收藏 · 日常 | COLLECTIONS · EVERYDAY

或許,你不曾察覺自己是一個收藏家。或許,我們的日常正是藝術的來源!

Have you ever thought about being a collector? Maybe you already are one! Where does art come from? Maybe it’s from our everyday life!

大館當代美術館將於2018年9月15日至2019年1月4日期間,舉辦兩個公開徵求展覽「張三李四收藏展」及「日常邊界」。公眾透過本次展覽,可以欣賞香港策展人以及來自本地及世界的藝術家別具一格的創作。

「張三李四收藏展」

早於2017年7月,短髮工作室邀請多名本地藝術家共同參與是次展覽,在香港舉辦了一系列工作坊。工作坊首先向長者徵集他們收集的物件與個人故事,嘗試展述這些藏品背後的意義,發掘當中鮮人知的故事。這個計劃後段的展覽部分,由七位本地藝術家和組合參與,透過藝術家思考收藏的意義。藝術家姚妙麗、李繼忠、夫婦鍾惠恩和吳家俊以創作回應「素人收藏家」中所發掘的人物;馬琼珠從專門收集舊報章的藏家中找到靈感,以他們背後的歷史及情感因素作為創作切入點;梁美萍、劉智聰、趙慧儀既是藝術家亦是收藏家,他們以自己的藏品作為創作起點,從個人志趣延伸到社會層面。

「日常邊界」

「日常邊界」由亞洲兩位藝術家鄧國騫(香港)和下道基行(日本)共同創作。他們通過各種形式的參與及探索,思考有關日常與邊界的題旨。當中除了展示藝術作品外,兩位藝術家更利用大館的現場環境,讓參與者彼此對話。無論他們是走進本地志願者的生活,或是通過工作坊讓中學生展開對話,他們同樣要處理因應地理環境、以及文化傳統中的人際關係而出現的想像邊界。兩位藝術家常以這些探索為作品主題。

Tai Kwun Contemporary is showcasing Hong Kong curators through two open call exhibitions this season. Running from 15 September 2018 to 4 January 2019, Collections of Tom, Debbie and Harry, and Our Everyday — Our Borders are two art exhibitions presented by Hong Kong institutions and curated by local curators, in an initiative where Tai Kwun supports curatorial practice in Hong Kong.

Collections of Tom, Debbie and Harry

Presenting a number of local artists, Collections of Tom, Debbie and Harry began its journey in July 2017, when Short Hair Studio organised a series of workshops for senior citizens in Hong Kong. Attempting to solicit narratives around the profound value of keepsakes, the workshops invited these elders to reflect on their belongings and the memories within; stories which have seldom been told. The resulting group exhibition is an artistic response to these topics, by seven local artists and artist groups. Yiu Mui Lai, Lee Kai Chung, and artist couple Chung Wai Ian and Ng Ka Chun present artworks inspired by the “unintentional collector” with whom they collaborated in the elderly workshop. Ma King Chu, chooses to intervene the historical and sentimental aspects of a few collectors’ assemblage of newspapers from the old days. Leung Mee Ping, Lau Chi Chung and Chiu Wai Yee will play a dual role of artist and collector, each making use of their own collectible items as the source of inspiration and the vehicle for making art.

Our Everyday — Our Borders

Our Everyday — Our Borders brings together works by two Asian artists, Tang Kwok Hin (Hong Kong) and Motoyuki Shitamichi (Japan). They reflect on the themes of the everyday and of borders, through various forms of participatory practices and explorations. In addition to object-based works of art, both artists have created conditions of dialogue and interaction to produce the setting on display at Tai Kwun. By intervening in the lives of local volunteers, and by establishing dialogue during workshops with secondary school students, they have confronted the imaginary boundaries created by geographical conditions, human relations and cultural traditions. These explorations are frequent themes in the practice of both artists.
