漢字展: 流連在文字風景 | HANZI EXHIBITION: LINGERING IN THE HANZI LANDSCAPE

漢字是世界上最古老的文字之一,時至今日仍歷久不衰。為了讓大眾更了解漢字這個與生活息息相關並充滿趣味的文化符號,PMQ 元創方 ​將於2018年6月21日至7月10日舉行「漢字展」,展出超過100位來自香港、中國內地、台灣、澳門、日本及韓國等地設計師的漢字作品。

漢字展 Hanzi Exhibition 將由平面設計作主導並涵蓋其他表現媒介,於亞洲鄰近地區徵集以漢字為主要視覺元素的作品。展覽整合了過去20年的精采創作,參展的各地名師包括來自香港的靳埭強 (Dr. Tai-keung Kan) 及柯熾堅 (Sammy Or),中國內地的韓家英 (Han Jia Ying)及蔣華 (Jiang Hua),日本的淺葉克己 (Katsumi Asaba)及服部一成 (Kazunari Hattori),還有台灣的游明龍 (Yu Ming-lung) 等。此外,一眾年輕設計師亦會以前瞻性的角度和手法創作全新作品。是次展覽的作品所展現的並不囿於單純的字型外觀,它們具有時代感、緊扣生活脈搏,並賦予漢字在當代時空下新的意義和聯想,好讓觀眾從多個角度深入欣賞漢字的魅力,在這時代的一片文字風景裡得到啟發。

After thousands of years of evolution, Hanzi (Chinese characters) still endures and proudly upholds a unique writing tradition despite the tribulations of time, history, and cultural shifts. Widely used, even today, by different societies across Asia, Hanzi is not only the world’s oldest living form of textual communication, it is also one of the most fascinating. Now PMQ is putting Hanzi under the spotlight in a unique Hanzi Exhibition from 21 June to 10 July 2018.

With graphic design at its core, the Hanzi Exhibition showcases the work of more than 100 designers from Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan, Macau, Japan and Korea, where Hanzi is still being used. The featured designers include Dr. Kan Tai-keung and Sammy Or from Hong Kong; Han Jia Ying and Jiang Hua from Mainland China; Katsumi Asaba and Kazunari Hattori from Japan; as well as Yu Ming-lung from Taiwan. In addition to the work from the established masters, a group of emerging young designers will also be displaying new works in an exhibition with a forward-looking perspective. The Exhibition explores the changes, development and future of Hanzi through its interaction with modern social life and under the influence of modern technology.
