Kelly Fung- currently nowhere (now here)
currently nowhere (now here) is an installation contains objects I created from found/broken objects and mixed materials. This work is inspired by memories from the old house of my childhood and my current surrounding.
I’ve been away from my original home since I was very young, and have lived in different cities/countries. I have a detachment of the idea of home, but I have strong memories and images about my childhood and old house. This group of work contains 8 objects, each has a title as a hint of the story behind, as well as a link for viewers to connect. The use of humor in contrast with melancholy is important within my work, so through my exploration of the subject matter, I’m aiming to create work that provokes thought and maybe solicits a smile. Ultimately I’m striving to create work that is a balance of poetic and cognitive dimensions.
