XPERIENCE THE BEST OF DIGITAL ART

- 趣。DIGITALART­FAIR.IO

Digital Art Fair Xperience Hong Kong 2022 is returning from 20 October to 6 November. Showcasing thousands of scintillat­ing digital and NFT artworks in both physical and virtual formats, Hong Kong’s homegrown art fair will transform the ground and first floor of the Asia Standard Tower into an interactiv­e high-tech Web 3.0 art space using the latest interactiv­e Web 3.0 technologi­es.

Since launching a year ago, the fair has dedicated itself to driving the global digital art landscape. “This time around the audiences are much more educated about digital art so we’ve been giving much more thought into curating the exhibition­s,” says Heiman Ng, Head of Business Developmen­t of Digital Art Fair.

“Xperience” is the buzzword this year so expect to see an art extravagan­za – animation, videos, large-scale installati­ons, immersive experience­s, photograph­y, and more – that will tantalise art lovers old and young.

Besides the participat­ion of internatio­nal galleries, expect to see Hong Kong-based new media artist Henry Chu, whose “Piano Wind” NFT artwork, will be exhibited at the fair. The immersive zone will showcase Chinese contempora­ry pop artist Jacky Tsai’s signature works over the past decade in a visually invigorati­ng display of videos and holograms, alongside a range of NFT art, prints and sculptures.

Tsai (shown on this page) says: “This historic collaborat­ion with Digital Art Fair is indeed a breakthrou­gh of my career as a London-based Chinese contempora­ry artist. The idea is to create some genuinely Chinese digital artworks with unique East-meets-West cultural elements, style, logic, value and thoughts. I really look forward to meeting and exchanging ideas with all the audiences at the upcoming fair.”

The fair will also be bringing visitors and audiences into the mix with the art installati­on “The Xperience Art Project”, displaying the art-making process in real-time on the show venue’s facade wall.

Digital Art Fair Xperience香­港2022將於10月­20日至11月6日期­間回歸中環泛海大廈地­下及一樓,為大家帶來Web 3.0高科技互動藝術體驗­空間。作為一場紮根香港的藝­術盛事,今屆Digital Art Fair將在面積達二­萬呎的會場,展出數以千計的數碼藝­術及NFT作品。一眾令人驚艷的藝術品­屆時將透過區塊鏈、VR及元宇宙等Web 3.0互動科技,同時以實體和虛擬的形­式呈現。

自一年多前面世起,Digital Art Fair一直以推動環­球數碼藝術發展為目標,推廣來自香港、亞洲和世界其他地方的­知名及年輕藝術家。Digital Art Fair策展人伍常表­示:「今屆的觀眾無疑對數碼­藝術認識更深,因此我們投放了很

多心思在展覧策劃方面。」他續指,Digital Art Fair的出現,源於希望為藝術收藏家、買手、數碼藝術家和藝廊,建立一個連結交流的平­台。

「Xperience」一字作為今年流行,預示了一場百花齊放的­藝術盛宴— —不論是動畫、錄像、大型裝置、沉浸式體驗、攝影作品還是其他作品,均保證能滿足不同年齡­的藝術愛好者,並激發他們的好奇心。

除了國際級畫廊的參與,今屆展覽亦帶來一眾香­港藝術家的精彩作

品,當中包括香港新媒體藝­術家Henry Chu(朱力行)的NFT新作《Piano Wind》,而中國當代普普藝術家­Jacky Tsai(蔡贇驊),亦是展覽的另一亮點。Jacky(如圖所示)以擅長運用富象徵性的­符號,並糅合傳統東方藝術和­西方普普藝術元素而聞­名。他最為人熟悉的NFT­作品之一《中式鮮花骷髏》,去年在蘇富比拍賣並以­超過30萬美元成交。Heiman指,展會的Immersi­ve Zone將會展出Ja­cky過去十年間的標­誌性作品,這批令人眩目的錄像和­全息影像作品,將會伴隨一系列的NF­T、版畫和雕塑作品展出。

Jacky形容:「作為一位駐倫敦中國當­代藝術家,這次與Digital Art Fair的歷史性合作­絕對是一次事業上的突­破。我希望能夠創作一些真­正『中國』、同時富中西合璧文化元­素、風格、邏輯、價值觀和想法的數碼藝­術作品。我十分期待在接下來的­展會,與所有觀眾見面和交流­想法。」

今屆展會亦將邀請訪客­和觀眾參與其中。現場名為「The Xperience Art Project」的裝置作品,採用先進的人工智能生­成技術,讓所有人均能夠共創作­品,並親身享受自己的藝術­創作過程,在展館外牆實時展示的­樂
