Hong Kong GeoPark x UNESCO Hing Chun Yeuk: Seven Villages 慶春約七村繪畫


It is a project collaborated with Hong Kong Geopark, a Unesco site and the Agriculture Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD), HKSAR to create a mural painting at Kat O Story Room and a series of village paintings for book publication from June to November, 2019.

The project aims to document and educate the public about the cultures in seven old villages in rural Hong Kong. Several field trips were conducted with AFCD staffs beforehand to interview villagers and islanders. Sketches, sound recordings, photos and videos for were documented.

The paintings currently being installed in Siu Ying Story Room, which expect to be open to public in early 2021.

很榮幸今次可以為聯合國🇺🇳、香港地質公園委託繪畫香港古村系列:慶春約七村圖。這次繪畫工作為了紀錄香港消失中的村落及其文化,作出版、教育及傳承之用。在繪畫這次村落的工作中,Elaine在香港漁農自然護理處各位地質及植物專家的帶領下,實地考察不同村落、搜查資料,並與村民、村長交流。

今時今日許多村落都已荒廢,要透過畫筆重現村落50-60年代的風貌,需要依賴舊照片、村民的口述歷史和想像,遇到的挑戰不少。對於一名城市畫家來說,能夠深入探索到香港另外一面,從今天的瓦礫窺探昔日的村落繁榮,是一種特別的體驗。
