Greg Leong Kwok-Keung: Remembering Chinese

5 – 29 July 2000

Greg Leong Kwok-Keung is an artist based in Tasmania, whose exhibition Remembering Chinese consists of lavishly decorated Chinese costumes and textiles based upon traditional designs and motifs. Utilising the symbolism of the dragon and ‘Double Happiness’, these richly crafted objects and textiles attempt to reclaim and understand the rich layers of Leong’s cultural heritage as well as to recontextualise the traditional within the contemporary.
