五行 Wu Xing ~ Five Elements
by Jyoti Duwadi
About the Book
Wu Xing: Five Elements is a site- specific, multimedia installation where nature and culture merge. It interweaves drawings and paintings using earth pigments, turmeric, and gum arabic with sculptures made from beeswax. The exhibition is inspired by the advent of the Year of the Dragon, the dynamism of Hong Kong, and the architecture of the gallery space.
Jyoti Duwadi interprets the traditional Chinese elements—earth, water, fire, metal, and wood—which represent the fundamental forms of energy. The exhibition offers a multi-sensory experience of smell, sound, and touch with natural materials and functional objects such as bamboo baskets and vessels from Hong Kong and Nepal.
