OPENING NIGHT: Saturday, May 4, from 6pm - 9pm. Free entry.

This exhibition will be on view from May 5 to May 26, concurrently with Kelogsloops' solo show, Breathe.

Little World derives its inspiration from Tsang's own inner child. Tsang has been teaching pottery for 20 years; he started teaching children in 2005, and in order to better relate to them, he cast his inner self back to the age of a child. Seeing the class through a child's eyes allowed him to enjoy the classes as much as they did. Tsang envisions his inner child as a presence that still visits him and gives him simple answers about life's complexities with wisdom, vision, and a sense of humour, and he often connects with this presence when he is creating art. The Little World series is Tsang's interpretation of his inner child's view of the outside world.

Joy in Sorrows - Porcelain sculpture by Johnson Tsang.

Johnson Tsang Cheung Shing 曾章成 - Born in Hong Kong in 1960, Tsang's works mostly employ realist sculptural techniques accompanied by surrealist imagination. In 2002, Tsang started to represent versatile splashes with ceramics. He created the Yuanyang series, which were then collected by the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Yingge Ceramics Museum of Taiwan.

During the past decade, Tsang continues to develop his techniques in capturing the instantaneous moment of splashes with white porcelain. In 2011 and 2012, Tsang's works, "Bowls of Fantasy" and "Splash of Wonder", were awarded the Special Prize of Korea Gyeonggi International Ceramix Biennale 2011 International Competition and Grand Prize of 2012 Taiwan International Ceramics Biennale respectively. Tsang is the first Chinese artist who received these two prestigious international ceramics awards.

Apart from ceramics, Tsang has worked on stainless steel sculptures and public art projects since 2004. He has been commissioned by a number of private companies and public bodies.

In 2009, Tsang received "The Secretary for Home Affairs' Commendation" from the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region for his outstanding achievements in international art events.

Complimentary wine will be available at the opening. For those wanting a non-alcoholic option, we will also have drinks provided by Remedy Kombucha.
