In light of Li Huayi's solo exhibition Infinites Between Ink and Gold – Recent Works of Li Huayi, Kwai Fung Hin organized a premiere screening of Li's documentary and panel discussion on 5 December at the JC Cube in Tai Kwun.
We had the pleasure inviting former Chief Curator and Researcher of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, Mr. Szeto Yen-kit; Mr. Kim Yu, Head of Chinese Painting, Senior Vice President, International Specialist at Christie's; and Mr. Edward Fung, Curator of Li's current exhibition for their presence at the event. Moderated by Founder and Director of Kwai Fung Hin, Ms. Catherine Kwai, they exchanged thoughts in Li Huayi's artistic style, exploring the contemporary values and development of traditional ink painting.
"Infinities between Ink and Gold in Tai Kwun reflects the tension and balance between ink and gold from perspectives of installation, lighting, venue design, and film, at the same time letting the audience understand parts of my very own process of artistic creation and techniques.
As a matter of fact, artists are often unpredictable characters. They enjoy the liberty and freedom to be whimsical. They do whatever and whenever, and leave it for people to judge on their art. The most important thing is to being true to yourself. One of my recent greatest pleasures is getting to acquaint myself with Ms. Kwai and Mr. Fung. They appreciate, understand, and support me to a great extent, and encourages me to create my world freely. Their encouragement along the way has greatly increased my confidence and free play."
