香港大學(港大)美術博物館將於2021年3月12日至2021年6月27日呈獻「藝創啟動」(UMAG_STArts)企劃的首場展覽《跨閾繪畫:伍龍威》。「藝創啟動」於2020年開始,目標是探索科學、技術和藝術之間的共生關係。

是次展覽展出伍龍威的「摺疊色彩」技術是從摺紙這種傳統藝術中取得靈感。他從看似單純而又充滿童趣的經歷中,創作出極為成熟的藝術品。巧手之下,這些來自藝術家童年時代的紙船,被轉化成一種獨特的視覺語彙。他的作品不僅是對他對自身文化根源和傳承的考察旅程,同時亦有力地表達出我們的存在經驗,邀請觀眾深入探究自身的記憶和感知。

伍龍威作品中的各種色調和視覺元素,象徵著他生命中汲取的各種經驗和意念。在荷馬史詩《奧德賽》中,奧德修斯飄洋過海的經歷代表著生命本質,而伍龍威《千帆風順》中的小船刻劃我們在生命旅程中的起伏。顧名思義,作品《常名》的靈感來自老子的《道德經》,老子在著作的開首闡明 :「道可道,非常道。名可名,非常名」。《常名》中的結代表著關乎人類存在的未解難題,以及我們對真理永無止境的追求。未解之謎往往比已解問題更為有趣,因為前者有著無限的可能性。

The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) will present "Painting Across The Threshold: Ng Lung Wai" from March 12, 2021 to June 27, 2021 as the first exhibition of the UMAG_STArts series. Launched in 2020, UMAG_STArts explores the symbiotic relationship between science, technology, and the arts.

Drawing inspiration from the traditional art of paper folding, this exhibition presents Ng Lung Wai’s ‘folding paint’ technique. Creating works of great sophistication from seemingly naive and childlike experiences, these vessels made from folded paint transform the artist’s childhood practice of folding paper boats into a highly personal visual language. More than an investigation into his own heritage and cultural roots, his works eloquently speak to our existential experiences, while simultaneously inviting us to delve into our respective memories and feelings.

The colours and visual elements incorporated by Ng contain the entirety of his lived experience. Similar to the message of Odysseus' seafaring expedition, Ng’s boats in "All the Best" depict our collective voyage through life’s ups and downs. As the title implies, "Chang Ming" is inspired by Laozi’s "Daodejing", which opens with the famous line ‘a way that can be followed is not a constant way, a name that can be named is not a constant name’. The knots in "Chang Ming" represent unanswered questions about human existence and our never-ending pursuit of the truth. An unanswered question is often more intriguing than an answered one, as the former never stops producing possibilities.
