Sculpture is not as explosive as other art forms.
Even so, it can be enduring, becoming part of your life.
When you are away from it, you will find that
Something is missing in your life.
—Liu Yang

Artspace K is proud to present “ROADMAP”, a solo exhibition by acclaimed contemporary sculptor Liu Yang. With his carving knife, Liu made a unique journey to create sculptures across countries and around the globe. His works are widespread over five continents, with some resulting in cultural heritage of the lands.

“When I create sculptures in one place, I find that local children play in the shadow of my works. They grow with the sculptures. One day, these children may leave their hometown. When they return, everything may look different except those three-dimensional figures. Sculptures last, they are where the heart and childhood of people lie.” Liu thinks that sculptures are the best things he can bring to a local community.

The exhibition demonstrates true declaration of love for interaction and emotional connections between people and the land which are at the heart of the artist’s playful works. We hope to touch every viewer and bring back memories of sculptures in their own motherland.

雕塑這種藝術沒有那麼強的爆發力,
但是它會長久存在,成為你生活的一部分,
當你離開它的時候,才發現,
原來你的生活中少了一個東西。
—劉洋

「版圖」特展,Artspace K邀請知名當代藝術家劉洋,他拿著雕塑刀,在世界各國創作雕塑,開啟了特殊的環球之旅,作品版圖遍及五大洲,部分雕塑則成為當地永久的文化遺產。

劉洋說:「我在當地創作雕塑的時候,看著當地孩子在自己的雕塑底下穿梭玩耍,在雕塑影子裡長大。這些孩子長大後可能會遠離家鄉,但當他們回到家鄉的時候,也許一切都變了,可是雕塑還在那裡。這個雕塑,就是他們的家鄉,就是他們的童年。」他認為,這是他帶給當地人最美好生活記憶。

這次展覽的創作主題環繞在人與土地之間的互動及情感,且富童趣的作品,期待他的作品能觸動每一位觀眾,想起代表家鄉的那一件雕塑。

Art and Life: Public Art in Hong Kong (Cantonese) 生活中的啟思:走進香港公共藝術  (粵語)Speaker 講者: Ian Leung Wai-Yin 梁偉然
 
Hong Kong’s public art first appeared in the 19th century in the form of monuments. Nowadays, local public art has developed into multiple forms, aspects, mediums, and for various purposes. Public art is closely associated with life, filling people with inspiration. This lecture will introduce Hong Kong public art’s historical background and developing progress. By sharing compelling examples from local programmes, the lecture will discuss the effect of public art on communities and the public, as well as its prospects.

香港的公共藝術早在19世紀以紀念碑形式出現,發展至今,本地的公共藝術已擁有多元化的形式、方向、媒介與作用。公共藝術聯繫生活,甚至可以給人們帶來生活的啟思。講座將向觀眾介紹香港公共藝術的歷史背景和演變,分享本地公共藝術項目的有趣例子,探討公共藝術對於社區、大眾之間發揮的作用,以及未來可能的發展方向。
