社區達人系列 第2講 : 百論不如一戰—-黃正發師傅

時間: 晚上6時半至8時
地點: 九龍塘禧福道5號香港浸會大學視藝及傳理大樓2樓204室

一件成功的藝術作品,除了有出色的構思和概念,還需要實踐。正如賦有多年佈展經驗的黃正發師傅所說, 要能夠「做」出來和展示於人前。幫助藝術創作者解決手藝技術和佈展問題正正是阿發師傅的工作。這位原本從事亞克力膠片組件工作的師傅級工匠,從自學部件技術至延伸到替創作人執行並完善作品,遇到的問題不少於創作者本身。「百論不如一戰」的做事理念,讓他成為創意工業圈的技藝達人。

作為「社區達人講座系列」的第二講,阿發師傅將於席上與眾人分享成為藝術創作人背後之得力戰友的種種經歷,並會展示一些具代表性的項目,及如何與創作人共同進退之經驗,成為真正的展覽設計達人。

現代化烏托邦是否建立在對西方概念的反復轉譯基礎之上?
語言系統的改變如何影響今日社會建構?

我感興趣於「誤譯」與「錯位」的概念與全球化進程的困境的關係。受達達主義的隨機性和烏力波對語言運用的雙重影響,我從影響中國對現代性和政治理想的認知和內化的音樂歌詞、書籍、文章、政治格言和廣告中挪用文本, 並使用谷歌在線翻譯來分析政治中的語言和圖像之間的關係。當所有語境從翻譯語料庫系統消失,這些語句就像我們這個荒謬時代的詩歌。

「社區達人」講座系列一 : 渠王

日期:29/04/2015 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
地點:香港浸會大學林護國際會議中心211室 (九龍塘聯福道55號)
*講座以粵語進行。

不管在大街小巷的斜坡、燈柱或渠蓋,你定必見過「渠王 通渠免棚92263203」的手寫「廣告塗鴉」。與其他水電維修廣告不同,渠王的手寫字體整齊一致,別樹風格。他早期為了擴闊客源,除在報章刊登分類廣告外,亦製作廣告貼紙,專門貼在大廈電梯內,可惜效果強差人意。其後把心一橫,索性以手寫形式在牆上寫下精簡的聯絡方法。自此渠王便是名副其實的「去到邊,寫到邊」。騎著電單車,一枝筆一筒油,塗塗寫寫。

渠王的通渠廣告遍佈城市每一個角落,數量已然成為街頭藝術。當初的無心插柳,成為構成今天社區風景的重要元素,渠王本人如何看待此一現象? 渠王又累積了無人知的冷知識?

After Life: Public Lecture by Claudia Terstappen

*講座以英語進行。
Date: 24 November 2015
Time: 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Venue: WLB 104, Lam Woo International Conference Centre, Hong Kong Baptist University, Kowloon Tong

Over the past 20 years Claudia Terstappen’s research has concentrated on knowledge systems and how knowledge is communicated in different times, countries and cultures. She has focused on beliefs, forms of worship and rituals as they are part of our daily experience in both our local and global environments.
 
She has particularly focused on religious iconography, objects and ceremonies because they give meaning and shape to suffering and deep emotional pain that words fail to pin down. They are witnesses to human emotion that struggles to fit into a world that is dominated by science, technology and logic.
 
In order to visit religious sites, interview people and experience rituals in regional and remote areas, she has lived, worked and travelled in Brazil, Columbia, Iceland, Spain, France, Japan, North America and Australia. The range of cultural differences and similarities I encountered were often surprising.
 
These experiences have manifested themselves in large-scale photographic works, sculptures, installations and more recently videos. By applying different media and materials to my works, she offers different temporalities and suggest alternative ways of experiencing time, culture and place. Between 2010 and 2014 she focused on death rituals including those that involve live animals. In addition to traditional bullfights in Spain, I also looked at animals that were sacrificed for science, and animals killed on our roads as a result of our daily work rituals.
