Two series of "Blossom Series" and "The Pleasure" are created By Tong Chong and Noah Ng Fong Chao, and show in this exhibition.
New works of the Blossom Series that explore the definition of beauty in people's lives through daily nuances of life. The rapid spread of information nowadays bring constant impact on people, from daily living habits to folk traditions, people have a new understanding of beauty. As people’s way of thinking changes with time, there is always a new definition of beauty. Tradition is rooted in people’s lives – how will it be under this influence? There is much food for thought.
Artworks of The Pleasure express different cultural values are prone to misunderstandings and even conflicts due to cognitive differences. The artist created the artworks based on Ye Quan's "Pilgrimage to Lingnan" - according to the artist, if what is written by Ye Quan described the superficial cognition of the Chinese to the Western customs, then he would like to use this misunderstanding of the West to create his artworks.
由唐重與吳方洲分別創作之"繁花記系列"及"豫遊" ,共同展出於此次畫展。
繁花記系列的新作中,以探討人們生活裡對美的定義,從生活的細微之處去發現。當下網絡訊息的快速傳播,五花百門的資訊已給人們帶來不斷的沖擊,無論是日常的起居習慣和民俗傳統,人們對美有了新的體會,是深層次的感悟,還是偏好媚俗的品味,在時代的變遷中,人們的觀念也在轉變,傳統的民俗精神和形式,會是如何的境況,然而他們已植根於我們的生活中,如何與時俱進,還是原地踏步,都是值得我們思考的。
在豫遊一系列作品,主要表達了不同的文化價值觀,因認知上的差異容易產生誤讀,甚至產生衝突。藝術家以葉權《遊嶺南記》作為創作文本,如果說文中描述的是盡顯中國人對西方風俗的膚淺認知的話,那藝術家故意嘗試盡豫遊之樂,並通過以刻意誤讀的方式來創作。
