Ceramic art seeks balance in life
"Look for Equilibrium - Works by Rachel Cheung", part of the Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition 2003, will run from tomorrow (December 4) to December 15 at Exhibition Galleries 4 and 5 of the Hong Kong Central Library.
The exhibition communicates the concept of "equilibrium" in a direct and simple manner through a series of ceramic works.
"Equilibrium" has long been a subject of interest to Rachel Cheung. A confrontation with a colleague years ago inspired the artist to explore the concept of "equilibrium" through artistic creation with her favourite medium - ceramics.
Cheung's repeated attempts to present a state of "equilibrium" have not only made her an accomplished ceramics artist, but, she says, they have also helped in her dealings with people.
While clay is Cheung's main medium, she uses other materials, and varied presentations of form and space in her exhibits, thus presenting the audience with a much broader perspective.
The exhibition, the seventh programme of the Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme, is organised by the Art Promotion Office (APO) of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. The scheme is also a partnership project with the Mass Transit Railway Corporation, aiming to promote local visual art to the general public.
Free guided tours will be offered to the public and school groups. For information, please contact the Community Art Team of the APO on 3101 2712 or 3101 2713. To learn more about the artist and her work, visit the website, http://www.artistneighbourhood.info.com
The Hong Kong Central Library is located at 66 Causeway Road, Causeway Bay. It is open daily from 10am to 8pm.
