Graduated with majors in Sociology and Fine Arts in 2015, Erin holds a strong passion for art and culture. She is currently an Associate Curator at 大館 Tai Kwun. Her curatoral practice centres around performance and participatory work, site-specific art, the poetics of materiality, and cross-disciplinary experiments.
Erin’s most recent curatorial project is the emo gym, currently on exhibit at Tai Kwun.
Short for “emotion gymnasium”, emo gym was inspired by one of the featured artworks by Michele Chu, inti-gym, short for “intimacy gymnasium”.
Unlike the gyms where mainstream aesthetics and standard theories of “body management” apply, in emo gym, there is no one clamouring at you to work out this way or that; there are no set recipes for “emotion management”. Rather than eliciting intellectual revelations on the one hand or inducing spectacular awe on the other, the artworks on show are subtle and sincere creations close to the hearts of the artists, inviting you to pause, take a breath, look closely—and open yourself up in return.
Upcoming talk at Art Central
