We are happy to announce to belong, an exhibition by Michelle Pei Ting Huang, as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Michelle Pei Ting Huang is a native of São Paulo who has recently written and illustrated a children’s book under the name of Elle Pei. She has completed her MDes studies in Industrial Product Design at Coventry University in 2009 and had a stint working as a product designer at Maybe Design in Istanbul, Turkey.
Currently she is exploring the fields of illustration, cinemagraphs and coding. She enjoys people watching and likes to compare quotidian habits from different cultures. Michelle has a fascination in engaging with daily activities in which others would usually describe as mundane. She aims to bring in the weird and alluring aspects of these activities through her work.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
Aren’t we constantly seeking something or a place in which we want to belong to? Running away from the sense of being adrift, we seek connection with the people and the essence of our surroundings.
What is this place made of? Who are these people that makes this place so unique? What is the essence of this environment?
My work is a series of documentation of my will to connect more than just physically with Itoshima and its people.
