In this talk, artist Xinwei Che invites participants to escape the rush of the everyday and experience time expansively through the rhythms of clay and water. She shares her interest in geology, mending, traditional Chinese medicine and offers a brief sensory meditation through clay wedging.


This programme is held in conjunction with the exhibition Holding Time《实 · 空》by Xinwei Che.


Mask-wearing is optional. However, audiences are encouraged to continue to exercise responsibility and caution, such as wearing masks when in crowded places.
