The exhibition will bring travellers through an immersive journey of revival for Hong Kong Mahjong craftsmanship. The illustrator Karen Aruba’s grandfather setup the ‘Fuk Hing Lung Mahjong Factory’ in 1963 and experienced a range of ups and downs before finally closing in 2009. Together with her father Master Ricky Cheung, they have kept the ‘Art of Mahjong Craft’ spirit alive again with the new art studio reinvented in JCCAC the latest effort to revive this old tradition with a modern twist.
The exhibition features a trendy mahjong new designs presenting ideas integrated with valuable hand-carving skills, technology, artistic values mixed Chinese and Western cultures. Visitors will experience the joy of mahjong from an all-new artistic angle.
We have also invited freelance photographer AndyPoll to feature three fine art photos in a high contrast black and white style, showing the almost 50-year history of Fuk Hing Lung Mahjong Factory which has drastically changed from the first factory in Kowloon Wall in 1963 to a bigger space in Kowloon Bay in the 80s and 90s, and more recently revived into Karen Aruba’s studio in Shek Kip Mei.
