KAN Ka Wai

Kan Ka Wai is a person who likes to explore the development of thoughts, emotions, subconsciousness, sensibility and the relationship with oneself. She prefers to paint simple and get rid of complexities in a picture as much as possible. She expresses ideas with simple lines or forms using unsaturated colours. Kan intends to explore the relationship between thoughts and events around her. Most of the time, Kan enjoys reflecting on her daily life to find elements that inspire her to create such as her feelings on something or some events. She also likes to study the relationship between herself and her family members, as they are people who affect her the most. Even though family is a regularly explored theme, Kan believes that it is a multifarious topic, and repetition will not eliminate the details of each story. Understanding that her artworks might not be influential to everyone due to their personal nature, she hopes that the audience will be inspired to find out about their values and self-awareness from studying themselves.

簡嘉慧的創作主題以自我為中心,通過研究自己,尋找自我意識,發掘自身的價值。她喜歡探索思想、情感、潛意識或自我關係,從自我反思至刺激感受,繼而發展成作品。

簡嘉慧也喜歡研究自己和家人的關係。即使關於家庭的主題不斷被討論,但人與人之間的聯繫是獨一無二的,因此細節亦永不相同。

Is a broken relationship unilateral in a family? To me, my mother is always the destroyer to our family whereas I used to be a victim unconsciously.

I pieced up my mother’s jewelries’ collection and the relics from my own body as trying to repair our relationship.

一個家庭中破裂的關係是單方面的嗎?我一直認為母親是家中的破壞者,卻不知自己已經習慣成為一位受害者。

這次,我利用母親的收藏飾品,以及從自己身體取出的部分作重新拼合,嘗試修補彼此的關係。
