Catalogue design or Yeo Workshop on the occasion of the group exhibition Klaus by Hayama Projects. The brochure unfolds up to more than a metre in length, holds Luca Lam's take on a familiar folktale ‘Hansel and Gretel’ by the Brothers Grimm as inspiration. Klaus is based on an imaginary character of the same name. Klaus, a village boy, chances upon the woods and retrieves breadcrumbs left by Hansel and Gretel – in a trail that was initially meant to lead them home. Instead of potentially saving Hansel and Gretel from being eaten by the witch, Klaus’s curiosity leads him to collect the leftover breadcrumbs in an attempt to piece together and reassemble a full piece of bread. His action inevitably changes the plot and focus of the story. Set against this back- ground, Klaus embodies a figure of idiosyncrasy, misinterpretation and misappropriation. The artists included in this exhibition each has practices that explore themes of memory, landscape, and labyrinth.
