「和富」將於2020年2月15日至4月底舉辦全新展覽「Merry-Go-Round 氹氹轉 菊花園」，並由香港藝術家黃嘉瀛策展。
WORFU announces a new art exhibition “Merry-Go-Round (氹氹轉 菊花園)”, curated by Hong Kong artist Wong Ka Ying, will be held from Saturday, 15 February until the end of April.
承接較早前舉行的「新。北角」藝術展以及對本地藝術家的支持，「和富」推出「WORFU Art Attack」系列第二部曲「氹氹轉 菊花園」藝術展，與大家發掘關於北角從舊到新、從懷舊到時髦的社區文化和各種連繫。為此，七位本地藝術家與策展人將於「和富」呈獻當代藝術展覽，讓各位以藝術角度欣賞這獨特社區的美麗。
Continuing the support for local artists and as a sequel to the art exhibition “New North Point” in 2019, WORFU unveils its second chapter of the “WORFU Art Attack” exhibition series — “Merry-Go-Round”. The new exhibition will shed light on North Point’s transformation from old to new, young to mature. The seven local artists on show and the curator recognise the importance of the district’s social cohesion and are proud to present the community with this exciting new exhibition which celebrates the beautiful intertwining of past and present.
“氹氹轉 菊花園”, similar to Merry-Go-Round in English, was inspired by the beloved childhood game. In order to play Merry-Go-Round, children hold each other’s hands to form a circle, as they sing rhymes and dance. The game is a special memory to many Hong Kong grown-ups; the rules and the specific rhyme of the game have been passed from one generation to another, from parent to child. The concept of the Merry-Go-Round is built upon the idea that strong bonds and relationships are formed and transformed between the old and new, as they pass on ideas of sharing and caring, and community storytelling over the years.
透過在「和富」- 位處城市心臟地帶、街坊熟悉的地標 – 建造一個室內遊樂場，讓街坊、商場訪客、路人，不論老少，皆稍稍停下腳步，欣賞這些藝術作品，與家人和朋友共度歡樂時光，開啟過去與未來的對話。
By building an indoor playground in the centre of North Point, in the heart of the community mall WORFU, “Merry-Go-Round” hopes to spark a dialogue among “Kai-Fong” (people living in the neighborhood), daily users of the mall, shoppers, passers-by and eventually everyone! It is WORFU’s sincere hope that the community will take a moment from their day-to-day errands, enjoy the Art Attack platform, and experience a moment of fun and pleasure with their families and friends, before stepping out of the mall and heading back into the future again.
