CHIM↑POM “IT’S THE WALL WORLD”
Tokyo-based artist collective Chim↑Pom staged their inaugural act in Hong Kong at The Mills Gallery in August 2015. “It’s the wall world”, an on-going project initiated in 2014 at the Asian Art Biennale in Bangladesh consists of component artworks accumulated from across the globe. Chim↑Pom carved out jigsaw pieces from The Mills, which was the first jigsaw piece to be taken from Hong Kong. The inclusion of The Mills in the artwork pays homage to Hong Kong’s textile and garment industries as local pillars of economic growth. The pieces from The Mills Gallery were exhibited alongside global ones in London, as part of Chim↑Pom’s landmark solo show in September 2015.
