亂世中的藝術畢業生 | FINE ART GRADUATES IN TROUBLED TIMES

雖然面對近月社會出現的挑戰,學生們於藝術創作上依然持著清晰目光,承擔著對真理及自我表達的索求。香港藝術學院講師及藝術文學士課程統籌馬琼珠認為,支持這群新進藝術畢業生,比以往更不遑多讓。

Despite the recent challenges faced by the Hong Kong Art School/RMIT students, they have maintained a clear vision and a commitment to their pursuit of truth and self expression in their art making. Ivy Ma, Lecturer and BAFA Programme Coordinator at HKAS thinks that it is more important than ever to support these fresh arts graduates.

TWENTY/TWENTY 代表香港藝術學院/澳洲皇家墨爾本理工大學藝術文學士課程最新一屆學生的畢業展,二十六位畢業生的作品將於香港藝術中心包氏畫廊聯合展出。透過實踐,他們探究文化身分、時間、記憶和社會政治議題。作品包括繪畫、素描、陶瓷、雕刻及裝置。

TWENTY/TWENTY is the latest graduation exhibition for the students from the Hong Kong Art School/RMIT Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) Degree program. The work of 26 graduates will be exhibited at Pao Galleries in Hong Kong Arts Centre from 5-21 July 2020. Through their practice, they explore cultural identity, time, memory and socio-political issues. The work includes painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture and installation.

「過去十二個月香港親歷前所未有的挑戰,所有事情好像受到突如其來的群體欲求而觸發。我們發覺有需要重新思索藝術與生命的關係,又或者重劃個人和群體事件之間的尺度。在令人不安的時勢下,鑽研藝術賦予學生一個寶貴機遇,使能直面一己的情緒、身分和經歷,透過藝術創作過程中豐富的物料性以表達自我。我能夠與大家分享本年度藝術畢業生的成果,深感雀躍。他們的創作涵蓋自由、人性和誠信,這一切均是藝術所提供的養分使然。」

“The last 12 months has seen unprecedented challenges for Hong Kong, it all seemed to happen like a sudden collective urge. We found ourselves needing to rethink the relationship between art and life; art and society, and to perhaps, re-formulate the dimensions between personal and collective happenings. Studying art during such unsettled times, gives students a precious opportunity to face one’s own emotions, identity and history and express themselves through the rich materiality of art making. I am so excited to share the outcomes of this year’s Fine Arts Graduates. Their work embraces freedom, humanity and integrity; everything that art nurtures.”

這群畢業生由研習過渡至實踐的藝術家,署理院長陳育強教授並不認為他們是孤身上路。 他說:「若干年後,大家應還記得 2020 是大家畢業的一年,這是香港以至全球格局大變的一年。」

As these graduating students cross the threshold from one of study, to practicing artists, Kurt Chan Acting Director of HKAS doesn’t think they’re doing this alone. “In the years to come, we should be able to remember 2020 as the year when we all graduated. This was the time when Hong Kong and even the whole world changed,” he states.
