The profound influence of Feng Shui, the most ancient of the Chinese traditions, sways along within our many walks of life; a physical influence permeating the core of society, its subtle meanderings weave through us like wind over water.
THE NATE is proud to present the group exhibition Connectere, showcasing five local artists in collaboration with Feng Shui Master Kanlung Cheng. Each artist tackles one of the five elements – metal, wood, water, fire, and earth – through their respective mediums.
Running from May 1st to May 10th, we cordially invite you all to experience Connectere art show, to explore the fascinating connections that bind perspectives of Feng Shui and Art.

About Angel Hui Hoi Kiu
Deeply inspired by traditional Chinese art, Hui’s meticulous brushwork as a contemporary ink painter reinvestigates the idea of value within existing found objects; her works unearth the meanings of daily mundane materials – such as facial tissue, rice paper, and sometimes porcelain; the application of ink to the delicate reinfuses them with unpredictable associations and perceptions, transformative after the ink has left its mark on the nature of everyday objects.

Bringing in a wide berth of experience from his days in the field as the founder of Sick Sick Creation – a creative storytelling and brand building agency – KC Wong is a multi-disciplinary artist known for apt visual communication. Involved heavily with illustration, animation, visual merchandising, and art creation, his style draws fluidly from as many inspirations as his many disciplines, a testament to his deep understanding of each.
About Sharu Binnong Sikdar
A Hong Kong born Indian Filipino, Sikdar’s artistic practice explores the relationship between nature and human beings. Using natural found objects such as tree branches, barks, leaves, and human hair; her labour-intensive and repetitive reconstructions with the organic creates a connection towards the ephemeral nature of life and self-growth.
About So Wing Yi, Soyi
