About the Exhibition

 

Students in a drawing class were asked the question: ‘What is abstraction?’

Spending some time in the Au Shue Hung Memorial Library, they look for things that attract them: be the books, space, lighting, texture or the sound; then extract, isolate and maximise. Afterwards, they express their takes through a series of sketches.

26 sketchbooks are presented, using mediums from pencil, charcoal, watercolours, acrylics and ink. Through the lens of abstraction, they visualise their versions of a familiar place, providing other angles to look at the library.

「抽象是甚麼?」

學生來到圖書館裏尋找答案:除了在書本上,還從空間、燈光、質感和聲音的在場體驗,通過觀察和想象描繪出他們對抽象的理解。

是次展覽展出26份素描作品,當中包括鉛筆、碳筆、水彩、塑膠彩和水墨等媒介。作品以小書的形式呈現各人對圖書館的獨特印象,並邀請觀眾用不一樣的角度去感受習以為常的一個地方。
