搬家可以令人产生强烈的情感 – 对新开始抱有的期望和兴奋,面对人生新的阶段或环境的挑战,对失去朋友和家人的恐惧,对改变和未来的焦虑。在应付转变带来的困难上,我们带着依附在旧居的记忆或经历,它在我们的潜意识中继续存在。交杂的感受有时让人吃不消。在我们最新的展览「迁居贰式」中,两位年轻的香港艺术家分享了他们有关搬家的经验。



熟悉的物件包含苦涩和甜蜜的记忆,每逢目睹实物或联想起来的一刻,便会让物主瞬间重回故地。艺术家吴喜敏透过各种物件,如铁闸门,床头小几和挂墙钟,将她与二十多年前称之为“家”的地方再联系起来。尽管目前居住在一个城市的大型屋邨,艺术家何幸儿经常在脑海闪过童年时在农村生活的片段。作品中描绘了这些回忆,而且都是宁静的。结合了富有想像力的插图,版画和剪贴,展览鼓励观众探索自己对地方或空间变化的反应。

Karin Weber Gallery is proud to present ‘Place To Place’, a showcase of two young Hong Kong artists using works on paper to explore themes of place changes and subsequent upheaval.

Moving homes can be an intensely emotional experience - the hope and excitement about a new beginning, the challenge of moving on to a new life-stage or environment, the fear of loss of
friends and family, the anxiety about change and the future. Adding to the difficulty of the transition are the nostalgic memories or experiences that we ‘inherit’ from our old homes that persist in lingering on in our consciousness. All these complex feelings can be overwhelming and sometimes traumatic to handle. In our latest exhibition – ‘Place to Place’ two young Hong Kong artists share their experiences of coping with relocation.

Objects contain memories bitter or sweet and can instantly transport a person back to living space and place. Using various objects such as a metal gate, a bedside cabinet and a clock, artist Carmen Ng re-connects with an apartment she used to call ‘home’ for over twenty years. Despite currently living in a housing estate in the city, artist June Ho often has flashbacks about her childhood days living in the countryside. She depicts these memories in her works, which reflect the tranquil landscapes witnessed daily in her neighbourhood. A combination of imaginative illustrations, etchings and paper-cuts, this gentle yet poignant exhibition encourages viewers to explore their own responses to changes of place or space.
