Headmistress Mrs Lam and I represent Ying Wa Primary School this year to join the adventure. Although Mrs Lam left the group early for a music experience in Berlin on Day 1, and although this day was shadowed by annoying showers, gloomy clouds and chilling winds, this was still a greatly fruitful day for me as I could take parts in all sorts of cultural experience in Frankfurt. Some highlights are as follows:
Over the bridge, I walked to a small art gallery displaying a room of intriguing art form. This set of contemporary arts put together various items including dangling bells, paintings, photographs, tables of items, a TV screen, carpets and a sofa. I thought it was a studio where artists were in the progress of making something when I entered! But the leaflet told me that each item placed in the room was having artistic purposes. Although I am not an experienced visual artist, I found this hybrid form of expression meaningful. It’s like a combination of arts and daily lives.
