Most of the works in this exhibition were created specifically for this occasion. Before coming to Macau, it was difficult to imagine a multi-dimensional art space like Artelli. During the preparation period, we learned about the city’s emphasis on art development and its potential. Collaborating with the Macau team for the first time has shown us their international perspective and execution capabilities. We hope to bring more art projects to Macau in the future.”
