越後妻有大地藝術祭 2012
Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial 2012


越後妻有大地之藝術祭2012圓滿結束!在是次藝術祭中,藝術觸角企劃室在8/7至1/8期間,將三十八名小蛇隊義工從香港帶到十日町,並和各國的藝術家和義工攜手合作,希望能為是次藝術祭付出自己的汗水,為地區活化工作付出自己的力量。

Echigo-Tsumari Triennial 2012 was held successfully. During the time between  8th July and 1st August, Sense Art Studio and 38 Hong Kong Kohebi-Tai members came to Tokamachi, and worked with the artists and volunteers who came from different parts of the world. We all have the same goal -- to exert ourselves in this triennial to enhance the revitalizing project of Echigo-Tsumari region.

是次小蛇隊的工作包羅萬有:從木工、油漆,到清理、搬運,而至除草、設計,都是香港義工的工作範圍。每一天吃過美味的早餐後,便會舉行工作分配會議,義工便出發到各自的工作地點,努力工作直至黃昏。香港義工每天所付出的努力,都是為了使藝術節更盡善盡美,推動當地的活化。

Kohebi-Tai members had different kinds of work everyday, including carpentry, painting, cleaning, porterage, weeding, and designing. After having delicious breakfast made by local volunteers, work was distributed. Volunteers needed to visit different workplaces to finish their work until sunset. Every effort paid by the Hong Kong volunteers, was aimed to activate the fields and communication between people inside the region.

除了為藝術祭注入香港義工的力量以外,在藝術祭舉行的整個期間,藝術觸角企劃室還在東亞藝術村設立了資訊交流中心──龍茶廳。在龍茶廳裡,觀賞者可在品嚐茶香的同時,閒聊和交流資訊。在大地藝術節開幕當日,龍茶廳更有舞火龍環節。我們很榮幸邀請到吳江南師傅及其團隊,將香港薄扶林村的火龍帶到日本的津南,為當地村民送上祝福。是次舞火龍活動使中日的人民得以接觸,一同在鑼鼓聲中分享相聚的歡樂時刻。

Despite leading the Hong Kong Kohebi-Tai, Sense Art Studio also established the East Asia Art Centre – Dragon Café in Tsunan area. Visitors could gather and share ideas over a drink or a meal. Dragon Café also organized a performance of fire dragon in the local opening of the triennial. We are proud to invite Dragon Master, Mr. Ng Kong Lam and his team, to bring the fire dragon from Pokfulam village in Hong Kong to Uwano community in Japan, in order to offer blessings to the local residents. No matter they are Chinese or Japanese, people could get in touch with each other, and share the joyful moments together in the performance.
