WONG Kit Ting

The practice of Wong Kit Ting (Kit) stretches across such mediums as Chinese painting, ceramics and drawing. Kit draws inspiration from her surroundings and people. She is obsessed with animal kingdom and human aging issues. Through exploration of these natural forms of life, Kit deconstructs and reselects aspects of animals and the elderly and represents them as truthful and indispensable aspects in society. She tries to follow their path to step out of an imaginary journey into their world. she thus shortens the distance between herself and these particular communities, and realizes how they are facing and responding to the world.

Regarding materiality, Kit has extended experiences and possibilities of materials, searching for the transformation and vitality of matter. Kit currently works on the theme of food via different media. In her current work ‘Mapo Tofu’ (2018), she observes and presents the characteristics of this Cantonese dishes, and transforms it into a Chinese landscape painting.

A family meal with five dishes and a soup,
cooked by my grandfather,
accompanied by my tailor-made wares for each dish and each family member.

Being closely related and mutually dependent,
filled with our family warmth and time.

Those indelible marks left on the ware are exactly
our memories that my grandfather and I made together.

連繫著一家人的一頓飯,
公公炮製的五餸一湯,
配上了我為每一道菜、每一個人度身訂造的容器,
唇齒相依,各司其職,
盛載了屬於家人的時光。
食器上洗不掉的,如烙印般留下的,便是我和公公共同製造的珍貴回憶。
