An exhibition of traditional Chinese paper cut-outs has been set up to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the handover. The exhibition is co-hosted by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and Chinese Arts Papercutting Association and features delicately-crafted work by renowned paper-cutting artist Lu Xue. Born in Shandong, Lu has practised the age-old folk art for the past six years. The president of the Chinese Arts Papercutting Association, Lu has staged solo exhibitions in overseas countries including Switzerland, Korea and the United States. Her previous work includes a collection of paper cut-outs modelled on the protagonists in Danish storyteller Hans Christian Anderson's stories. Portraying characters including the Ugly Duckling and the Little Mermaid, the collection has been kept at the HC Anderson House in Denmark. The work on show at Central Plaza in Wan Chai includes portraits of 79 local personalities who have played a role in shaping Hong Kong's history over the past decade. Political figures, such as Legco president Rita Fan Hsu Lai-tai and Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen, are featured. Business moguls including Stanley Ho and Lee Ka-shing have also been rendered in paper by Lu. The show runs until July 16 at Central Plaza, 18 Harbour Road, Wan Chai. For enquiries, call 2132 8530.
