藝術家經常從不同國家的文化和藝術品取靈感,製成的作品象徵跨國的互動和對話。Peer to Peer:UK/HK以網上展覽形式,於2020年11月11日(星期三)至2020年12月13日(星期日)展示英國與香港之間國際文化交流的成果,包括來自英國和香港藝術家的全新及現有數碼藝術作品。

Artists have always taken inspiration from works all across the world, even those a few oceans away. The resulting works are often dynamic interpretations that facilitate transnational dialogue. To celebrate international cultural exchange between the UK and Hong Kong, the Peer to Peer: UK/HK Online Festival has launched an online exhibition of new and existing digital artwork from UK and Hong Kong based artists from Wed 11 November to Sun 13 December 2020.

要開啟一段穿越時空之旅嗎? | A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME AND SPACE

藝術創作的歷史以及藝術工具和材料的歷史,兩者之間有著千絲萬縷的聯繫。每個時代都有新的媒介被開發出來,亦會對於傳統媒介作出新的修正與認識。般哥展覽館由十一月二十四日起舉行的展覽「藝術機器 過去/現在」正探討藝術創作和工具之間的關係,並提供了一個歷史框架,理解新媒體藝術如何融合到這傳統當中。讓我們了解更多關於展覽的各個部分,探索展覽如何帶我們穿梭古今。

The history of artmaking and the history of tools and technology are inextricably linked. With new media being developed, knowledge of traditional media is also being reconceptualized. The exhibition Arts Machines Past/Present,which will be held at The Indra and Harry Banga Gallery from Nov 24, explores the long-standing connection between artmaking and machines. Let us take you through different sections of the exhibition to explore how it provides a context for understanding the ways new media art fits within this tradition.

原來竹也可以很美 | THE POETICS OF BAMBOO

自古以來,竹作為生活工具,可以說是無所不能;作為文化符號,文人雅士愛其謙謙君子之性。除了我們在街上看到的裝修竹棚、飲茶時用到的蒸籠、每天吃飯用的筷子等,原來竹也是藝術創作的媒介。法國竹藝家Laurent Martin “Lo”就利用竹勾勒出和諧的曲線,懸掛空中的作品宛如中國書法中優雅的筆觸。10 號贊善里畫廊為他舉辦了個展《穿越虛空》,並同時在今年巴塞爾藝術博覽會“Spotlight”上展出他的作品。

Since ancient times, bamboo has been a ubiquitous part of our daily life. A multi-faceted cultural symbol, the humble bamboo also represents endurance and longevity. Other than the bamboo scaffolds we see on streets and the bamboo steamers used to hold dim sums, bamboo is also a medium for art creation. The gravity-defying bamboo sculptures by Laurent Martin “Lo” swing in the air, drawing curves of harmony like the gracious strokes of Chinese calligraphy. His solo exhibition, Crossing the Void, is being held at the 10 Chancery Lane Gallery, whose works will be presented at Art Basel Spotlight art fair as well.

與機器對話:藝術與科技的進化史 | IN DIALOGUE WITH MACHINES: THE EVOLUTION OF ART AND TECHNOLOGY

假如我們現在乘搭時光機回到石器時代,跟原始人說當代藝術家不再在岩壁上作畫,可以透過VR技術在空氣中創作,他們一定會認為我們癡人說夢。但在科技日新月異的現代社會,越來越多技術被應用在藝術創作中。般哥展覽館在十一月下旬舉行的展覽「藝術機器 過去/現在」正探討藝術創作和工具之間的關係,向我們展示科技並非藝術創作的絆腳石,而是成就其誕生的條件。

In today’s increasingly diverse modern society, the proliferation of new technologies, above all the computer, has afforded an ever-widening repertoire of material and symbolic forms from which art can be created. The exhibition Arts Machines Past/Present,which will be held at The Indra and Harry Banga Gallery in late November, explores the relationship between artistic creation and tools, showing us that technology is not an impediment to the making of art but a condition of its possibility.

縫合世代的回憶 | WEAVING INTRICATE MEMORIES

一件流傳下來的衣服看似平平無奇,但往往盛載著獨一無二的歷史和跨世代的故事。CHAT六廠(六廠紡織文化藝術館)的展覽「尹秀珍:補天」以紡織品,探討補綴和修復個人與周遭環境,以及所屬社區之間關係的想法和行動。

A piece of ordinary fabric may not stand against the test of time, but it is often interwoven with everlasting memories, containing stories that cross generations. The winter exhibition in CHAT (Centre for Heritage, Arts and Textile), Yin Xiuzhen: Sky Patch, explores the idea and the very action of patching and repairing one’s relationship with their surroundings and the various communities to which they belong through the common thread of textile.

重新思考藝術新紀元:香港藝術學院秋季展覽 | RETHINKING ART FOR A NEW ERA

在發展迅速及高度商業化的香港社會,純藝術的存在顯得格外難能可貴。純藝術的價值在於滿足我們的精神文化需要,帶來視覺衝擊並引發深層次思考。香港藝術學院的藝術文學士畢業生將於十一月底參與「典亞藝博2020」並展出作品,個別作品以新冠疫情下的香港作創作背景,透視香港不為人所察覺的一面。與此同時學院藝廊亦正舉行「物料與物理」雕塑展,藝術文學士雕塑畢業生透過作品展現創作過程中對不同物料及媒體的考量。

畫布中的超現實夢想 | ILLUSORY CANVAS OF DREAMS

有些藝術家擅於利用空間和凝視等概念,讓觀眾產生錯覺:當大家以為現實和畫中的世界是分開時,畫家卻刻意模糊兩個世界的邊界。韓幸霖在安全口畫廊的展覽 《昨日日光》中,透過她一貫的風格,探索繪畫和空間的關係。

Art often plays on the illusion of space and gaze: at first glance, you seem to be looking into another space separated by the painting, but if you look closer, another space emerges beyond the canvas. Hilarie Hon’s exhibition in Gallery Exit, Yesterday Brightness, plays with the idea of gazing and looking while showcasing her personal style of strong and complementary colors in her works.
