What will happen to Hong Kong artists and bird watching enthusiasts walking together to promote sustainable living?
In January 2018, Art Home and the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society jointly organized the "Fish Pond Yuanye Art Festival 2018" for the first time, starting from Tai Sang Wai, Yuen Long, through artist residency, outdoor art exhibitions, ecological guided tours, workshops, etc. Activities, integrating issues related to art and ecological conservation, and experiencing with the public what is meant by "sustainable life", are you there?
During the two-day art festival, the artist explored Tai Sang Wai with sculptures, clay pottery puppets, fishing nets, singing, and videos. The villagers responded with fragrant cane sugar rice cakes and fish porridge, accompanied by a series of public workshops. Looking at the sunset in the fish pond, you who are in the middle feel that you are still unfulfilled?
Or did you miss the festival and missed it?
It doesn't matter! In order to let the public have a deeper understanding of the creation and philosophy of "Fish Pond Yuanye Art Festival 2018", we will bring the works and documentation to JCCAC from March to April 2018, whether you know Taishengwei or Yutang before or not. Ecology, bird watching, art home, as long as you are interested in sustainable development and art, you are welcome to watch and think slowly.
