Bedroom is pleased to present Maslow, a group exhibition by five local artists from Hong Kong. The exhibition represents a series of works that revolve around Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, each artist illustrating each level of the theory as seen through their respective backgrounds and experience.
The theory, proposed by Abraham Maslow in 1943, is often depicted in the shape of a pyramid with the most fundamental needs at the bottom and the need for self-actualization at the top. Maslow’s theory suggests that the most basic level of needs must be satisfied before the individual can focus on the higher level needs and subsequently realize a person’s full potential.
This collection of works acts as a physical embodiment of the pyramid of needs and will be occupying the exhibition space on the top floor of the building as well as the rooftop. Through different practices and the use of various materials sourced locally from around the area, the artists collectively curate objects and create installations that reflect their own interpretation of Maslow’s theory, in turn pushing the viewer to explore their own dimensions of needs.Artists: 陳普林 Chan Po Lam 陳翰林 Chan Hon Lam 黃樹豐 Sherwin Wong 黃子維 Jerry Haha 許先菲 Fei
