Art House and IB Diploma Visual Arts Exhibition
Every year secondary students in both the French and International streams exhibit their artwork.
From Monday 20 February to Thursday 30 March 2017
Corridors of the 3rd, 4th and 5th floors at Blue Pool Road campus
The common theme for all pieces is movement.
Patterns of movement or suspended movement mixing painting, photography, flattening, sewing … students combined force and freedom to meet this artistic challenge. By highlighting movement such as jumping, running or throwing students illustrated speed, dynamism and motion. Some pieces were auctioned and sold at the FIS Gala on the 4 March 2017.

4 students from the International Stream will present their work. The works displayed are very personal and the techniques vary: video, paint, collage, sculpture and photography.
From Monday 20 March to Friday 24 March
5/f at Blue Pool Road Campus (room 506)
Below the presentation of the 4 FIS students
Sofia Gagliano, of Italian and New Zealand heritage, decided to work on the theme: Multiculturalism. Her collage “I love Hispanics” denounces the politics of the new American president in an ironic way.
Mao Lin Huang wanted to explore the theme “Connections” highlighting links between humans, objects, sometimes abstract or linked to identity. She created a “Light box” which reminds us how technology is taking our lives over more and more. This box contains a world map with tech icons as pasted as paper cut outs. A real work of art!
Kikinay Kemp working on the Thai culture is presenting a still life in grains of rice and acrylic on canvas. A nighly original and detailed work which underlines his Thai heritage.
Aurélien Nissen has worked on “Hong Kong: Cultures and Traditions”, a rich theme with original works. Her photo montage “Home” was inspired by the photographer Michael Wolf and accomplished through a photographic series in disadvantaged places in the New Territories.
