Lingnan University’s Department of Visual Studies and Painting On and On co-presented an exhibition on “Intertextuality” on 8-21 May, with Mr Chow Chun-fai, the University’s Artist-in-Residence 2012/13, as the curator.
Painters Ivy Ma and Michelle Lee Ho-wing, as well as the 24 students in Mr Chow’s class during the residency, were invited to present their works responding to the theme of the exhibition.
Visitors to the exhibition were inspired to develop myriad interpretations and even interesting misinterpretations of the exhibits, not only by the vivid intertextuality shown in the artworks but also the strong tension generated among the artworks and the interchangeable identities of the artists as creators and spectators. By critiquing and appreciating the artworks in terms of the medium being used, time and space (including room for imagination, historical background of creation and the text), selection of materials and ways of presentation, visitors shed new light on intertextuality and artistic creation.
On 21 May, Mr Chow and the two artists Ivy Ma and Michelle Lee, together with co-curator Jeannie Wu, delivered a public lecture on “Intertextuality”, one of the main concepts developed in contemporary arts, to provide a background for the discussion of the artworks shown in the gallery, before the closing ceremony.
Graduated from the Department of Fine Arts, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, (BA 2003 and MFA 2006), Mr Chow is an active member of Fotanian Artist Village. Exhibitions of his works have been held in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Manchester, Munich, Salzburg, Vienna, Palermo, and Verona. He has now set up studios in Hong Kong and Beijing. Awards received include “Hong Kong Arts Centre 30th Anniversary Award Grand Prize” and the “Sovereign Asian Art Prize”.
