相信世界需要更多動漫。

現正準備自己肉身準備異世界轉生。

Observation is a huge part of my art career. I love observing the relationship between structure, forms, and textures of nature. While majoring in CUHK Fine arts, I explored multiple fields in oil painting, photography, video editing and sculpture etc. I found my deep interest in handicraft through ceramic and sculpture making. I applied my skills in sculpting my own realistic ACG figures and artworks. My art study includes how subculture and derivative work fit in the modern art society. I hope to explore how modern artists situate themselves in Contemporary art and Hong Kong society.

My art studies are centered around senses and perception. Recently, I am working on how making art can help us face life struggles and illness. I am attracted to the treatment through “art-making” progress. Through the spiritual progress of making art, we can analyze your thoughts in profound progress. I see myself as intuitive and rational.

Participating artist

2019 英國倫敦 Slade School of Fine Art, University College London美術學院藝術文學士

謝恩旗的作品通常為雕塑裝置,而裝置中的物件都相互映襯——中央塌陷的手製裝幀書籍、石膏和樹脂打鑄的發泡膠片與忌廉、石膏枕頭與屈折金屬等,不一而足。藝術家揉合了各式各樣的物料,如矽膠、木材、複合水性樹脂、布料、金屬,甚至水果和甜點等有機物質,用以製作或打鑄作品。謝恩旗的作品圍繞物件與人際關係的互為主體性深入探究。人們對日常生活中常見的物品都有慣性依賴,源自於對這些物品的觸感和用途的記憶。藝術家透過不著痕跡地顛覆日常用品的型態,探索依賴情緒的拉扯與輕重。

謝恩旗以透過文字與物料構建富質感的地貌為己任,並致力在詩詞的字裡行間和雕塑裝置中滲透親密感。她期望能透過作品體現對平衡、重量和質量的敏感,引導觀眾反思對每件物品的。

2019 BA Fine Art, Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, London, United Kingdom

Arielle Tse’s work often consists of sculptural installations. Objects are made to reflect each other, handbound books with sunken puddles, cast chips and cream, hardened sinking pillows and bent metal, etc. They are made or cast with various materials, including silicone, wood, jesmonite, fabrics, metal, and sometimes include organic matter such as fruit and confectionery. They revolve around an investigation into the inter-subjectivity of objects and human relationships. She explores the push and pulls, as well as the lightness and heaviness of attachment emotions through subtly subverting everyday objects, sprung from memories of touch and function for each of them.

Tse focuses on constructing tactile landscapes through text, material, and attempting to permeate intimacy into poetry and sculptural installations. She aims to pose sensitivity to balance, weight, and materiality through her work, make the viewer question their established perception of the individual objects, and how they can serve as analogies for human relationships.

IV Chan

陳子雯 
IV Chan

參展藝術家
Participating artist

陳子雯的創作圍繞身體等命題,嘗試透過雕塑和裝置的形式,探討人的原罪和如何淨化,當中涉及各種神話、宗教、地域傳統與禁忌的制約等等。人類其脆弱的軀幹給”存在”帶來無可幸免的恐懼與悲劇…但何以我們還會堅持與此共存? 最終,必定會引申提問有關由身體所產生的種種”矛盾性”。藝術家在回顧自己身體的經歷,同時也探索在藝術實踐中所用的材料及其轉化作用。從充滿著矛盾的身體中,希望可以找出肉體的新潛能。過程充滿了激情、波動及種種沒法預料,最後達至形而上的踰越。陳子雯現於香港中文大學藝術系兼職教授雕塑, 最近入圍了大館藝術家工作室駐埸計劃, 會在六-八月份展開駐留。

Through installations and sculptures, IV's artistic interest is rooted in the juxtaposition derived from the complexity of the human body and its soul. IV sees our inescapable and corporeal existence as tragic and ludicrous; sordid and pure. She inspects her own problematic bodily experiences while exploring the interrelationships between Man's original sin and their ways of catharsis.

Probing this specific arena, namely the “problematic body”, all sorts of ambivalences evolved within including sex, death, sacrifice, violence, taboo, religion, mythology to posthuman are being confronted and questioned. As a presumptuous being, IV creates works as a means to seek new perspectives and anticipations of the mortal flesh, whereas the transfigurations of materials are assiduous and humble efforts of the artist in striving for an ultimate metaphysical state of transgression.

IV was recently selected to participate in the TaiKwun Artist's Studio Programme from June-Aug 2021 and she is also currently a part-time lecturer in The Chinese University of Hong Kong teaching Fundamental Sculpture.

Jessie Cheuk Lam Tam

譚綽琳

Jessie Cheuk Lam Tam 

參展藝術家
Participating artist

譚綽琳生於1993年香港,喜歡帶遺棄物回工作室聊天,久而久之物料也想「成為什麼」。她情感多多,常藉故發揮傷春悲秋,說要縫製生活現實並擁抱脆弱作為人類的本質。她是個創作著眼於「失敗」卻無法面對失敗的藝術家,她的作品親密、頹廢、易於收納、方便攜帶、不太長久,她希望從作品中學習不完美,並與世界進行協商。

她目前於荷蘭Frank Mohr Institute 修讀繪畫碩士課程,有時站在垃圾桶前,還被貓叫停。2018年畢業於中文大學藝術系,她通過無聊的工作使自己快樂。

Jessie always falls into the hole of human feelings. She said, "I want to fill in the gaps with life's realities, and embrace vulnerability as human nature." Listening to the unheard voice of unwanted materials, her work also grows a reflexive response of “whatever they want to be something at the moment”. She is an artist who focuses on failure but not able to face failure in reality. Her work is a game of intimacy, wherein everything is fragile, child-like, low-brow, easy-to-make, and not meant to last but easy to bring along. Such an everyday practice to look at, and live with what we have lost and what we have compromised, she negotiates the world on a day-to-day basis for a hidden process of self-revelation. 

She is currently studying the Master of Painting Programme at the Frank Mohr Institute in the Netherlands. She likes to stand in front of free shelves, trash cans, and sometimes stop by a cat. She puts bread in the cupboard to get moss and become a poor artist. She makes herself happy by doing silly work.

參展藝術家
Participating Artist

盧永滔,生於1998年香港,於香港中文大學藝術系畢業。熱衷於感受和玩弄活於香港所體驗的種種次文化。他專注以非傳統的「錯誤」方式創作平面及立體的混合媒介裝置作品,來回於勞動與創作這兩種模式之間。

盧常著急地利用邏輯,透過作品分析自己的情感和精神經驗,同時感受著一個雙重世界。

Ringo Lo Wing Tao (b. 1998, Hong Kong) graduated from the Fine Arts Department of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is enthusiastic about juggling the many subcultures one experiences when residing in Hong Kong. Specializing in 2D and 3D mixed-media pieces and installations, he purposefully uses unconventional ‘wrong’ means throughout his creative process, teasing the ideas of labor and art-making.

Through his works, Lo makes desperate attempts with his logic to analyze and reason with his emotional and spiritual experiences, also feeling the world in duality.
