"Presence” examines relationships between humans and nature, questioning both presence and absence and invites the public to immerse in existential themes involving identity, intimacy and meditation.

 

《存在》是由三位藝術家藉著個人特性、熟悉的語言和沉思,以展現人與自然環境微妙關係的作品展。她們對存在和不存在兩者之間作出提問,並把內心的感受投射於畫作、雕塑及裝置藝術之中,藉以邀請觀眾在是次展覽中融入於存在的主題裡。​

Artist Introduction​

Rebe Wong

Rebe Wong is a Hong Kong based multi-disciplinary artist focusing on personal and cultural issues. With a minimalistic visual language, Rebe utilizes sculpture, installation and embroidery to depict feelings of longing, interpretations of her mother’s singing and the reality of living in Hong Kong. Rebe asks personal and universal questions of what defines identity.

王依荳是香港土生土長的多媒體藝術家。她的作品主要圍繞著在自己與母親親密的關係以及在其居住環境感受到的社會問題。她藉著細微、簡約的刺繡和裝置藝術抒發自己對母親歸來的期待,同時也透過打破本土的傳統禁忌揭示出值得深思的社會矛盾,並對自己的身份作出反思。

 

 

Ingjerd Holten Ytterdal

Ingjerd Holten Ytterdal’s paintings revolve around finding time for stillness in a busy modern life. Ingjerd embraces the process of chance and the act of pouring paint becomes a meditative practice. Capturing moments such as her oldest child moving away from home, her work reveals the complex fact that presence and absence always means something to someone.

 

Ingjerd Holten Ytterdal是現居於香港的挪威藝術家,她在忙碌的生活中作出反覆的思考,借以返回原來的平靜。看著液體的流動,她猶如放下心裡的執念。看著子女的離開家園的事實,她透過種種顏色的變動,比喻自己作為母親慢慢放手的心情。

 

Happy Lee

Happy Lee is a multidisciplinary artist focusing on deconstructing conceptual identity. Working in painting and sculpture, Happy believes that absorbing and digesting new things is an important life value. She examines identity by painting hair preserved in jars. As hair is DNA, it is unique and defining. Happy explores human relations by preserving history and maintaining the presence of her family.

李悦彤是本地藝術家。她藉著油畫、裝置藝術及攝影對自我做出剖釋。她的作品經常包含頭髮的元素。對她來說,頭髮是身份的秘密、成長的象徵。透過收集自然掉落的頭髮並小心收藏在玻璃瓶裡,她就如逐漸了解自己獨特的個性,同時把家人的存在緊抱在記憶和感覺中。
