Ava, a magazine which comprehensively and creatively informs the general public about what is important to AVA – how we feel, think, and ultimately create. It embraces the high flying dreams, adventurous ideas as well as the spirited enthusiasm of AVA. It publishes annually in October.
A Living Space: The Homes of Pak Sha O
The Chinese title of the book literally means ‘a livable house’ and refers to a house in Pak Sha O, Hong Kong, that the artist and AVA Professor Ki Wong found on the way. Every time she passes by the house, she is led into ponderous thoughts on existence. The first of three books, it is part of the biennial project “A Living Space” which explores the intrinsic qualities and possibilities of life through a range of observations and research. Initiatives will take various forms, such as works of art, publications, exhibitions, websites and public events – all linked by the same theme.
