羅偉珊由 2011 年開始成為卑爾根藝術設計學院藝術系碩士生。有時候被美好的大自然、人和事緊緊包圍著的她，不禁忘掉藝術／藝術家或展覽相關的事情。現時非常用心感受她周遭的一切﹣包括人物、地方、自然等，更著力關注這種種之間的關係。她以疑問、重新理解、活躍聆聽、聯繫及價值搜索等為她的日常練習。

Art exhibition’s today are often confusing to people. The mission of this information centre is to investigate the different viewpoints regarding the term “Artist” and “Artwork”. Through video interviews and informal discussions, the audience may further appreciate and enjoy the Graduation show.
About the artwork:
Information Centre was an event‐based intervention, occupying a little room AVA110 right next to the campus side entrance. The centre was in all black and white, with seats and cushions, and graduation catalogue and yearbook of all previous years were displayed. I made an exhibition guide and an video of 16 interviews to asked questions about art, artwork, and the graduation exhibition itself.
I decided to set a scene/an occasion as I was the director of Public Relations of the show, I tried to utilize my role and duties to merge with what I have to show during graduation exhibition. (It made me feel more comfortable than making objects to display.)
1. an exhibition guide(freely distributed): showing introduction of Information Centre, “What is graduation show” & “What is Honors Project” & interviewees of the video.
2. a video projection: Interviewing people who are related to Academy of Visual Arts, and those who have influenced my art practice to talk about their views on “what is artist” and “what is artwork”.

Susi Law has been taking the role of master student in fine art at Bergen Academy of Art and Design in Norway since 2011. Being surrounded by great nature and people makes her relate herself closer to the world in a natural way, sometimes she forgets about art/artist/exhibition-related stuff.
Currently Susi cares more about her surroundings (people, physical space, nature) and pay very much attention to the relations in between. She treats wondering, reinterpreting, active listening, relating and value hunting as her usual practices.
Graduated from Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University, worked as Project Manager in month-long festival October Contemporary 2009 – Now, or Never, and Manager of Curatorial Affairs at soundpocket from 2009 – 2011 which made her an active listener and decent caretaker. She is also interested in helping out people on various small tasks to nurture the local art and cultural field.
Recently she is fascinated by mist, lighthouse and Nordic sea. Corn and tou-fu is her favourite food.
