Fashion Sound– Inevitable Noise

We always look at those we love to see and hear, but that doesn’t mean that those we hate have simply vanished. As life goes on, we have just learned to embrace them all.
While Yeung Chin was researching for the new theme of his SS20 collection, Chinese culture came to his mind. Realising how the uniqueness of Miao culture matches his avant-garde concept, he was particularly mesmerised by the Miao’s mysterious Gu poison and Miao costumes which incorporate an element he loathes: ringing bells. As the artist was learning to accept and love the noise that he previously dislikes, he decided to include ringing bells as an important element in his new collection. Together with new art pieces that he specially made for this exhibition, his works are displayed in various forms: 1) Action: Sensors are set for the audience to interact with the sounds of ringing bells 2) Dance Performance: The sounds of ringing bells fills the air when dancers dance in special ‘ringing bell costumes’ 3) Miao A Capella: Some of the commonly heard slogans are sung in the form of Miao a capella
Can clothes be a musical instrument? And what about our bodies?
Come explore and find the answer in this exhibition!
