WENU, meaning We & You, is founded by four urban artists from Hong Kong and Berlin, in 2013. The concept of WENU is about painting and creating things not just for “WE” but also “U”. WENU seeks for crazy ideas, originality, uniqueness and beauty, meanwhile, tries to shape the cities better through their art.
Tai Kwun’s Public Art Collection
Tai Kwun Contemporary has commissioned five local and international artists to create public artworks for Tai Kwun. Inspired by these the Tai Kwun store offers some limited collectible items. Bring them home now!
The Japanese artist Izumi Kato (b.1969) depicts human-like creatures that probe real or imagined sources of life. Available for the first time—exclusively for Tai Kwun—as a transparent coloured figurine, this vinyl doll references Kato’s iconic and limited "soft vinyl figurine" series which he began in 2010 and further contributed to his signature soft vinyl sculptures. The figurines refer to Kato’s ongoing experiments with materiality as a volatile element. Their significance lies in their pulsating yet contemplative existence, which subtly evolves beyond process and creation to attain a spirit of their own.
LET'S DO LUNCH MERCHANDISE
“Let’s Do Lunch” is the second chapter of the exhibition series “Lives in Central”. Shedding light on the lives of Central’s workers outside of the office, the exhibition explores how the district’s unique lunch culture helps nurture social cohesion amongst a diverse group of people harbouring different identities.
Many lunchgoers bring along with them a little bag for wallet, phone and staff card, etc. This lunch bag – an “advanced” version tailor-made for takeaway food and drink – is a must-have item for all.
