A Tribute to Yasi: Poetic Journeys in Foreign Lands
向也斯致意:詩遊異鄉
2017年3月,我們懷着「這座城市、人、物還是依舊嗎?」的疑問,帶着也斯的作品守望香港。踏入2018年,讓我們與喜愛周遊列國的也斯(1949 – 2013),一同蒐集異鄉的風和日麗和歷史碎屑。
旅程將以讀書會為起點,我們捧起也斯的散文、詩集和小說,重踏他的創作足跡。接下來是一場雲集不同界別講者的研討會,從香港到世界,透過也斯作品細看香港作為全球城市的模樣。如果你心中有一點感興,就把它化成相片或畫作,你的作品將有機會與也斯的詩作一併展出。
3月1日,請來港大黃克競平台,我們讀詩、印詩、聽音樂、講故事、吃點心、呷一口來自世界各地的熱茶──誰說香港不能是異鄉呢? 本活動由書送快樂、香港大學通識教育部、香港大學文學院,以及香港大學比較文學系合辦,並獲香港大學現代語言及文化學院香港研究課程、香港版畫工作室,以及留家廚房支持。
Themed, ‘Watching Over Hong Kong’, the last commemoration of Yasi (1949 – 2013) was held in March 2017. We paid tribute to Yasi with music, arts, seminar, and poetry, and tried to decode this city’s past, present and future through Yasi’s works. This year, we will embark on poetic journeys to foreign lands with the well-travelled Yasi.
Being our first stop, the Book Club will revisit Yasi’s essays, poems, and short stories published in 1970s. Titled, ‘Journey of Yasi: Between Hong Kong and Foreign Lands’, the seminar will take us from Hong Kong to the world and re-examine Yasi’s works from the perspective of Hong Kong as a global city. Another highlight event is an exhibition in response to Yasi’s poetry works. You are invited to translate your observations on the world within and around you into various mediums of visual artworks . Together with Yasi’s poems, selected artworks will be showcased at a two-week exhibition.
The tribute will culminate with the highlight event on 1/3 (Thu). Join us for a cosy afternoon that commemorates Yasi with poetry, music, storytelling, Chinese dim sum, and tea from around the world.
The event is co-organised by Read-Cycling, the General Education Unit, the Faculty of Arts, and the Department of Comparative Literature, and supported by Hong Kong Studies Programme of the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, Hong Kong Open Print Shop, and Kin’s Kitchen.
