" Shape & Consciousness" call for entries

The initial concept of this exhibition is "shaping" and "stream of consciousness", aimed at exploring the relationship between form and content in contemporary art, and how to express and convey the concept of stream of consciousness through art. Through the artist's creation, the audience will be presented with a special emotional journey. This can be consciousness or different specific shapes. It can also be an exploration of the meaning of life or philosophical thinking, such as the frustration and attitude in life experience, presenting deeper insights into the philosophy of life through artwork.

Artists will use different media, such as painting, sculpture, photography, and video, to present their understanding and expression of "shaping" and "stream of consciousness". If you have narrative or commemorative artwork-related stories, you are welcome to submit them for consideration.

Artists interested in participating in the exhibition can apply for free during the public recruitment period. After selection, shortlisted artists need to pay an exhibition fee of HK$500 per artwork. For details, please refer to the notes in the application form.

Piccinini's works, with their extreme realism and surreal style, often draw from art historical forms and explore various positive and negative "consequences."

"Hope" raises important questions about history, progress, and the essence of technology, encouraging contemplation on how we can come together with warmth, care, and mutual love to live harmoniously in the world.

In addition to Fan Chun's artistic perspective on the stream of consciousness art movement, Professor Liu highlighted its cultural interpretations from the realms of literature and philosophy. During the event, Professor Liu emphasized the importance of putting aside mobile phones in order to stay true to one's original intentions.

MONA, A Museum of Old and New Art Full of Pleasant Surprises and Shocks


Recently, during my business trip to Australia, I visited an art museum in Tasmania in my spare time - MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art. It is the largest private art museum in Australia, founded by millionaire David Walsh, with unconventional and breakthrough ideas, and has been hailed as "a subversive Disneyland for adults".

Before my departure to Australia, I have already read the fascinating introduction on the website of MONA. I was so looking forward to visiting the museum.  It is mentioned in the introduction that their definition of MONA, a museum of old and new art, is constantly changing, it can be a very expensive kitchen, potato chip vendor, etc. It is also said that the museum once kept a peacock, but it kept attacking blue cars. Finally MONA had to relocate the peacock to a farm. This funny introduction made me even more curious, and I couldn’t wait to see this museum.

As soon as I arrived, I was totally enthralled by the entire building of the museum, which itself is a great piece of art. There are so many works of art displayed in the museum.  It is impossible to believe that they are owned by one person. The artworks are integrated into the interior design of the museum, and the combination formed an unconventional artwork. This kind of visual enjoyment that is not limited to a single piece of art, but can be appreciated in conjunction with multiple pieces of art, is all-encompassing here.

I highly recommend that if you travel to Tasmania, Australia, you must visit MONA. Even people who are not really interested in art will be attracted by the playful side of the museum! The museum regularly holds different special exhibitions.  Please go to the official MONA website to check out the special exhibition schedules!

The colour of the sky are related to the electromagnetic radiation that's given off by the sun. All of  light that can be seen by human eyes, red has the longest wavelength, while blue and violet have the shortest wavelength. When the sun sets and at dusk the sun disappears on the horizon, red light with a longer wavelength will shine farther away, so we can see pink or red sunsets with our human eyes. The light is reflected, and the snow becomes a soft pink.
