1a空間 在 藝術博覽會 2022

 1a space @ Art Fair 2022

1998年,1a空間由一群香港藝術工作者創辦,並一直以推動當代藝術創作、實驗和交流為本。多年來,我們有幸連結不同領域的藝術工作者,當中包括來自本地及海外的藝術家、策展人、寫作人、教育家、研究員等。有賴彼此合作,我們發展出多樣性的藝術項目,涵蓋展覽、藝術教育、藝術家駐留、社區藝術及刊物出版。

 

為致敬多年累積的藝術社群,是次展覽重新聚集9位藝術家及1個藝術組合。他們投身創作的時期不一,創作思維與模式不同,卻彼此間相互牽引、觸動。透過他們的作品,隱約看見交流與碰撞的痕跡。而藝術社群又如不斷擴展的網絡,每個分支的末端將觸發新的連結。我們期望通過觀眾的參與,牽動新的藝術連結。

In 1998, 1a space was founded by a collective of Hong Kong art practitioners, with hopes to create an independent platform for the making, experimentation, and exchange of contemporary art. Since then, we are honoured to have gathered different local and international art professionals, who are artists, curators, writers, educators, researchers, and various other creative roles. Through mutual support, we explore diverse forms of artmaking, ranging from exhibitions to community outreaches.

 

As a tribute to the artistic community that has been central to our years of experimentation, we invited 9 artists and 1 artist collective from previous projects to re-join us on this occasion. Collectively, they represent local creative makers rising from different generations, and how they have utilized a spectrum of artistic vernaculars to materialize thinking. Between them, there are also visible traces of exchanges, which illustrate the community as a continuously expanding network. Taking on its loose ends, this showcase seeks to weave new connections through the medium of artworks.
