With languages that range from photography and digital printing to painting, graphics and sculpture, the Macedonian artists not only give life to a powerful, creative and original vision, but also reflect on a land with deep cultural roots and a past to be protected. 140 works that are characterized both by their textures and choice of colours, and by their interpretation (at times ironic) of themes - the consumer society, memory, the subconscious, sexuality, the visual message, advertising – successfully recreating a psychological map of the human condition today.

Transfiguring is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression.

This gallery exhibition is designed as a showcase of community-based artworks created through a collaborative artistic process involving Hong Kong artists, representatives of civil society organizations, and students, facilitated by an international artist. 

The exhibition aims to promote participatory community-based art by engaging visual arts students, visual artists and social services organizations in addressing community development issues through the artmaking. It furthermore aspires to raise awareness about the role of community-based art among the general public of Hong Kong. Through documentation of the art making process the participants bear witness to their personal experience, recognize their stories, and their contribution to public memory becomes a meaningful act of social agency. 

Making Art with the Community is supported by The Hong Kong Institute of Education.
