Hong Kong Limited Edition
“MY HONG KONG by macaroni” Embroidery Collection
Kumiko Suzuki, an embroidery artist from Tokyo, worked as an editor for a local publishing house. She visited Hong Kong many years ago and was attracted by its unique culture. Later on, she decided to quit her stable job and focus on hand embroidery, using the pseudonym "macaroni" (the iconic Hong Kong style breakfast) to record her beloved Hong Kong.
This collection includes ten local delicacies and transportations in Hong Kong, using threads to create designs that embody the essential cultural elements of local daily life.
“Hong Kong & Me” – words from macaroni
I have used the name “macaroni” ever since I started working as an embroidery artist. Among all the reasons for choosing this name, the major one would be its vivid representation of a typical Hong Kong-style breakfast menu.
It was around 20 years ago when I first visited Hong Kong. I saw office workers in formal suits walking pass modern high-rises, while old butchers in just a pair of short pants cutting up meat at the wet market nearby; modern MTR trains rapidly carrying countless passengers, while ferries with repeatedly repainted faces crossing the harbour in a steady and slow pace; high-end Chinese restaurants serving traditional Cantonese menu with beautifully painted ceramics, while local canteens serving Hong Kong-style menu with colourful melamine plates. I also saw English street names and signs everywhere, while old ladies in bob cut wearing Chinese costumes walking underneath. All these unbelievably amazing contrasts made me fall in love with Hong Kong immediately.
Back to office as an editor, everything about Hong Kong was still so unforgettable. Therefore, I started to spend my leisure time on hand embroidery, hoping to record daily scenes of Hong Kong through stitches on cloth. Themes related to this city, from old buildings, markets, transportations, signages, tearooms to Chinese restaurants, are all creative inspirations for me – although some are fading out gradually. Hong Kong is like my comfort zone since it had accompanied me when I lost my loved one and faced uncertainty about my relationship and future. Whenever I travelled to Hong Kong, it became my precious time since it gave me lots of energy and support. Expressing the characteristics of Hong Kong in my embroidery and sharing the unique culture of Hong Kong with more and more people around the world pave the way for me to give back to the city. Hong Kong is facing different challenges. I hope my embroidery works can call for more attention to this lovely city.
In my daily life as a creator, I always think about Hong Kong, and I hope that Hong Kong can still be the Hong Kong that I am familiar with.
