The Consistency of Art Amid Severe Pandemic
Written by CHAN Hiu Tung Ada
Co-presented by Art Together and Hong Kong Bird Watching Society, the latest Fishpond Sustainable Art Festival takes "Fishpond Canteen" as its theme. Affected by the pandemic, the participating artists this year gained inspirations in significantly different ways compared to the previous year. In what perspective will Studio Biped and Fiona Lee, who joined the festival for the first time, create artworks related to Tai Sang Wai? As for Brandon Chan, Ricky Luk (Humchuk) and Ku-Sem Evelyn, who gained an understanding of Tai Sang Wai last year, how has their relationship with the villagers and the way of artmaking changed this year? Impressed by the rural village flavour and the charm of the pastoral scenery, all the participating artists hope to present the connection between the Tai Sang Wai fishponds, the migratory birds, the environment and the villagers.
