21st September 2020 – (Hong Kong) Construction Industry Council – Zero Carbon Park (CIC-ZCP) proudly presents: “Art in Construction”, an exhibition that gathers 9 local artists and group to explore and showcase the connection and creativity between construction and art through various forms including sculptures, installations, paintings, photography, and workshops. Starting from today, “Art in Construction” is held at the CIC-ZCP in Kowloon Bay and supported by a free online virtual exhibition and a guided tour video on www.zcpart.org. Visitors are welcomed to sit and touch the various forms of art.
With painting, toys and building blocks, Artist LAM Tung-pang constructs his ideal city—complete with hills, people and high-rises—in the installation, Things Happened on the Island. He invites visitors to rearrange components to build the city together with him, a process evocative of the collaboration and rapport behind green communities and innovative technology in urban development. Sculptor MOK Yat-san often depicts polar bears, one of the victims of global warming, in various forms. The name of the art piece Beware of the P Bear is a humorous but thought-provoking reminder to bear in mind the severity of climate change. Referencing natural elements like water and wind, veteran Hong Kong Sculptor LEE Chin-fai, Danny has created Urban Waterscape, a group of outdoor sculptures that double as benches for public use.
