29 April 2021

The Sun Museum, funded by the Simon Suen Foundation, Honorary Permanent President of the HKBU Foundation, is holding two exhibitions entitled “The Place: Fantasia of Scenery by Tang Ying Chi” and “The Phase: Hong Kong Contemporary Ceramics”.

The Opening Ceremony was held on 29 April 2021. Officiating guests included Professor Kao May Ching, former Chair Professor of the Department of Fine Arts of The Chinese University of Hong Kong; Dr. Simon Suen, BBS, JP, and Ms. Chloe Suen, Founding Chairman and Chair respectively of the Simon Suen Foundation; and Mr. Yeung Chun Tong, Director of the Sun Museum. On this special occasion, officiating guests commemorated the 6th anniversary of the Sun Museum. Mrs. Lily Chan, Director of University Advancement and Secretary-General of the HKBU Foundation, attended the ceremony on behalf of the University. 

Tang Ying Chi is a renowned Hong Kong artist. This exhibition showcases 30 pieces of Tang’s recent paintings, including her latest series “The Place” in 2020, which refers to the pursuit of an ideal world by the ancient Chinese in landscape paintings. Blending Chinese and Western painting materials, she uses ink to depict mountains as well as trees, and bright coloured blocks to render scenery textures. By looking at Tang’s paintings, viewers are transported to her imaginary landscapes and invited to envision the world they yearn for.

“The Phase: Hong Kong Contemporary Ceramics” features the recent works of 26 artists of the Contemporary Ceramic Society (H.K.). Each work is inspired by a Chinese antique, such as ancient ceramics, bronze ware, ink painting, and even poetry, in response to the contemporary value and inheritance of traditional craftsmanship.

The public can enjoy free admission by appointment and the exhibition will be held until 10 July 2021. Please click here for details.
