Abstract

The sculptures displayed in this exhibition demonstrate knowledge transfer and cultural exchange between Aleksandar and Lingnan students in the process of creating site-specific works. They are largely made by timber from Chi Kee Sawmill & Timber, which was founded in North Point on Hong Kong Island in 1947, but later relocated to Chai Wan and then its current site in Kwu Tong, Sheung Shui in 1982. Unfortunately, this rare survivor of timber business has recently been identified as one of the first areas to be cleared for the controversial North East New Territories Development Plan launched by the HKSAR government. When Typhoon Mangkhut battered Hong Kong on 16 September 2018, it felled at least 17,000 trees. Aleksandar collected some broken branches of the fallen trees on Lingnan campus and in nearby area, allowing students to select this unique material for their projects. He and his students have injected new life to wasted materials and transformed them into beautiful sculptures which, in turn, provoke our curiosity and thinking.
