ALLU Upcycle Transforms Antiques into Timeless Art at 100°C Gallery

Explore the intersection of heritage and art through innovative upcycling.

100°C is delighted to unveil ALLU Upcycle, a groundbreaking exhibition representing the gallery's second collaboration with Japan's Valuence Group.

Antiques and vintage items encapsulate cultural heritage, memories, and craftsmanship of bygone eras. Rather than consigning them to landfills, alternative methods can breathe new life into these treasures, preserving the cultural values they embody. The ALLU Upcycle project seamlessly connects the past to the present through various art forms.

Aligned in purpose, 100°C and Valuence seek to impart value to unused items, promoting awareness about overproduction and waste. The Valuence Group has actively contributed to fostering a recycling-oriented society through the resale of luxury goods and antiques.

The exhibition showcases the creations of five artists who have ingeniously transformed vintage items, including kimonos and flower vases. Noteworthy works from Japanese artists KIEN and Yasuyuki Hirano will be displayed alongside those of Hong Kong practitioners HK Carbon, Lin Ling, and Stephanie Yeung Chung Nga. Each artist's unique perspective and self-expression transform forgotten objects into new treasures, carrying history, culture, and craftsmanship forward.

ALLU Upcycle, an integral part of the Japan Autumn Festival, runs until December 5 (Tuesday).
