Ceramicist moulds everyday reality to her purposes

**************************************************



To bring art to daily life -- that is the mission of the Art Promotion Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and its Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme II.

Moulding World - Ceramic Works by Annie Wan, the latest exhibition presented under the scheme, shows how a ceramicist uses mould-making and slip casting to reproduce everyday reality and make a ceramic diary of her own.

The exhibition will visit two venues. From May 8 to May 22, it can be seen at the Exhibition Hall of the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre, 7A Kennedy Road, Central, Hong Kong. The centre is open daily from 10am to 9pm and closed on Tuesdays.

From June 1 to July 3, the exhibition takes up residence at the Ko Shan Theatre, 77 Ko Shan Road, Hung Hom, Kowloon, open daily from 9am to 11pm.

Admission is free.

Annie Wan has long pondered the essence of such opposites as positive and negative, concave and convex, virtual and real, and ceramic moulding is her preferred method of interpretation. From the interplay between replicas and her memories of real objects emerges an ambivalence about what is true and what is false.

Wan loves to experience, observe and record by heart. Her ceramic works are deceptively simple but full of pleasant surprises for the observer.

A good example is her Drawings on a Japanese Comic Book. It has special significance for Wan since the strokes on the cover of the ceramic book were made by her mother and her three children.

And the work Ripples of Raindrops will not just inspire the observer to think about the beauty of raindrops, but also to experience their comforting sound.

Another of Wan's trademarks is works of different sizes arranged in series. Such is the case with To Demonstrate the Evolution of Spoon from Hand, which depicts the progressive development of a spoon, starting from the human palm.

Moulding World - Ceramic Works by Annie Wan is the fourth solo exhibition under the Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme II. It is organised by the Art Promotion Office in partnership with the Mass Transit Railway Corporation with the aim of promoting local visual arts.

Free guided tours are available for groups and schools. For information call the Community Art Team of the Art Promotion Office on 3101 2712 or 3101 2713.
