AsiaArt Archive (AAA) has launched a new series of education resources online for all kinds of educators—Artist Exercises with the theme of “Learning at Home”, supporting boundless circulation of knowledge, and reexamining the role of art during school suspension in this challenging time.
設定於家中進行的藝術家練習由藝術家兼教育工作者創作，始於希望啟發中學教師如何跳出課程內的限制，構思更多不同教授當代藝術的方式，現授用於所有在家自學的大眾。首輪參與的本地藝術家包括： 羅玉梅、勞麗麗 、白雙全 、彭倩幗 、鄧國騫與曾德平。此系列旨在引導師生與社會反思疫情下的個人經歷、社會議題，以至藝術在窘境中的意義， 藝術家們以具創意的手法，探討個人表達、社交距離、人際關係、人際溝通以及本地糧食供應等議題。
These home-based Artist Exercises are initially designed to inspire secondary school teachers with different ways of teaching contemporary art beyond the curriculum, have now also become practical for homeschooling. Started off with contributions by local artists-educators Law Yuk Mui, Lo LaiLai, Tozer Pak Sheung Chuen, Beatrix Pang Sin Kwok, Tang Kwok Hin, and Kith Tsang Tak Ping, the exercises aim to encourage teachers, students, and the general public to reflect upon their experience after the coronavirus outbreak earlier this year, including the relevant social issues, and the purpose of art in times of emergency in the local environment. The artists explore topics include personal expression, physical distancing, relationships, interpersonal communication, and food supply through creative approach.
鑒於疫情在全球肆虐，文獻庫希望進一步豐富「在家學習」系列，邀得一班海外藝術家參與創作，包括：常羽辰、Nilanjana Nandy、Christian Nyampetav、Mariam Ghani、Sanchayan Ghosh以及Hồng-An Trương。他們以不同的面向與方式回應這個非比尋常的時刻，重新構想藝術於疫症與全球封關中所扮演的角色。這些有著不同背景和藝術實踐的藝術家悉心設計的教學練習，從而思省時間、公共空間、衛生、個人、社區以及同理心等議題。
In light of the recent pandemic situation, AAA has decided to enrich the Learning at Home series by collaborating with international artists. We have invited art practitioners Chang Yu chen, Nilanjana Nandy, Christian Nyampetav, Mariam Ghani, Sanchayan Ghosh, and Hồng-An Trương to join and create more exercises, bringing in different perspectives and methods to respond to this unusual time while reimagining the roles of art amid the pandemic and global lockdown using their own experience. These art practitioners of different backgrounds and practice will contribute exercises that rethink topics such astime, public space, hygiene, individuality, community, and empathy.
All six exercises by Hong Kong based artists-educators are now available on AAA’s website for exploration, other six exercises by international art practitioners will be fully launched by June.
