《解讀恩尼格瑪》
2020年1月10日 - 2020年2月9日

1a空間榮譽呈獻當代藝術群展《解讀恩尼格瑪》,展出四位本地年輕藝術家的全新作品。是次展覽的參展藝術家為1a空間主辦的《新銳當代藝術人才培育計劃》第二部分:青年藝術家培育計劃(香港)的獲選藝術家。本計劃旨在招募和挑選本地具潛力的新晉藝術家/藝術畢業生進行交流及展出,展覽記錄了藝術家們在過去3個月內與1a空間董事會及策展小組成員的交流經驗及學習成果。

恩尼格瑪指謎般的存在,取自英譯「Enigma」。在此象徵四位藝術家作品中隱藏著難以在瞬間解讀的想像與迷思。觀者在與作品短暫相遇的時間,以自己的經歷及體會解讀作品本意,最終也許只與恩尼格瑪的造境擦身而過,回到現實的時區。本展覽探索城市人在遊走陌生和熟悉環境之間,所陷入虛實同時存在的物質世界中產生的心理及情緒狀態。

四位藝術家的作品將會在展區內和戶外空間展出,類型包括繪畫、聲音、錄像裝置和行為藝術。以海洋作為共同的創作起點,周姍祐與何梓駿各有獨特的美學和手法。周運用文字、影像和裝置,以想像建構內容,以海為題與同一空間展示的畫作互相呼應,在簡約美學上用聲音和圖像呈現想法;何以輕巧纖薄的紙材透過重覆浸透及風乾的繪畫過程製造的起伏質感,就像一條條皺紋似的海浪聚成一片汪洋。存在狀態是Florence Lam與黃淑賢共同關注的題目,然而各有不同的處理和展現。Florence 以行為演繹對時代的回應及與場地空間與自身情感對話,透過演出引起觀者思考;黃以身體介入影像和聲音記錄,發掘日常環境與內在的不協調和共振,透過錄像及聲音裝置,編織沉浸式的體驗,引發振盪。

展覽揭示城市中於過去、現在和未來所隱藏的面貌,讓觀眾置身於虛幻卻實在的環境中,徘徊在想像、當下情感與過去記憶的邊界,經歷不確定的心理和情感之起承與轉合。

黃亦是獨立平台藝們之創辦人,專門以錄像記錄香港藝術家的創作歷程。

周姍祐
姍祐於2019年完成澳洲皇家墨爾本理工大學藝術文學士課程。其作品形式抽象,以畫、文字、聲音和現成物作為主要探索媒介。作品內容表達對身份、自然、情感及物料本質的思考。在學期間至曾參與本地藝術聯展。2017年開始接觸聲音媒介,以實驗態度探尋「聽」的可能性。2018年獲邀參與由現在音樂與香港藝術中心合辦的《聲形》多聲道聲⾳藝術節。在2019年一次聯展中,與有多年經驗的舞者及唱作人互相交流並合作製造了一場融合視聽的即興演出。同年,獲選成為1a空間青年藝術家培育計劃其中一位參與藝術家。並獲邀請參與跟藝術或聲音媒介相關的聯展及計劃。

他的繪畫主題主要圍繞生活中的一些小片段,例如百合花的香氣,路邊的花草樹木以及在碼頭凝望海洋的時光。透過觀察日常生活中細碎的片段,他嘗試探索自身與周遭存在的各種事物之間的關係。藉此,他希望觀賞者對周遭習以為常之事物進行反思,從而勾畫出類似「似遠還近」的衝突感。

最近,他不停地探索新的創作物料,尤其對輕巧纖薄的物料感興趣。他認為製作輕盈的作品有助自己與社會各種壓力隔絕,將自己從煩囂當中抽離。在重覆浸透及風乾纖薄物料的過程需要心無雜念,無比專注,所以他的思緒能有片刻的休憩時間,讓自己靜下來。

【Of Transience, Encounters and Endless Enigma】
10 January 2020 – 9 February 2020, 1a space

1a space proudly presents Of Transience, Encounters and Endless Enigma, a contemporary art exhibition featuring four selected Hong Kong emerging artists from 1a space’s Emerging Tal-ents in Contemporary Art - Part 2: Young Artist Incubator Initiative (Hong Kong). It is an artist nurturing program while the selected artists joined regular meetings with professional art practitioners from 1a space’s board and curatorial panel for ideas and experiences exchange from September to December 2019. This exhibition sums up their learning experiences with 1a space.

