「紙上寶石」藏書票/版晝印製體驗
“Gems on Paper” Ex-Libris
Printmaking Experiences
藏書票原名拉丁語 “Ex Libris”, 意謂「來自(我的)圖書館」。具體起源不詳,一般認為源自十五世紀歐洲,最初是貴族印其族徽貼書內以標誌其對書本的擁有,後來發展為一種版畫藝術,並為集藝者收藏。
 
今年書展,我們特別邀請了版畫及雕塑家黃偉麟(太歲),為新書《永續藝術在當下》和《環球聖經譯本》創作了兩個系列的藏書票和版畫,大象老師亦以篆隸書寫聖經金句,供諸同好。大家可以親身為自己的心愛圖書,印製藏書票。

黃偉麟(太歲)創作的藏書票版畫,多次入選全國和國際版畫展。2022年他的再造紙雕塑獲盧森堡藝術獎表揚。2016年他在加拿大溫哥華用回收糖果包裝創作的大型公共雕塑,創下了健力士世界記錄。他受委約的動漫雕塑作品在世界各地獲私人收藏。
Ex libris, or bookplates, are decorative prints used to mark ownership of books. Originally emerging within the private libraries of the Enlightenment, they have developed from stamps of family emblems to a printmaking art in their own right, collected by museums and art collectors.
 
In celebration of our booth, we have commissioned award-winning artist Dio Wong to create a series of ex libris inspired by our book Sustainability Art Now and the Global Bible Translation. Everyone can create their own bookplate for their favourite books!

Dio Wong is a celebrated print and sculpture artist based in Hong Kong. In 2022, his recycled paper statues were awarded a commendation by the Luxembourg Art Prize for its artistic achievement.

What is sustainability? How does it differ from environmental protection?
What is sustainability art?

Sustainability Art Now uncovers these vital questions and more. Reflecting on Artists Co-op's pioneering Sustainability Art Hub’s years of place making, artist residencies, exhibitions, and community programmes, our book sets forth a vision of compassion, empowerment, healing, and connection, benefiting us in the present as much as future generations. Accounts from artists, art critics, administrators, and participants alike form a bilingual record of Hong Kong’s first project of this kind—a place for all and a force for healing through the medium of sustainability art.

Join us in celebrating a pioneering fusion of art and sustainability.

每月定期舉行藝術研討會或講座,提供平台予藝術家聚首交流,分享創作,激發靈感。過往曾擔任交流/研討會主持的藝術家和創作人包括:傅世亨、文昌瑩、黎振寧、李慧嫻等。
