This catalogue is published for MILL6 Spring Exhibition: ‘Social Fabric: New Work by Mariana Hahn and Kwan Sheung Chi’ ran from 21 March – 23 April 2016. The exhibition presented newly commissioned works by two young artists who in their very different ways have responded to the history, culture and current social fabric of Hong Kong.

Guest curator David Elliott brought to the subject by the young artists. “Berlin-based Mariana Hahn, who last year took up MILL6’s artist residency in Hong Kong, and Kwan Sheung Chi, who was born here […] both confront specific elements within the art, culture, and political ecology of the region. Yet, this is not an exhibition that reflects only the myths and realities of Hong Kong: the rumbustious story of its colonial past, as well as the wavering uncertainty of its uber-materialist present, also resonate strongly in experience elsewhere. In different ways, both Hahn and Kwan pick up on this in their work and, in spite of obvious differences in their education and upbringing, their work has certain parallels.”

The catalogue designed by CoDesign includes an insightful essay by David Elliott on his view of two artists and this exhibition, as well as installation shots of all exhibits.
