    Artist Statement:
    “&” indicates somewhere in between. We use “&” to symbolize how love evades any simple definition, as well as its nature of connection. Through love individuals are bonded together. During the process they are impacted by both sweetness and bitterness, and transform into another being they would never thought of. In this exhibition, 4 artists present how they are affected by different experiences in relationships, and how these art pieces represent their notion of love.

    內容簡介:
    武術是中國文化不可或缺的一環,武術的發展也是社會發展的側面。現時市面上的香港武術著作,大多聚焦武術本身的承傳與發展,鮮有從社會發展角度出發論述香港武術史。本書探析武術與香港社會發展的互動關係:一方面揭示轉變中的社會對武術帶來的衝擊,另一方面也探析武術對香港社會的影響。隨著社會的發,傳統武術已漸漸融入一般市民生活,發展成今天老幼咸宜、有益身心的體育運動。

    是次講座,特別介紹及討論新著「止戈為武:中華武術在香江」。本書以嶄新角度,介紹各門派宗師及歷史、武術宗師如何在港謀生,以至武館是一個怎樣的地方,展現武術與香港社會的互動關係...
