100 ft PARK is pleased to present the exhibition “Crafting Sky” from 24 May to 16 June 2013. On display is a set of installation work co-created by artist Sim Chan and architect Stanley Siu. As a continuance of the SimKites Series, Sim Chan collaborates with Stanley Siu to explore new perspectives in seeing three dimensional spaces and attempt to break through the limitations of two dimensional paintings, integrating architectural design and art creation to experiment new angles in understanding and perceiving space and volume.

 

Works of Sim Chan have been full of architectural elements, from the source of inspiration to the composition of his works, as well as the hand-made skyline silhouette wooden mounts. All these involve accurate calculation and knowledge in geometry which allow Sim to depict the ever-changing sky in a mathematically logic way. Stanley Siu has found the common grounds between art and architecture in Sim’s works – the urban context, massing in architecture, city’s boundary and skyline. With the application of computer modeling programme, Stanley designed three dimensional forms of irregular shapes for Sim’s paintings. The work of a set of three on display, in cubic meter as their volume unit, depicts the sky and clouds in different time of a day. Details of architecture are not presented but only the contour is delineated. The sky is carried, sectioned and shaped. Under different viewing angles, the contour of the three dimensional work and the lines in the painting work together and subtly lead to new possibilities in reading two dimensional surfaces. Viewers are inspired to observe and understand space from various points of view.

 

Sim Chan graduated from Hong Kong Art School majoring in Painting. He was selected as one of the nominees for the Sovereign Asian Art Prize in 2011. He was awarded “40under40” global creative talent by Perspective Magazine in 2013. Sim’s works have been exhibited widely in Hong Kong and Asia. Recently, he was commissioned to create a public art installation at the Jockey Club Atrium of the Hong Kong Arts Centre. Stanley Siu grew up and studied in New Zealand and graduated from Department of Architecture. He returned to Hong Kong after graduation and has ben practicing in architectural design. Participated projects are in Hong Kong and China. Stanley has a great interest in Arts and hopes to connect art with architecture. He participated as a team in 2011 – 2012 Hong Kong & Shenzhen Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism / Architecture showing the work Sugar Treasure.

百呎公園將於2013年5月24日至6月16日舉行展覽《見・觸・天・空》,展出藝術家陳閃與建築師蕭國健共同創作的裝置藝術作品。承接陳閃的SimKites 風箏系列,是次創作與蕭國健一同探索三維空間的新視點,突破繪畫二維空間的限制,結合建築設計和藝術創作,嘗試帶給觀眾新的角度理解及思考空間和體量。

 

陳閃過往的作品從靈感、構圖至天空剪影的手製木畫框,都富有極濃的建築原素,當中涉及精準的計算和對幾何學的理解,數理化地描繪本是無定的天空。蕭國健在陳閃的作品中看到很多藝術與建築設計的共同語言,如城市肌理、物質體量、城市邊界和天際線,透過應用建築設計的電腦模擬軟件,為陳閃的畫作設計出不規則的立體框架。展出的一組三件作品以立方米體積為單位,描繪了不同時分的天際景觀與雲霞。沒有建築物實體的描寫,只留下城市建築的外形線,以承載、切割和塑造天空。三維作品的輪廓線與構圖中的線條,在不同的視點下,巧妙地帶出更多閱讀二維平面的可能性,引領觀眾以多角度觀察,啟發對空間的想像。

 

陳閃畢業於香港藝術學院, 主修繪畫。於2011年入選傑出亞洲藝術獎,2013年被透視雜誌選為 「40 under 40」,全球40位40歲以下以的創作驕子。陳閃的作品曾在香港及亞洲等地的展覽展出,最近亦被邀於香港藝術中心賽馬會展廊製作公共藝術裝置作品。蕭國健於新西蘭成長,於當地建築系畢業。畢業後回港執業,從事建築設計,參與的項目位於香港和中國。蕭國健對藝術有濃厚興趣,希望能拉近藝術與建築之間的距離。他以團隊身份參與2011 – 2012 香港深圳城市建築雙城雙年展,展出作品「糖寶圖」。
