Public art project, "Lamma Mia", Zao Wu-ki@Villepin & in the studio: "In the Blue" with Teriver Cheu

2022-01-29
During the pandemic, nature has provided a sanctuary for many. Here in Hong Kong. country parks, mountains and the outlying islands have been full of people, especially during the weekend, taking a break from confinement and isolation. Lamma Island is also currently the backdrop for a public art project called “Lamma Mia”.

Working with oils, watercolours, and ink, Zao Wou-ki bridged Eastern and Western art traditions in his abstract compositions. In his own words: “Everybody is bound by a tradition. I am bound by two.” Zao moved to France in 1948 where he immersed himself in modernism, Impressionism and Expressionism.
In the 1970s, he returned to the brush and ink technique he’d first learned in China, although he still worked in the Western abstract tradition. You can see a selection of his works that illustrate this creative tension at the Villepin gallery in the exhibition “Zao Wou-Ki: The Eternal Return to China”.

Regular viewers of the show won’t need much introduction to our guest today. Guitarist and composer Teriver Cheung has been with us several times to perform, and to talk about music, ranging from jazz and improvisation to classical ensembles. A prolific cross-disciplinary musician, he has worked in many different genres and with a wide array of artists. But the past couple of years has brought him a life-changing challenge which has led him to take a new musical and spiritual path.
