The Rui Cunha Foundation presents The Melting Frozen Soil exhibition, bringing together the works of two local plastic artists, Minnian Ng Ka Ian and CC Wong Nga Peng, to the walls of FRC Gallery. Developed by the Borderless Arts Association, the exhibition showcases 30 art pieces, created from mixed materials, such as acrylic paint, varnish, crystal glue, canvas, wool, embroidery thread, silk and cotton, leaves, petals, tree bark and other natural elements. According to the artists, «we wanted to convey in our pieces the sensation of movement, with stunning colors and the use of natural and artificial materials».
The theme underlying the project is the global concern for planet Earth. “The Arctic plays an important role in climate change. Since it is warming more than two times faster than the rest of the world its changes are affecting the global climate and ocean systems. Melting ice shelves are disturbing ecosystems, releasing greenhouse gases such as methane and carbon dioxide stored in permafrost, and exacerbating the ‘out of control’ climate change», declares the artists’ manifest of intentions. Minnian Ng and CC Wong hope to bring different visual experiences to the public through their works, using a variety of media and interactive AR technology (Augmented Reality).
When: September 21–October 5, 2021
