下道基行2001年畢業於武藏野美術大學油畫系,是一位旅人藝術家,創作大多以研究及田野考察的方式展現那些在日常生活被埋沒或遺忘的歷史或故事。  

2001年到2005年,下道遊歷全日本,拍攝在二戰後的60年間被廢棄或轉化作其他用途的軍事結構和設備,例如地堡、堡壘和機槍堡,並將調查成果集結成冊,出版了《戰爭的姿態》。 2006年到2012年,下道展開了日本境外的田野工作,拍攝鳥居作為太平洋戰爭的歷史痕跡;從明治時期到二戰期間被日本統治的台灣以及韓國,到庫頁島和塞班島... 這些失去神聖光環的鳥居,平靜地揭示了歷史與當下。

  下道於2015年獲相模原年青攝影師獎,2014年獲鐵犬異托邦文學獎,亦是2012年光州雙年展最佳新人獎項得主。

Graduated from Musashino Art University's Department of Painting in 2001, SHITAMICHI Motoyuki is a ‘traveling’ artist, known for using research and fieldwork approach to unfold the stories and histories that had been largely forgotten or buried by our everyday lives.  

From 2001 to 2005, Shitamichi travelled all over Japan, to photograph abandoned military structures and equipment, such as bunker, fort and pillboxes, that have been left to deteriorate during the 60 years since World War II. These research and findings have been compiled and published into the book Remnants. From 2006 to 2012, Shitamichi photographed torii that still remain standing outside Japan as relics of the Pacific War. From Taiwan and Korea, i.e. the region that was ruled over by Japan from the Meiji period until the end of WWII, to the Sakhalin and Saipan, the history and present of these now shrine-less torii are calmly revealed.  

He received Sagamihara Young Photographer Award in 2015, Tekken Heterotopia Literary Prize in 2014 and Noon Award (Emerging Artist) of Gwangju Biennale in 2012.

鄧國騫,混合媒介藝術家、兼從事獨立策展及寫作,2008及2006年分別取得香港中文大學藝術系藝術碩士及文學士。其創作路途始於對其原居民背景不間斷的追問。他的作品淡化藝術和生活的界線,透過融和創作及人類種種矛盾展現本質的意義。他時常挪用和重構日常與個人的文本訴說隱伏生活的故事,如觸及成長、承傳、自由、資本主義、消費主義、政治、規範等。  

鄧氏於2011年獲香港藝術發展獎藝術新秀獎(視覺藝術)、2013年亞洲文化協會獎助金得主,2010、2011及2014年入選傑出亞洲藝術獎。

TANG Kwok-hin is a mixed media artist, independent curator and writer. He received his Master of Fine Arts from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008 and Bachelor of Arts in 2006. Tang started his artistic path in continuous queries about his native background. He blurs boundaries between art and life by integrating creation with conflicts of human kinds thus revealing their intrinsic values. He often appropriates and reconstructs daily and personal contexts to narrate hidden stories in life, dealing with growth, inheritance, freedom, capitalism, consumerism, politics, norms, etc.  

He received the Asian Cultural Council Grant in 2013, the Young Artist Award of Visual Arts by Hong Kong Arts Development Council in 2011and was selected for Sovereign Asian Art Prize in 2010, 2011 and 2014.

亞洲文化引發的另類藝術學習體驗
天台塾策劃的《亞洲種子》獲香港特別行政區政府「藝能發展資助計劃」資助,是一項為本地青少年而設的跨文化免費藝術教育計劃。  

如果您年齡介乎14至18歲之間               
・ 想參加由藝術家親自操刀設計的藝術工作坊             
・ 想與藝術家一起到東京遊學             
・ 想一手策劃自己的展覽  

請不容錯過 《亞洲種子》 計劃!我們現正公開召募第二期的參與者,承接第一期的理念和構思,我們對跨文化的藝術教育實踐將持續發酵。《亞洲種子》 提倡以當代藝術作為引線,串連亞洲近代的歷史、社會及文化議題,讓青年人有直接與藝術家交流學藝的機會,建立跨文化視野以及更廣闊的世界觀去了解自身與社會的關係。  

第二期的 《亞洲種子》 計劃的主題為「日常對象」。請來日藉藝術家下道基行和香港藝術家鄧國騫合作進行與兩地有關的城市考察,並且將之深化為四天的藝術工作坊,透過一系列的田野考察和實地體驗去觀察日常生活中被隱藏的秩序、歷史和記憶。  

學員將從藝術家講座、工作坊、遊學及展覽的經驗中學習運用影像、現成物及文字來表達自己的觀察和思考。

An alternative art learning experience catalysed by Asia culture
Rooftop Institute presents Asia Seed. This programme is supported by the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. It is a free cross-cultural art education programme dedicated to Hong Kong youth.  

If you are aged between 14 to 18 and want to               
・ participate in an artist’s research and design workshop             
・ experience a Tokyo art trip together with these artists             
・ organize your own exhibition  

Please don't miss Asia Seed programme! We are now open recruiting participants for Cycle 2. To continue our mission and vision, we will further the experience from Cycle 1 to develop this cross-cultural art education in practice.  

Asia Seed uses contemporary art as a catalyst to connect the Hong Kong youth with Asia’s modern history as well as its social and cultural issues, thus allowing young people to interact directly and learn from artists. Asia Seed intends to bring to them a new perspective on the region in order to enrich their international vision with a broader perspective.  

“Everyday Object” is the theme of Asia Seed Cycle 2. We invited Japanese artist SHITAMICHI Motoyuki and Hong Kong artist TANG Kwok-hin to collaborate and undertake their own research on the city to develop a 4-day art workshop. Their research is conducted through a series of field studies and site visits to observe the hidden rules, history and memory shaping everyday life.  


Through their experience in the artist talks and workshops, as well as their Asia art trip and exhibitions, the young participants will learn to use images, ready made objects and texts to express their own observations and thoughts.
