Opening Reception

Shirley Tse, Phoebe Man Ching Ying


Shirley Tse and Phoebe Man both studied in the West Coast of the United States, and their works are culturally influenced by both places.

Tse’s works are largely made from plastic, including custom-moulded pieces from raw materials and consumer goods. Her interest is in ‘plasticity’, both at the material and on a conceptual level, and its manifestation in art objects. Man presents her latest work since studying in the US, a combination of web art and video work. She also invites the visitors to view and join in her ‘games’ in the cyber world, which are intended to reveal male desire and female self-identity.
