Ceramics space: Mudheytong Gallery, HK Human Rights Arts Prize & in the studio: guitarist Alan Cheun

2020-05-20
The old and working-class district of Sham Shui Po has now become a hip and creative area. As The Works has highlighted in past programmes, many artists, art galleries and spaces, design workshops, boutiques and cafes have all decided to set up shop there due to the relatively affordable rent. One new enterprise in the neighbourhood is Mudheytong Gallery. The three Hong Kong ceramic artists who founded the space say they hope not only to promote the art but also to engage the community.

Established in 2013 by Justice Centre Hong Kong, the annual Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize honours artists who explore human rights issues both locally and internationally. Six prizes were awarded this year. The winning works are on show at the Goethe-Institut Hong Kong until 6th June.

Guitarist Alan Cheung draws on both rock and metal music for his influences. He played in the local progressive metal band, “Mystic Dream” until it was disbanded in 2012.
He recently released a new single, “Betray the Truth” that he says took him three months to write and record. He’s here to tell us more, about that piece and about his work in general.
