“ONENESS: Painting Exhibition" by ArBlackChris, the resident artist at Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden, will be held from June to September this year. The exhibition showcases ArBlackChris's creations, which revolve around the themes of nature and wildlife, reminding viewers of the concept that humans and nature are interconnected.
During ArBlackChris's residency, the garden will also host the "Discover the Secrets of Water" fluid painting art workshop, in line with the exhibition's theme. Starting with the "source" of water, participants will be encouraged to imagine what water represents to them as they observe the flow of paint. They will be prompted to consider how we, as humans, receive nourishment from water and how we can learn from its nature to respond to various aspects of our daily lives. In addition, the workshop will encourage participants to reflect on the value of water resources and the importance of responsible management of them.
The rhythmic sound of water flowing also contributes to a sense of relaxation and healing. To enhance this experience, the workshop will incorporate sound meditation, utilising the natural soundscapes recorded by AK IN KK, local sound recordist, and impromptu healing instrument performances by the artist. Through this workshop, you are invited to immerse yourself in nature, observe the flow of water, and enjoy a moment of peace and enlightenment. Join us in this artful meditation to rediscover your inner self and connect with nature.
