Peel Here is an interactive exhibition which examines the art of peeling, encouraging audiences to revisit their everyday gestures and other menial tasks in the scrim of our sensorially-overloaded world. Driven by independent research lab Atelier HOKO, alongside six design researchers from NAFA’s School of Art & Design, their explorations are unravelled across 17 exhibits at the Lim Hak Tai Gallery.
Displays such as “Peeling is Everywhere”, “What is Peeling”, “Peel / Peeeeeeel”, and “Instruction for Peeling” unpack audience perspectives on the seemingly trivial gesture, while prodding them to scrutinise the act. “Let’s Peel Together” and “Other Forms of Peeling”, seeks audience participation to experience various forms of peeling, with the latter prompting scrubbing, rubbing, scratching, and scraping. The exhibition aims to present a fragment of our world where peeling is performed and as quickly, forgotten–ultimately, bringing heightened awareness and enjoyment to the motion.
