When Junk Is Food For Thought
by China Daily Asia
More than 90 bottle caps carrying the image of Nicholas Tse Ting-fung, the famous Hong Kong actor and singer, were lined up on the wall of Connecting Space gallery in North Point. Discarded from bottles of a soft drink brand manufactured in the Chinese mainland , these had washed up on a beach in the New Territories. IlanaBoltvinikand Rodrigo Viñas, who together make theMexicanart collective TRES, picked up these bottle caps mindlessly chucked by consumers and turned them into art. Their show, called Ubiquitous Trash: Hong Kong Edition, has just concluded at Connecting Space, but will open again elsewhere in the city in the coming months.
