Exhibiting Artist: Au Yeung Nai Chim, Shen Ping, Cassian Lau, Wai Wai
參展藝術家: 歐陽乃沾、沈平、劉啟舜、慧惠

Economic development in the 1960s to 1970s evolved Hong Kong from a small fishing village to a confluence of Chinese and Western culture, with grocery stores in alleys, rickshaws on the streets, nightlife dance halls and floating restaurants. Through our “Remember them? — Old Businesses in Hong Kong through Eyes of Artists” Exhibition, four renowned Hong Kong artists from different generations and creative styles — Au Yeung Nai Chim, Shen Ping, Cassian Lau and Wai Wai celebrate the city’s long-forgotten and disappearing businesses from the 1960s and 1970s. Evoking nostalgia with every stroke, their creations of seemingly ordinary and everyday Hong Kong scenes take viewers on a journey through the city’s history and the craftsmen, merchants and shopkeepers who played key roles in its social and economic life. Through this exhibition, the artists build a bridge from past to present, reconnecting people with Hong Kong’s old businesses, allowing their stories to live on.

香港,從前是一個小漁村,在60、70年代經濟發展下,各行業與生活融合了中西的元素,發展出獨有的文化,如巷弄裡的士多、街邊的人力車、夜生活的舞廳及海上酒家等。「仍然記得佢哋嗎?—藝術家筆下的香港老行業特展邀請四位跨越四個世代的香港知名藝術家—歐陽乃沾、沈平、劉啟舜及慧惠,用不同創作形式,透過畫筆以樸素、細膩及趣味的方式描繪出60、70年代至今被遺忘或消失的行業,看似平凡的日常,情感卻存在於每一幅畫的細節中,令看畫的人不知不覺回到昔日的香港生活氛圍中。藝術家們的作品為城市建立一座時空橋梁,再次聯結民眾與老行業,使他們的故事延續下去。

In this event, Mr. Craig Au Yeung will take the audience on a journey into his father’s art world, inviting us to delve into collective stories happening between people recorded by his father, Mr. Au Yeung Nai Chim who has visited countless spots in Hong Kong to do urban sketching for almost 70 years. Au Yeung’s paintings are never gaudy or meant to please. Yet with his persistent hard work, his moving artistic creations breathe with the times. Artist and art critic Chak will be invited to the lecture together to talk about the artistic creations of Au Yeung Nai Chim.

是次活動將由歐陽應霽先生帶我們走入他父親的藝術世界,描述前輩藝術家歐陽乃沾寫生近70年走遍香港各地方,以寫生方式訴說大街小巷中的人情故事。他的畫風從不嘩眾取寵,而是紮紮實實地耕耘,他動人的藝術創作與時代共同呼吸著。講座特別邀請藝術家暨藝評人翟宗浩先生,一同聊聊歐陽乃沾的藝術創作。

Travel through Time ─ From Movie to Canvas 穿梭時光─從影像到畫布 Speaker講者:Cassian Lau 劉啟舜
Special Guest 特別嘉賓Karen Yan 甄嘉璉


The artist Mr. Cassian Lau moved to Canada since he was a child. Staying miles away from Hong Kong, watching old Cantonese movies and black and white films were the only ways he could understand Hong Kong. At that time, Cassian was fascinated by movies such as “The House of 72 Tenants” and “92 Legendary La Rose Noire” which delivered a unique sense of Hong Kong in the 1960s and 1970s. His impressions of Hong Kong are reflected in his works in a humorous way. In this event, artist Cassian Lau will be in conversation with Art Editor and Art Consultant Ms Karen Yan to share with the audience his artwork creations and extend the discussion into the local pop art scene.

藝術家劉啟舜先生自幼飄洋過海於加拿大居住,與香港身隔萬里,粵語長片及黑白電影是他唯一理解香港的方法。當時,劉啟舜對《七十二家房客》及《92黑玫瑰對黑玫瑰》裡的那種60、70年代香港情懷及時代感十分著迷。他對香港的印象,經過富幽默的方式詮釋於作品中。此次活動,藝術家劉啟舜將與藝術版編輯及藝術顧問甄嘉璉小姐對話,分享自己的創作,延伸對香港潮流藝術及普普藝術的想法。
