AAA HBC Exhibition 3 690 wide.jpgSKY YUTAKA are the Exhibition design partner for Asia Art Archive’s new exhibition, ‘ Excessive Enthusiasm: Ha Bik Chuen and the Archive as Practice’.

As part of a Asia Art Archive pilot project, Excessive Enthusiasm invites the public to experience the Hong Kong artist’s parallel practices that included photographing exhibitions he attended, collecting materials ranging from illustrated magazines to artist portraits, and constructing collage books and  multiple practice of documenting and archiving.

Featuring a bespoke modular system the exhibition design has a flexible approach which responds to various scales and ways of representation and allow the visitor to engage with the various lines of inquiry stemming for Ha Bik Chuen’s vast archive collection and appreciation of the materials and reading of the space.
