《光脫脫 Stripped Lights》將展出十三位年輕藝術家的近作，展覽名稱取其坦蕩蕩地表露自己的意思。參展藝術家近年各人從不同方向發展，有工作的、進修的、放棄藝術的，甚麼情況都有。要面對各種生活問題很多時令藝術家質疑藝術的意義，他們對藝術的熱誠到底要向哪兒尋光呢？在學期間，他們共處了幾個年頭，學習上齊頭並進。如今各奔前程一段日子後再聚首一堂展出作品，互相影響減退了，作品比以前更加坦蕩蕩地表露各人的興趣與個性。
‘光脫脫 Stripped Lights’ is an exhibition of recent works of thirteen young artists. The name of the exhibition refers to expressing oneself frankly. In recent years, the participating artists develop themselves in different directions. Some of them work, study, abandoned art and etc. Sometimes, artists question the meaningfulness of doing art when they face problems and difficulties in life. Where shall these artists fulfil their enthusiasm of art? They had spent a few years learning and living together when they were studying. Now that they exhibit work after departing from each other’s influence, their works would gather their individual characters more frankly than a couple of years back.
The participating artists all graduated from the Department of Fine Arts of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and were taught by Lui Chun Kwong from 2007 to 2010. With youth, ignorance and nonchalance, they are what Lui regards as the fifth generation of artists in Hong Kong who are satisfied with current status without much self-reflecting. This exhibition will be held during Fotanian OpenStudio in Lui’s ‘Yi Liu Painting Factory’. Showing works in a venue owned by a person who was very important to the artists’ studies adds extra significance to the exhibition.

Gallery Livi is pleased to present the gallery first exhibition with works of mixed media installation - Sound of Air, by two young artists Helen SO Miiasoey and Boy YIU Kwan Ho.
Helen graduated from CUHK, her works often full of childlike fantasies and surpassed child nightmares in a paradoxical way, while her keen desire to searching for her identity has always been the repetitive theme of her works. The work of Boy Yiu is silent and poetic. Though Boy is major in sculpture, he never limits the art form and medium by combining installation, photography and multimedia for the creative process. Re-interpretation and appropriation of the existed text are one of the strengths of the artist.
The exhibition depicts the solitude they feel in this crowded city – the two are the whom cannot experience love thoroughly but eager to learn how to love, their works reflected the frustration and alienation whenever they are trying to feel love.
