Exhibition: TIME UNFROZEN – FROM LIU KUO-SUNG TO NEW MEDIA ART

With the revolutionary spirit of Liu Kuo-Sung’s ink painting, features of new media art and contemporary thought, guest curator Rita Chang makes a series of temporal, spatial and psychological connections with the audience of this exhibition.

『第三屆小洲藝術節』

香港獨立短片及錄像比賽第15屆獲獎作品放映交流會
活動時間:2010年10月9-10日(週六、日)19:30
活動地點:廣州小洲村禮堂

本次活動屬於第三屆小洲藝術節的獨立影像單元部分,邀請了香港獨立短片及錄像比賽的部分得獎作品過來放映,在放映會期間導演也將到場與觀眾互動交流。
香港藝術中心自1995年起開始舉辦香港獨立短片及錄像比賽(ifva),多年來著意發掘及培育新一代媒體創作工作者,並促進亞洲各地的創意媒體人才互相交流,鼓勵更多的獨立創作人加入創作行業。累積了歷年的基礎,ifva已成為新一代創意媒體人才的搖籃,造就不少在本地及國際上舉足輕重的電影及媒體創作人,當中包括:袁建滔、許誠毅、賈樟柯、餘力為、彭浩翔、黃精甫、麥婉欣、崔允信、黎妙雪、洪強、曾翠珊及麥曦茵。當多媒體日益成為當代藝術創作方式的時候,關於影像藝術的討論也變得有效和必要,此次邀請第十五屆比賽的獲獎作品在小洲藝術節期間放映,既是為錄像藝術家提供對話和交流的機會,也是在錄像媒介成為集體創作傾向狀態下的一種反思。

放映及討論會時間安排

This is Hong Kong

This Is Hong Kong presents a selection of artists from Hong Kong that reflect on the idea of politics, history, architecture, postcolonial issues and daily life in this territory. The moving image has been one of the areas favored with an intense research in the creative practice of the Hong Kong art scene, and mark a stark difference with that of mainland China, reflecting on differences in cultural background and academic training. This Is Hong Kong presents a unique visual picture of what is Hong Kong now, through an analysis from video media, providing a fresh snapshot of development of the territory after postcolonial devolution in 1997.
The exhibition is divided under four general themes: (TRANSITIONAL) ARCHITECTURES, DIARIES, FICTIONS and TACTICAL POSITIONS. Each section deals with a different side of the city, and represents the different strategies developed by the artists.

Participating artists:

Howard Cheng Chi Lai / Chow Chun Fai / S.T. Choi Sai Ho / Silas Fong / Hung Keung /Ip Yuk-Yiu / Linda Lai / Leung Chi Wo / Leung Mee Ping / MAP Office / Kingsley Ng / Adrian Wong / Kacey Wong / Woo Ling Ling / Ban Zhang

Venue: Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts / 102 Gallery
Curator’s point of view Curator: Alvaro Rodriguez Fominaya

This Is Hong Kong presents a selection of artists from Hong Kong that reflect on the idea of politics, history, architecture, postcolonial issues and daily life in this territory. The moving image has been one of the areas favored with an intense research in the creative practice of the Hong Kong art scene, and mark a stark difference with that of mainland China, reflecting on differences in cultural background and academic training. This Is Hong Kong presents a unique visual picture of what is Hong Kong now, through an analysis from video media, providing a fresh snapshot of development of the territory after postcolonial devolution in 1997.

The exhibition is divided under four general themes: (TRANSITIONAL) ARCHITECTURES, DIARIES, FICTIONS and TACTICAL POSITIONS. Each section deals with a different side of the city, and represents the different strategies developed by the artists.

(TRANSITIONAL )ARCHITECTURES commences with Kingsley Ng’s recreation of tourist flashlights from Hong Kong’s most prominent tourist haunt, known as The Peak. The blinking flashlights are the score for a musical composition created by the artist. MAP Office’s approach reminds us of the harsh realities of urban development speculation, both works have strong soundtracks, but use opposite strategies, and while one is lyrical and subtle, the other one is brutalist and painful. Kacey Wong’s comment on real estate development is playful and naïf, and the same time it takes us to older black and white times through the stop motion animation technique. Silas Fong focuses on the notions of circulation and system for his video documentary, taking shots from Hong Kong’s MTR, “stealing” images from the public space. Leung Chi Wo approaches the idea of the intersectional space, the in-between unbuilt void that remains as a small cut out and connects the cities of New York and Hong Kong. Howard Cheng Chi Lai explores the areas of communal living, and concludes this section originating a rhythmical soundtrack that originates in the hinges of gates and doors, and that increasingly speeds up for the delight of the viewer.

DIARIES brings together three works that are either visual diaries, reflections of the inner self or observations of the real other. Woo Ling Ling reproduces a dreamlike atmosphere in a video that explores the unconscious; in her video the camera dives into the skin of a building to end up in a woman’s bedroom. Linda Lai research takes us across continents and ordinary daily life. Lai’s documentary style pins down the world of small things and gestures, although the “ordinariness” of everything falls into pieces when faces with more surreal intromissions. Leung Mee Ping documentary focuses on the Other, following the path of a vagabond in the city of Hong Kong.

FICTIONS is an exploration of different narrative techniques that are closer to the cinematic than video-art, and point us into one of the most prolific areas of research in the 90s. Hung Keung draws a portrait of several characters in Mong Kong, home to Hong Kong’s underworld. Meanwhile Adrian Wong takes of Chinese Triads through a symbolic and powerful representation of tenderness. Ip Yuk-Yiu recycles feature film The Moon Is Larger in Peking, editing the images and keeping some of the films dialogues in the form of subtitles, creating in this way a new narrative.

TACTICAL POSITIONS refers to the artists political engagement, through works that discuss the political and connect with recent History or the media. S.T. Choi Sai Ho follows the yearly pro-democracy demonstration in Hong Kong. Ban Zhang reflects on his Chinese/Taiwanese identity, and Chow Chun Fai researches a government sponsored TV spot that rejoices in the postcolonial situation of Hong Kong.
