Blurring the literal boundary between home and gallery, between art and decoration, between curatorial practice and interior design, between (Far) East and West, Molar Productions proudly presents

Or I Ching, You Ching, We All Ching… for I Ching.

Imagine an empty room.

Where to put things, all your personal stuff including artwork neatly or not requires geomancy or the art of placement which the Chinese call feng shui. Otherwise the flow of chi is disrupted and negative energy results from lack of Kansei engineering.

But no need to fret or fear.

With fu dogs, ba quas and joss sticks in hand, Johannah Silva (portage ARTspace founder and director) and Larry Lee along with their ersatz team of select artists, designers and craftspeople such as

Gabriel Bizen Akagawa, Christina Dougherty, Sean M. Gallero, Surabhi Ghosh, Ling-An Fang, Avika Bhansali, Greyson Hong, Molly Jinam Kim, Cecca Morrone, Joanne Aono, Hui-min Tsen, Hee Jin Koo, Naomi Yorke, Shreya Sethi, Laura Kina, James Kao, Martin Kim, Emily Lin, Ana Kei Ut, and Regin Igloria
