"Shape, Fragment and Impression" at KCR Art Corner
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) has put up a new collection of two-dimensional art pieces at the KCR Art Corner in East Rail East Tsim Sha Tsui Station. Produced by the students of Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Shatin), the collection is comprised of black and white photographs and illustrations depicting episodes of everyday lives.
Themed "Shape, Fragment and Impression", the new collection is an exhibition of photographs by Year One Design students, and illustrations by Graphic and Media students and graduates. The theme of the exhibition is an inspired portrayal of Hong Kong’s unique urban and cultural scenes through transformative abstractions, bringing to life different aspects of Asia’s World City.
KCRC launched the KCR Art Corner in East Tsim Sha Tsui Station earlier this year in support of the promotion and development of local art education. It has also provided a new platform for local artists to share their works with the public.
"Apart from providing value-added service to our passengers, KCRC also cares about the cultural development of Hong Kong. Through this collection of creative art displays, we could provide students an opportunity to showcase their creativity and at the same time open up a new window for passengers to appreciate art in their busy and hectic lives," said Mrs Grace Lam, General Manager – Corporate Affairs of KCRC.
"This collection, themed "Shape, Fragment and Impression", is the second in a series of joint production showcasing design creativity in Hong Kong. The first exhibition held before was a resounding success in bringing art and design to the general public." said Ms Grace Kao, Principal Lecturer of the Department of Design of the Institute. The exhibition aims to create opportunities for international exposure and wide public recognition of our new creative talents," added Ms Kao.
The display, featuring 18 pieces of illustrations and black and white photographs, will be on till late November. Passengers and the public are most welcome to appreciate the art pieces at the East Rail East Tsim Sha Tsui Station.
