2009/10 'Exhibition of Secondary School Students' Creative Visual Arts Work

Of the approximately 1,700 entries submitted by 173 secondary schools, close to 500 works were selected by the organiser for the exhibition. Introducing “junior secondary” and “senior secondary” groups of participants for the first time, the exhibition features shortlisted works subdivided into four categories: “two-dimensional works”, “three-dimensional works”, “Chinese calligraphy and paintings”, and “media arts”.

The panel of adjudicators include Mr Laurence Tam Chi-shing (former Chief Curator, Hong Kong Museum of Art), Prof. Dominic Lam Man-kit (artist and Chairman of World Eye Organisation), Prof. Harold Mok Kar-leung (Chairman and Professor of the Department of Fine Arts, The Chinese University of Hong Kong) and Ms Leung Mee-ping (Assistant Professor of Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University).

The adjudicators selected the outstanding works from the 1,000-plus entries and gave invaluable comments on them.

For example, entitled “Live Life Every Moment”, an entry in the “Chinese calligraphy and paintings” category resorts to elaborate techniques of the old school to depict daily life in the modern world. The painting is regarded by the adjudicators as being quaintly elegant and yet original.

A video entry, on the other hand, depicts how a sleeper, surrounded by home appliances with alarm function, is finally woken up by being stung by a stapler. The story is told in such a lively and interesting way that the adjudicators were pleasantly surprised.
