In conjunction with the exhibition “mould the wing to match the photograph,” featuring the archive of Mrinalini Mukherjee, one of the most prominent sculptors in India, AAA invites three emerging Hong Kong artists, Tiff Chun, Ho Ming Yan, and Vivian Wong Wing Lam, to conduct creative workshops in response to the exhibition. By providing students with a platform for artistic dialogue, the artists will lead students to engage with Mukherjee’s themes and practices. The workshops encourage students to delve deeper into the exhibition, fostering meaningful connections with Mukherjee’s work to inspire their own creative responses.
The workshops are free of charge for secondary school groups (up to twenty students). Registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Workshops held from October to December 2023 open for registration on 3 October 2023 at 11am HKT. (The quota for November is currently full)

Unravelling the Obsessions of Daily Life
Facilitated by Tiff Chun
The two-session workshops explore Mukherjee’s fascination with various sites, contexts, and objects through her excessive photo-documentation of daily life. To better understand Mukherjee’s artistic process, students will transform everyday materials with imagination and creativity through the processes of documentation and collage. The workshop not only provides insights into Mukherjee’s artistic practice but also serves as a catalyst for participants to uncover their own obsessions within daily life through observation. Students will be encouraged to explore their personal fascinations and to reflect, create, and confidently embrace their artistic voices.
Knotting & Body Movement
Facilitated by Ho Ming Yan
Language: Cantonese and English
The two-session workshops will build on the connection between contemporary dance, which explores the intentions and methods of bodily improvisation, and Mukherjee’s interest in the dancing body and the use of intuition during her knotting process. Through knotting and bodily movement, students learn to engage in artistic creation through intuition and perception. The workshop aims to guide students to fully embrace art-making as a process and explore ways to engage the body in artistic creation.
Let It Grow
Facilitated by Vivian Wong Wing Lam
Language: Cantonese and English
The two-session workshops investigate the concept of growth within the context of bodily experience, creativity, and documentation. Through creative activities and close readings of the artwork and archival materials, students explore connections between organic growth and artistic expression. The workshop will guide students to pay attention to organic processes found in daily life, as well as provide them with tools to critically evaluate the creative process.
