10 YEARS OF ASP「ASP 十年展」

The ‘10 Years of ASP’ exhibition brings together artists who have received awards from soundpocket’s Artist Support Programme (ASP) over the past ten years. The sixteen participating artists work in different fields of art, and are at various stages and states of their lives and artistic careers. Some have created new works for this exhibition, while some have chosen to exhibit earlier works that have not previously been shown in Hong Kong. Not seeking for, nor emphasizing, “sound art” as the sole theme, the participating artists are not confined to creating based on sound and/or listening. Instead, it is hoped that the audience will be introduced to the entire diversity of their creation.

For the past ten years, ASP has been providing resource, artistic, and social support to the awarded artists. The programme motivates and assists awarded artists to engage in dialogues with their peers across multiple art forms, encouraging their continuing self-reflection, and sustaining an intellectually open environment where through the years awardees can form a learning community to share knowledge and create collectively. These activities carry on even after the completion of each artist’s year-long programme, so that deliberations may continue. We believe this kind of direct support keeps artists open in their vision, active in their practice, and their creation rooted in the culture of artistic creation in Hong Kong.

‘10 Years of ASP’ is not a retrospective but a prospective. First, it encourages the artists to participate in the exhibition in various roles and forms, then, the audience to reacquaint themselves with these artists through their artworks encompassing different media, such as installation, painting, video, photography, and even performance art; these artists who, in fact, apart from being artists, also play various roles in the art circle in support of each other.

Interviews with the participating artists will be published regularly over the course of the exhibition, providing additional angles from which to understand them.

「ASP 十年展」召集過往十屆「藝術家支援計劃」(ASP)之獲選藝術家參展。參與展覽的共十六位藝術家們來自不同藝術範疇,現正處於人生以及創作生涯的不同階段、狀態,他們有的為展覽創作了全新作品,也有些選擇展出在較早前創作、卻仍未有機會在香港展出的作品;展覽不尋求、不強調單以「聲音藝術」作主題,參與藝術家不必侷限於以聲音與聆聽作為創作起點,反而希望觀眾認識這群藝術家創作的多樣性。

在過去十年間,ASP為獲選藝術家提供物資、藝術及社交上的支援。計劃鼓勵並協助獲選藝術家與不同界別人士進行對話,鼓勵藝術家持續自我反省,並維持一個開放的知識環境,與歷屆獲選者建立學習群體,分享知識、集體創作。即使在年度計劃完結後,我們仍會繼續與藝術家進行這些活動,讓思辯能夠持續下去,因為我們相信這種直接的支援能協助藝術家開闊視野、積極實踐創作,並讓其創作紮根於香港的藝術創作文化之中。

「ASP十年展」不是回顧,是展望,是次展覽鼓勵藝術家嘗試以不同面貌、不同形式參展;鼓勵觀眾透過裝置、繪畫、錄像、攝影以至表演藝術等涉獵不同媒介的作品重新認識這群藝術家;事實上,他們除了藝術家的身份外,也同時在藝術圈中擔任不同角色,互相支援。

參展藝術家的專訪也將於展覽進行期間定時發佈,讓觀眾從不同角度認識參展藝術家。
