Description
  • This year's Artist-in-Residence Programme consists of three main activities: Exhibition, Mentoring Programme and Meet-the-Artist Session. The Exhibition traces the unfolding of life in six phases, presenting a selection of Mr Cheng's popular classics and masterpieces of literary finesses. Mr Cheng has specially written a preface to each phase in which he elaborates on the inspirations for his lyrics and their meaning, while the featured works are accompanied by selected personal items such as handwritten manuscripts, paintings, calligraphy works and awards. We hope visitors to the Exhibition will gain insights into Mr Cheng's artistic approach and technique, appreciate the poetic nuance of his lyrics, and grasp the meaning and thoughts that resound between the lines.

    The Mentoring Programme took place in February this year, when participating students and staff of PolyU had the opportunity to meet Mr Cheng and write their own lyrics under his guidance. The Meet-the-Artist Session will be held on 26 March 2018, when Mr Cheng will talk about his career in lyric-writing and offer insightful advice to aspiring lyricists.

    本年度駐校藝術家計劃共有三大活動:展覽、師友計劃、與藝術家會面。是次「筆底綿光」展覽以人生六大階段為脈絡,並根據這主題將鄭國江先生部分經典作品和寓意深遠的佳作分類展出。鄭先生更為每階段撰文,解釋創作緣由及歌詞意思,並借出珍貴手稿丶畫作、書法、獎項展出。希望參觀者藉此展覽,能明瞭鄭先生的創作態度及技巧、欣賞其歌詞的優美和意趣、領會字裡行間的寓義。

    而「師友計劃」已於二零一八年二月底舉行,參加此計劃的理大師生,有幸獲鄭先生親自傳授填詞之道,更在他指導下,嘗試按譜填詞。「與藝術家會面」則於三月廿六日舉行,鄭先生娓娓道來他數十年的填詞歲月,並寄語有志填詞之後進,有志者事竟成。
