Designed specifically for Seravezza and Hong Kong, FUSION is a cultural project that aims to create a dialogue between different realities and artistic experiences. Through a call for participation, artists working in Tuscany, a beautiful region in Italy; and Hong Kong, a southern part of China, are invited to co-create sculptural works using the two materials that tell the story of their territory: white Carrara marble from the Apuan Alps and wood from Hong Kong.The end result of this exchange are sculptures born from a "fusion" of materials and ideas from distant worlds.
They will be exhibited at the same time in Seravezza at the Arkad Foundation and at the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (vA!).
Curated by Silvia Vannacci, FUSION is organised by vA!, and Arkad Foundation, founded by Cynthia Sah and Nicolas Bertoux. It is in collaboration with the Italian Institute of Culture Hong Kong, the Municipality of Seravezza and the institutional support of the Consulate General of Italy in Hong Kong.
The artists are, for the Tuscany side, Francesca Bernardini, Lorenzo Vignoli, Flavia Robalo, Jacob Cartwright and Aurélien Boussin; for the Hong Kong side, Danny Lee Chin Fai, Yaman Chau, Ho Yuen Leung, Margaret Chu and Violet Shum.
