CONCEPT OF ARTWORK

The concept invites audiences to consider the survival of two beautiful forms, the passion, dedication and sacrifice required to keep them alive and the consequences if we fail. Materials and processes are based on those found in traditional crafts. The main construction material is rattan, similar to the making of the lion dance head. Knotting and cording are used to secure the joints, showcasing the art of Chinese knots.


ABOUT RED HONG YI (MALAYSIA)

Red Hong Yi is a contemporary artist who makes work expressing her heritage and Chinese diasporic consciousness. Known as “the artist who paints without a paintbrush”, she creates mixed media installations by reinterpreting everyday materials through the accumulation of objects. Combining traditional craftsmanship and digital technology, her work considers perceptual habits and preconceptions on the chosen objects and subjects, expressing themes of women and race.


Red studied at the University of Melbourne. Her work has been exhibited at H Queens (HK), the Asian Art Museum (SF, US), WEF in Davos and Anchorage Museum (US). Collectors include JP Morgan Chase Bank and actor Jackie Chan. Her art has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, TIME, and New York Times.

雕塑構思:

本作呈現了美麗但正瀕臨滅絕的老虎與紙紮藝術,引領觀眾反思這兩個瀕危「物種」的命運、保存它們所需的熱情與犧牲、以及它們滅絕之後的後果。作品中所運用的物料與技藝都來自傳統藝術。雕塑主要以藤條製成,與紮作舞獅頭的物料相似。藝術家運用了繩結及編織的技巧固定雕塑的關節部分,展現了中式繩結的藝術。


康怡(馬來西亞):

馬來西亞華裔當代藝術家康怡的作品,與她的華裔背景及華僑身份息息相關。被稱為「不用畫筆作畫的藝術家」的康怡收集不同日常材料再重新利用,製作成多媒體裝置藝術。康怡結合傳統工藝與數碼科技的作品,令人重新思考自己對作品主題及媒材的一貫印象和固有想法,並探討與女性及種族相關的主題。康怡畢業於墨爾本大學,她的作品曾於香港的H Queen’s、三藩市的亞洲藝術博物館、達沃斯的世界經濟論壇及阿拉斯加的安克雷奇歷史藝術博物館等地展出。摩根大通銀行及影星成龍亦有收藏她的作品;《華爾街日報》、《時代雜誌》及《紐約時報》等報章也曾報導及介紹過她的作品。蘇富比藝術學院曾將康怡列為「11位必須認識的藝術企業家」,她亦曾於2020年被《Tatler尚流》雜誌譽為亞洲最具影響力的人物之一。