Of Transience, Encounters and Endless Enigma is the world of city dwellers caught in between now and then, where they acquaint with strangeness and familiarity. In the immersive dream-like space, the audience linger in undefined psychic and emotional ruptures at the boundaries of the imagined, illusional and memories.

Intuon Chau and Ho Tze Chun Billy approach nature as a shared subject with their unique techniques and aesthetics. Chau's practice is a process of approaching materiality and spiritu-ality. She works with text, sound and installation, to reflect her emotions and thoughts to-wards the ocean. Ho relieves the annoyance from busy life with the weightlessness in the ma-terials, and his repetitive coloring process that turns paper into pieces of ocean with wave-like wrinkles.

Florence Lam and Elaine Wong shared a common interest in existential condition, yet reflect with different strategies. Through her opening performance and video installation, Lam works with wonder and magical thinking to fuse together current moral issues with child-like world views. Wong unwinds and entangles the manifolds of daily encounters and inner conditions. Her immersive audio-visual installations transduce the oscillations between body, material and space.

The exhibition includes paintings, sound, video installations and performances inside 1a space and the outdoor area, to create a dynamic territory that evolves in time that uncovers the obscure realities of the past, present and the future beneath the facade of urban exist-ence.

About the Artist (in alphabetical order)
Intuon Chau
Having received a BFA in fine art from RMIT University, and studied fine art at Hong Kong Art School. Intuon’s art practice is experiencing perceptions on the sense of seeing and listening, with paintings and sound compositions. The practice is a process of approaching materiality and spirituality through considering the subject of identity, nature, emotion and material. She mostly uses painting, text, sound, and found-object into her works, by expressing specific con-tents and perspectives to reflect on emotions and thoughts. She began exploring the possibili-ties of listening since 2017. In 2018, Intuon was invited to participant in “Sound Forms 2018”, a festival of multichannel sound which was co-presented by the Hong Kong Arts Centre and Contemporary Musiking’s (CMHK). After she graduated, in September 2019, she collaborated with two performers producing an improvisation with contemporary dance, traditional Chi-nese instrument, Nanyin, and sound. In the same year, she was selected to participate in the “Young Artist Incubator Initiative” art programme organised by 1a space. And she was invited to join the exhibitions and programs related to art, visual, and sound.

Ho Tze Chun Billy
Ho Tze Chun Billy is an artist and an art teacher. He established his own studio "Seika Studio" in 2017 and he is one of the co-founder.

Ho earned his Bachelor's degree in 2016 through the Hong Kong Baptist University, majoring in Visual Art. He obtained an Education Diploma in Visual Arts through the Hong Kong Baptist University the same year.

The theme of his painting is mainly about fragments of everyday life, such as fragrance of lil-ies, grasses along the side of the road and moments gazing at the sea next to piers. Through observing these ordinary pieces, He try to discover the relationship between him and the meaning of their existence and by such, he hope he could raise the audience's reflection for things that are long been accustomed, and bring out the contrast of something "so close and yet so far".

Recently, he keeps looking for new materials for his creations. He has a special bonding with materials that are light and thin. In his opinion, he believes a light artwork is able to isolate himself from the pressure among society, and so he can stay away from the hustle and bustle. During soaking and drying light and thin materials mentioned above, he needs to pay all his attention to his creations, and by such he can gain a recess for his mind to calm himself down.

Florence Lam
Florence Lam, born in 1992 in Vancouver, Canada and grew up in Hong Kong, is currently based between Hong Kong and Düsseldorf, Germany. Lam works with wonder and magical thinking to fuse together current moral issues with child-like world views through perfor-mance art, poetry, video and sound. She obtained her MA Fine Art from Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2017 and her BA Fine Art from Central Saint Martins in 2014.

Lam has performed around Europe and Asia, including Nanhai Gallery (Taipei, Taiwan 2019); Chiba Prefectural Museum of Art (Japan 2019), MACRO Testattio Mattatoio Art Museum (Rome, Italy 2018), Kling & Bang (Reykjavík, Iceland 2018), Manifesta 11 (Zürich, Switzerland 2016) etc. Art festivals include A!

With a background in painting, she explores and unveils the manifolds of daily encounters and inner conditions. She regards her practice as an investigation of the potentials of art beyond repre-sentation, its relation to sensation, documentation and experience. Her interest in the expe-riential quality of works leads her to engage in experiments with videography, sound and in-stallations.

Her works have been shown in Hong Kong and international art spaces; including the Hong Kong Heritage Museum (2018), Hong Kong Education Museum (2018), Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (2018), Oi! Street Art Space (2017), EXIS Korea (2017), and Poland Szczecin European Film Festival (2017).
