Organized by the House of Hong Kong Literature and funded by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, the second "Hong Kong Literature Season" is launched during October to December 2016. The theme of this year's Hong Kong Literature Season is “Literature love/very/good to Nature". The exploration of natural scenery, as well as living feelings, has always been a source of inspiration for literary and creation. The isolation and connection among the islands can also serve as a metaphor for art. The Hong Kong landscape is very unique, island is one of the local characteristics. The Hong Kong Literature Season will select six islands as the study objects. Six pairs of writers and visual artists will be invited to collaborate for cross-media dialogues in the way of literature and visual arts creation in order to show the multi-sensory relationship between the nature, literature and visual art.
The exhibition will be held from 12th Nov to 23rd Dec in 1a space. The exhibition will show different dimensions of history, tourism, living, humanities, natural wilderness and ecological species of the islands. The islands became the junctions of writers and artists. They could explored the possibility of cross/multi-disciplinary dialogue through the islands. The possibility of dialogue is the existence of differences. The differences could cause infinite creations and changes, and will always lead to the process of “becoming” where the dialectics of concept, history and reality will be emerged. The island is not the end to reach, is just the beginning.
