2016年初,藝術到家舉辦了兩次源野生活節(Sustainable Fest),集合不同背景的有心人,以大自然為師,為習慣文明生活太久的我們,尋回與大地的連結。

2017年的秋冬時份,藝術到家延續源野理念,籌辦為期半年的《源野呼吸》大地藝術營, 合共舉辦了兩次大地藝術公開講座和五次大型露營創作活動,十位來自不同界別的本地藝術家帶領一百七十位參加者在大嶼山和西貢郊外就地取材,以雕塑、拼砌、組裝等形式進行個人及集體創作,例如趁清晨潮退在西灣沙灘用樹幹圍繞身軀刻畫大型沙灘畫、利用營地廢棄鋁罐和枯枝烤焗炭筆、在白臘灣利用遊人腳印和海灘垃圾拼砌圖畫、以泥土和牛糞燒製陶器等。






It’s been decades since land art was considered novel.

Since ancient times, humankind has been borrowing materials from nature to create things. Not only would they sculpture and paint inside caves, but they would also present natural scenery and the emotions of being inside it on landscape paintings. During the 1960s and 1970s, a number of American artists started mobilizing themselves to the vast and remote regions to create a series of site-specific artworks in response to the ruthless commercialization of the gallery system. Their works, created mostly out of resources found in mountains, streams, ocean, forest, etc., are categorized as ‘land art’ for their necessary connections with the nature. Today, contemporary art does not confine itself to a specific form. Similarly, land art does not confine itself to its earlier state. In spite of that, land art still retains a close affinity to nature.

Land and art in Hong Kong: what can they be like?

In 2016, Art Together organized two Sustainable Fest, gathering urbanites from all backgrounds to return to the mother nature through a series of art celebrations.

In the fall of 2017, with a view to furthering the spirit of sustainable living, Art Together launched the 6-month “Breathe in the Nature” Land Art Camp, hoping to bring together the city dwellers and its natural assets. In total the group has organized two public introductory talks on land art and five large-scale camping series in Lantau Island and Sai Kung. Out of natural resources such as rock, wood and soil, a hundred and seventy participants created their sculptures, collages, installations, etc. under respective guidance of ten local artists from various artistic backgrounds. Interesting examples include circle drawing on the morning Sai Wan with trunks and human body as centre, charcoal baking with canned dry wood pieces, a collage of footsteps and wastes found on Pak Lap Wan, pottery baking with mud and cow dung, etc.

Art Together first initiated “Breathe in the Nature” series in 2013, but did not realize it due to financial reasons. The following years saw a scatter of land art camps attempted by local art groups- it has been five years by now. By sharing our art camp experience this time, we hope to inspire and facilitate land art attempts in Hong Kong.


In the future, what will make our land and art in Hong Kong?


Hope to see you in nature.
