Hong Kong Art School’s sculpture major combines woodworking, metalworking, mixed media, soft sculpture and even audio-visual media. While traditional and experimental elements are of equal importance, it also promotes the revitalization of traditional craftsmanship. Students are encouraged to explore contemporary sculptures such as cross-sector art language and material nature, social and spatial elements.
Led by local artist, seasoned curator and alumnus Mr. Joe Chan Kiu-hong and jointly curated by six sculpture graduates of the Hong Kong Art School ,the ‘Material and Physics’ Sculpture Exhibition addresses common questions about the choice and application of materials for sculpture creation, for instance, “What are the relative application and processing skills required for the physical characteristics of the material?”, “How to design the piece to achieve an anti-gravity effect?”, “How to install or display the finished product?”, “How to present or record? “. A series of options and combinations effectively connect art, science, physics, logic, experience and perception. If the finished product is regarded as a result, can the production process be viewed as a narrative or content itself?
