“I have experienced many touching stories during my teaching life and these stories have inspired me to move forward on creative works.” said Ms Annie Wan, Assistant Professor of the Academy of Visual Arts (AVA).


Annie was recently awarded “Artist of the Year (Visual Arts)” by the Hong Kong Arts Development Awards 2018. An exhibition entitled Zan Baak Fo was Ms Annie Wan’s most overwhelming artistic project carried out over the past year. The exhibition was held in a grocery store in the Ping Shek Estate, Kowloon, where the art replicas produced in ceramics were displayed. Meanwhile the same“art pieces” were placed and sold side by side at an extremely low price at a gallery in Sheung Wan. The project explored the concept of “Does art come with a price?” from the perspective of its relationship with the community.
