17 Year One students of the Master of Arts in Fine Arts programme, including Lee Kwun Leung Vincent, Jean Tsoi, Wong Chun Yan Esther, Tezuka Ng, Man Chin Hui, Kam Cheuk Lam Lum, Irene Law, Anne Chow, Helen Wai Chi PANG, Lau Siu San, Peggy Chan Sze Wan, Janice Wong Yuen Yee, Limin Xu, Alice Ieong, Jeff Cheng Tsz Fung, Iris Wong and Frank Freeman will also exhibit their learning outcomes in the first-year study of the programme.
The exhibition, titled ‘Átopos’, represents the remarkable individuality and temperament of these 17 students and their experiences. The uniqueness of each student will indeed give remarkable impacts on each of them and inspirations for their long-term art pursuits. Átopos － Socrates’ enemy of debates described him in this way: strange, absurd, and difficult to be categorized. Roland Barthes adopted this term in one of his great works, Fragments d’un discours amoureux, to describe a relationship of a couple, in which your companion is always unique.
Probably the encounter of these 17 students is also like Átopos, which is hardly categorized nor comparable. During the process of their artistic explorations, they bear a kind of competitive but precautious mindset, whereas they undergo a complementary kind of mutual nourishment. Their relation is rational, as well as an indescribable spiritual feeling.
