KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 30 (Bernama) -- The “Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival” (the Arts Festival), a three-year arts project organised by Tourism Commission and supported by Hong Kong Geopark and curated by One Bite Design Studio, is being held from Nov 16, 2022 to Jan 15, 2023.
To leverage the successful integration of arts with the island under the first edition the Yim Tin Tsai Arts Festival, the new edition of the Arts Festival will extend to the vast Sai Kung Hoi, with Yim Tin Tsai as the centre and reaching out to Sharp Island, Kau Sai Chau and High Island.
Hong Kong Tourism Board in a statement said through the Arts Festival, themed as “Joy Again, Isle”, visitors would meet, connect, experience the healing power of arts and nature through visits to the isles; and enjoy the fun of art tour through island hopping.
The focus of each year’s Arts Festival is on artworks creation, responding to topics such as villagers’ stories, rural-urban balance, nature conservation, cultural inheritance, religion and culture, supplemented by guided tours and programmes.
The Arts Festival offers a new perspective for visitors to explore the isles, a chance to explore and reflect on one’s relationship with the nature, and an experience of the unique Hong Kong culture of the isles.
Nine groups of local artists have been invited to create multidisciplinary nine artworks – six in Yim Tin Tsai and three in Sharp Island – and involve villagers during the process to reflect local life stories and the natural environment.
Artwork highlights include Homeward Voyage by Margaret Chu; Water Dragon by Joseph Chan; Moonrise in Daylight by Breakthrough Art Studio; and, A Grand Pineapple Bun Tour by Maoshan Connie and St. James’ Creation.
