Incompleteness and incomplete beauty.
In the "emptiness" one can see infinity,
In the "silence" one can experience eternity.
新銳設計師品牌 ænrmòus 首個系列發佈後，共同策劃之 Pop-Up Event 緊接展開。為期一整月的活動橫跨 2021 年十二月底至 2022 年一月初，將分成兩個階段進行。
第一階段品牌發佈 Pre Season 獨家系列 「The Origin Collection」限量發售；第二階段正式陸續釋出主線 2022 春夏系列「Radiative Compound Dissociation」新品，透過運用繁複工藝細節設計與不對稱解構等元素營造出品牌一個反文化且神秘背景。
期間限定活動於本店 The Cell 空間裡以半展覽形式進行，配合 ænrmòus 品牌形象裝置與陳設，極富意識形態呈獻。
In a world where the designer and the personality are often placed ahead of all else, Ænermòus operates differently. The anonymity of the designers is what is important, for this allows the product and the process to be the driving force behind its creations. Ænrmòus was conceived under the belief that as a faceless entity, it would have the ability to operate in the shadows.
[Thé Extricatión (Part I)] —— Exclusive Origin Collection
Incompleteness and incomplete beauty. You can see infinity in "emptiness", and experience eternity in "silence." Its monotonous shape and color can make the human body feel a leisurely and contented, unmodified, unrestrained life interest, emphasizing a implicit and introverted beauty. The broken place makes people feel the imperma-nence and fragility of life, which raises a feeling of self-reflection and cherishment. In turn, people's pain is relieved, from sadness to leisure-ly, and a kind of indifferent beauty is obtained.
SS22「Radiative Compound Dissociation」collection release with new decor setup for the pop-up.
[Thé Extricatión (Part II)] —— Radiative Compound Dissociation
Ænermòus has emerged-couture shapes and mixture with different fabrics. Decisive rebellious thematic and vision, to the background of a colliding mix of countercultural and epochal references. For Spring Summer 2022, unisex garments violently explored as fashionable, eccentric and experimental with style. Its debut Spring/Summer 2022 collection titled 'Radiative Compound Dissociation', the emerging tech artisanal label ticks all the right boxes. Playing with details including layers, detachable and adjustable elements, asymmetry, deconstruction and more.
【庫 HEPHAESTUS | Cold Weapon Exhibition】
2nd April - 16th April 2021
是次 IMPLY 將與本地單位 武器屋Weapon House 聯合舉辦《庫 HEPHAESTUS》冷兵器工藝品展覽，展示一系列武器屋主理人 Rei Tsang 獨家私人珍藏，讓觀展者透過眼球穿梭古今，一睹銀幕上的神兵利器，觀賞現實與虛擬世界之間變化萬千的戈劍盔甲。
此外，本展覽特別邀請到來自台灣的設計公司——回轉設計Return Design 共同合作，選用其以冷兵器為創作靈感的原創字體「兵體」作平面設計，屈時亦會設置相關「兵體」展品及海報，以另一角度體現主題的延伸。
[庫 HEPHAESTUS | Cold Weapon Exhibition]
Cold weapons are traditional weapons that were widely used in wars before combustive weapons were popularised. Cold weapons may be regarded as historical artefacts nowadays. The swords and their blacksmiths; the heroes and their fantasies, all seem to be vestiges from the Renaissance. However, it can be reemerged before our eyes through exquisite, superb craftsmanship.
庫 HEPHAESTUS: Cold Weapon Exhibition is presented by IMPLY and Weapon House, showcasing a series of exclusive collection by Weapon House’s founder REI TSANG. Allowing visitors to travel through time via vision, witness the fictional armaments that came true from the silver screen, and explore the diversity and variety of cold weapons from both reality and fantasy.
In addition, we are pleased to have invited RETURN DESIGN to collaborate and implement their original, cold-weapon inspired "Weapon Font" on the exhibition’s graphic designs. Posters and exhibits regarding "Weapon Font" will be displayed, as an artistic extension to the experience of the exhibition.
回轉設計 Return Design 為台灣的設計公司，善於以影像敘事打造形象識別。展覽中各項平面設計所運用到的「兵體」是由共同創辦人林廷翰先生所設計的原創字體。
[Exhibition's Merch] —— Hephaestus Keychains (Sword/Axe)
Made with 304 stainless steel. Resin crystal embedded, totems laser-printed on the sword and axe. Weapon fonts and logos laser-printed on the steel plate. All polishing and crafting are handmade by Weapon House and co-designed by IMPLY.
【SAY YEAH x IMPLY : REQUIESCAT DEATH EXHIBITION】
20th November - 4th December 2020
《寢》展覽由 IMPLY 與死嘢 SAY YEAH攜手合辦，試打破一貫對死亡的禁忌，以互動的展覽形式帶出生而為人必須面對的命題。讓觀展者從「寢室」開始，給自己一個機會，窺探不同人的死亡觀，嘗試與內心展開有關死亡的深度對話。
The Cell 於展覽期間被改造成為「寢室」，設置巨型「雞枕」與「我將如何死去？」留言牆，利用透明筆及紫外光燈「窺視」他人答案進行互動交流。同時更擺設真實殯儀用品與一系列有關死亡的書藉，讓參觀者能夠從而探究死亡，反思生命。死嘢創辦人 William Chan 亦不定時地於展覽現場跟有意的觀展者進行 Pillow Talk，談心說理，談生說死。
REQUIESCAT: Death Exhibition was a collaboration between IMPLY and SAY YEAH, a local death education charity organisation. The interactive exhibition intended to break the taboo and initiate a dialogue of death. From the "Bedroom", viewers can have the chance to peek at others' thanatopses and ruminate on the death of their own.
The Cell was transformed into a "Bedroom", with the centre piece which was an enlarged version of a Cantonese funeral pillow, and an interactive wall for leaving answers to the question "How Would I Die?". With memos and "invisible pens", the visitors could write down their answers, then take a glimpse of others' responses with a UV light torch. There were also a series of books about death and authentic memorial product(s) for viewers to read and reflect upon life and death. The founder of SAY YEAH William Chan was here for viewers who were interested in having a "Pillow Talk" with him.
【SEAN MUNDY x IMPLY SELECTED WORKS EXHIBITION】
3rd - 24th July 2020
The exhibition of Canadian photographic artist Sean Mundy was the first exhibition IMPLY had organised and hosted. The ideology from his conceptual imagery photography had captivated us ever since we shared his work last year.
Working through self-doubt and questions of identity, Sean constructs austere, yet neutral and distant scenes of palpable tension and uncertainty. With a subtle, minimal approach he aims to disrupt, select from, and delete classical narrative formulas to form scenarios that are reliant on subjective associations.
With his meticulously constructed, photographed, and digitally manipulated images, he combines visual vocabulary from iconography, symbolism, and surrealism to present moments of dissonance between the individual, separate states of self, and collective systems. Using human form as a stand in for emotion, psychology and physicality, the specific subjects are rendered subservient to the conflicts arising in the works.
