The duo exhibition of artists AU-YEUNG Chun and TAM Tak-hei consist of sculptural works made with various found materials. The artists collected different kinds of rubbles and applied new contexts to them. Both the artists share a common act of collecting objects from the street and daily surroundings - the pieces that were abandoned. The leftovers were caused by various reasons. Either accidentally or intentionally, the debris were not only being isolated from their original form, but also being extracted from their original context. While the act of collecting them, bringing them back to the process of fabricating, the once abandoned debris could convey new meanings as an artwork. The anchor shall not be tracing the reasons for causing the existence of those rubbles. Though the original form of that certain subject was gone, what left for us are the fragments we found, we could always work with what we have got to create something new once again.
