Jointly organized by the Macao Wisdom Humanities Encourage Political Association, the Greater Bay Area Ceramic Collection and Exchange Association, and the Centre for Chinese History and Culture at the University of Macau (UM), the calligraphy exhibition “Native Land Emotion” of “Telling China’s Story Well” was held from 27 September 2021 to 30 October 2021 at the Multi-function Hall, Cultural Building (E34- G016) at the UM.
The calligraphy exhibition “Native Land Emotion” of “Telling China’s Story Well” creatively combined the two forms of art, which were ceramics and calligraphy. Both ceramics and calligraphy have had a profound historical original since ancient times, and they have similar artistic characteristics. The works on display in this exhibition were created by Mr. Ung Choi Kun. Mr. Ung loves traditional Chinese culture since he was small, and has a keen interest in calligraphy, painting, and pottery, etc. He often observes and appreciates different artistic works, and favors collecting ceramic sculptures. In recent years, Mr. Ung has held a number of personal calligraphy exhibitions to promote traditional Chinese culture by combining calligraphy with current politics and tradition with innovation.
This exhibition is of special significance. Based on traditional Chinese culture, the works on display told the story of China and Macao. Meanwhile, the exhibition enthusiastically praised that “Under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, China has made great achievements in development that have attracted worldwide attention. The people of all ethnic groups in the country are united, and they work together to move towards a better and happy life”. Furthermore, this exhibition also paid tribute to “the basic social values of the noble nation, patriotism, and love for Macao”.
