以藝術調劑 尋回呼吸節奏|MODULATE THE BEAT OF BREATH THROUGH ART

KC100 Art Space 呈獻《呼與吸的距離》視覺藝術展 Breathe in Breathe out以我們生命中最簡單卻又不可或缺的一瞬間為題,邀請香港十位本土藝術家記錄一呼一吸間被我們遺忘的事物,我們曾迷失的時刻,窺探城市生活中營營役役的步伐。

參展藝術家各以不同藝術媒介詮釋「一呼一吸」所代表的生活意義,包括立體雕塑、攝影、陶瓷、混合媒介等,並以日常生活的常見之物為素材,創作品貼近生活議題,例如李慧慈和盧婉嫻分別透過混合媒介和陶瓷訴說城市人「打工仔」的工作壓力,李漢南以實驗般的藝術創作喚醒生態環保意識;李穎筠則用黑白攝影反思生活中的喜怒哀樂及抉擇時刻,另外,林智略以金屬雕塑藝術品重新定義生命開始與終結的意義。

都市生活的急促節奏使我們都忙於追趕一切,甚至單純為了追趕而追趕,忘記了最初的生活意義,《呼與吸的距離 》則提醒我們要尋回喘息空間,反思生活中被忽略、被漠視的事物,重新調整呼吸節奏、思索生活的意義與目的。

“Breathe In ‧ Breathe Out” Visual Art Exhibition presented by KC100 Art Space depicts the simple yet significant moments in our life, in which KC100 invites 10 local artists to record the moments that we miss out, we lost in the hustling life, expressing how they reminisce those moments through art.

Featured artists re-define their own meanings of “breath in, breathe out” by transforming everyday objects into art through various mediums such as three-dimensional sculpture, photography, ceramics and mixed media, creating a strong connection with our ordinary life. For instance, Lee Wai Chi and May Loo express how the working class undertake immersive pressure through mixed media and ceramics respectively while Henry Lee’s experimental artwork aims to increase public environmental awareness. Carol Lee’s photography wall and palette as a reflection of the ups and downs, motivating the visitor to find their own orientations in their life. Frank Lam’s metal wire sculptures offer an unconventional perspective on reviewing the meaning of birth and death.

Perhaps we are too dedicated to catching up with the fast-paced life for the sake of pursuing and we forget the initiative aspiration. “Breathe In ‧ Breathe Out” reminds us to take a rest from the hustling life, to reflect on moments or things that we neglecte and undervalue. Now, it is time to modulate the beat of breath and rethink what we really live for.
