Hong Kong multimedia artist Agnes Pang is spreading positive energy during the Covid pandemic through the unlikely media of household waste! As an advocate of recycled art, Agnes not only focuses on spreading the message of environmental protection, but she hopes her work can inspire people to appreciate the beauty in the people and nature around them. Rather than using traditional brush and paint, she uses daily household reusable as media to present her artwork.
This August, Agnes is showcasing her artwork made from foam nets in various locations around the city. Her solo exhibition named “reborn” will be held at Central’s PMQ (Room 309) from 21 August to 3 September. Find her vegetable and flower display presented at Pioneer Centre in Prince Edward from 22 August until the end of the month. Two other artworks will be also placed in Pause Café in Mui Wo from now until 24 September.
In addition to the exhibits, Agnes will be hosting two upcycling workshops in D-Park for St James’ Settlement Jockey Club Upcycling Center. Create paper quilled art using magazines or learn how to turn egg cartons into mini plants on 22 August and 30 August respectively.
