
