Above Second is proud to present: “PRIMARY”
Featuring Original Artworks by Graphic Airlines, Curated by May Wong
OPENING DATE: 15TH OCTOBER, 2010, TIME: 6PM – 10PM
EVENT DATE: 15TH OCTOBER, 2010 -17TH NOVEMBER, 2010
Above Second invites you to explore the visual playground of Primary. It consists of a series of multimedia two and three dimensional art that combines traditional art materials with found and ready-made objects. Outsider artists duo, Graphic Airlines, is one of Hong Kong’s finest local talents. To label them as a street artist, illustrator, educator, or product designer is just scratching the surface of their diverse talents. In every respect, they are creatives to their very core.
Primary features art ranging from neo-surrealistic ink drawings to a collection of amusingly peculiar assemblages made of erasers, wax, toys, and push pins. The collection welcomes the spectator to get lost within the intricacies of the work and ponder its inner qualifications. The artists are in love with the journey and process of their art and it shows within all of its varied details.
現代城市人追求科技進步, 生活壓縮到嚇死人, 目標為本, 效率為先, 對生活的觸感慚慚薄弱。究竟這人生旅程要追求什麼呢? 目的地也可能一樣, 還是應忘記目標，體驗過程才更快樂。
這次展覽以 ‘PRIMARY’ 為主題, 喚起一種 ‘喚醒’的感覺，不需要高級的技術, 沒有華麗的粉飾，不需精密的解析，更不是為買家而製作。 是最初，很粗糙，沒規範的。回想小時候接觸各樣東西的興奮，一些簡單東西也能成為玩具，只要運用想像力已能創造出自已的世界。
這展覽不只是一個畫展，可以說更像一個小朋友的玩耍間，我們利用一些簡單的素材，如無聊膠玩具，鉛筆, 擦紙膠, 鉛子筆, 圖釘等. 算再加上一些在街上撿回來的各種材料, 融合拼湊而成作品。創作過程可能比完成品更為滿足， “Enjoy the Voyage”，這亦是我們 Graphic Airlines 一貫理念。
