亞洲協會香港中心舉辦《尋林覓趣》夏日計劃 | HIDDEN FOREST AT ASIA SOCIETY HONG KONG CENTRE

亞洲協會香港中心舉辦《尋林覓趣》夏日藝術文化計劃,為大眾帶來一系列合家歡活動和體驗,探索本地生態,著重關注香港林木和生物多樣性,從而推廣環境保育的重要。

Asia Society Hong Kong Center presents Hidden Forests, a summer arts and culture project offering many events, programs and experiences for all ages. Focusing on local ecology, Hidden Forests celebrates Hong Kong’s trees and biodiversity and promotes the importance of caring for the environment.

超強颱風「山竹」在2018年9月吹襲香港,摧毀大量樹木。《尋林覓趣》受山竹颱風觸發,以藝術展覽、音樂系列、社區工作坊和生態導賞團等節目,探討樹木對本地文化、歷史和環境的重要性。《尋林覓趣》匯集本地藝術創作者和生態學專家,透過跨界的活動強公眾對保育香港森林和生態多樣性的意識。

Inspired as a response to Hong Kong’s devastating loss of trees caused by the tropical cyclone Typhoon Mangkhut in September 2018, Hidden Forests includes an art exhibition, a music series, community workshops and nature tours—amid the urban nature and heritage site of Asia Society Hong Kong Center—that explore the significance of trees to our local environment, culture and history. The cross-disciplinary program brings together local and international artistic talent and expert ecologists to strengthen public awareness about forestry and biodiversity in Hong Kong.

《見樹亦見林》為計劃的精選項目之一,以多感官的藝術作品反映香港的林木和環境狀況。展覽包括十位本地和國際當代藝術家,當中6件作品為全新的委約創作,均以本地生態環境為題。參展藝術家包括:何兆南(1984年生,香港);曲倩雯(1990年生,香港);鄧啟耀(1988年生,香港);樹後生活(2008年成立,香港);James Prosek (1975年生,美國);Haley van Oosten(美國);楊沛鏗(1988年生,香港);Sally Bunker (1949年生,英國);納堤‧尤塔瑞(1970年生,泰國)及Allora & Calzadilla (1995年成立,波多黎各)。

A highlight is the multi-sensory exhibition, To See the Forest and the Trees, which features artworks by ten local and overseas contemporary artists responding to the forestry and environment of Hong Kong. The exhibition includes six brand new commissions inspired by local ecology, participating artists and collectives including: South Ho(b. 1984, Hong Kong); Vvzela Kook(b. 1990, Hong Kong); Frank Tang (b. 1988, Hong Kong); Post Tree Lifestyle (est. 2018, Hong Kong); James Prosek (b. 1975, USA); Haley van Oosten (USA); Trevor Yeung (b. 1988, Hong Kong); Sally Bunker (Hong Kong/UK); Natee Utarit (b. 1970, Thailand) and Allora & Calzadilla (est. 1995, Puerto Rico).
