野生藝術節

Wild Art Festival

野生藝術節由藝術團體FAAS Spaceless發起,是一個旨在推廣實驗性公共藝術創作的搖籃及平台。始於2017年FAAS Spaceless以公開招募作品和創作計劃的形式,邀請香港中文大學藝術系同學在展覽場地以外的校園空間進行創作。野生藝術節以游擊戰的方式挑戰學校死板的空間政策和規條,發掘并思考公共空間、閒置空間的可能性,企圖打開公眾對公共空間的想象。

2019年FAAS Spaceless更與碧波押合作,將野生藝術節帶出校園,走入社區,直面香港藝術業界所面對著更加嚴峻的空間、發展和創作自由問題。沿用游擊的戰略,策動「都市針灸( Urban acupuncture)」型的藝術節,以「徵集」加「邀請」的方式,在碧波押視藝空間及其周邊地區展開一系列的創作、表演或活動。


Started in 2017, the Wild Art Festival was initiated to encourage students to present work in the public space other than white-cube space. It has served as a platform to provide learning opportunities to discover the possibility of open space. With workshops, seminars, and sharing, we reflect on the confronting challenges encountered in art in public space and challenge the conservative concept or ideas about curation.

野生藝術節2019

社區藝術空間碧波押所在的藝術場地因未能滿足娛樂牌照要求,面臨終止合約的末途。空間政策和娛樂牌照法例一直是中小藝團發展的一個限制,也是香港藝術自由和文化生態的一個困境。因此我們與碧波押合作,通過社交平台公開招募作品,希望用創作娛樂牌照問題、社區公共空間或香港藝術發展現況作回應,亦可純粹實驗、探索城市空間或是製造對話的平台。因而今次野生藝術節從中大校園走出油麻地,在碧波押及其周邊地區展開為期20日的創作、表演和活動。第三屆的主題為「哪有一點藝術娛樂牌照」

Despite a larger scale of Hong Kong's exhibitions, there seem to be no room for art. It is an awakening call when Green Wave Art, a community art space in Hong Kong, was not able to renew the license as a public entertainment venue. Space policy and legislation have always been a restriction for the development of small and medium-sized arts space, artistic freedom, and cultural ecology in Hong Kong. We opened call for works or ideas in response to issue related to entertainment licenses, community public space, and exploration of urban space.

空間問題以外,藝術教育的評價和評分機制也框限了同學的創作,在「功課」和「創作」間難以找回最初藝術帶給我們的快樂。因此希望可以藉由野生藝術節這個開放的平台,重新尋找和思考藝術創作的價值以及最初的赤子之心,第二屆的主題因而定為「哪有一點藝術快樂」。

In addition to space issues, the evaluation and grading mechanism of art education are limiting our peer schoolmates. It is hoped that, through the open platform of the Wild Art Festival, we can search for and think about the meaning of artistic creation. "How can there be a little artistic happiness?"

野生藝術節2017

對於校園內的展覽空間及其運作機制的不滿和質疑乃是我們展開這個計劃的初衷,其一藝術系內的展覽空間/機會並不足夠,另外這些展覽空間的機制、條款和要求對於展覽的媒介和設置有很大的限制,因此希望做一個走出這些框條之外的藝術節,也同時作為回應我們自身對於空間上的疑問和想法。因此野生藝術節應運而生,第一屆的主題為「哪有一點藝術空間」。

Dissatisfaction and doubts about the exhibition space and its operating mechanism in the university were our intention to start the Wild Art Festival. In addition, the system, terms, and requirements of the exhibition space in university are very limited, that we hope the festival will go beyond these frameworks and questions ideas about space. Therefore, the Wild Art Festival came into being with the theme: "Where there is a little art space".
