Video Art, Experimental Films and Music from the extreme remoteness of Papa Westray

Papay Gyro Nights Art Festival 2014: Hong Kong, one of the city’s most monumental events of media and contemporary art, is making its third annual return next month. Originated in a remote Scottish island named Papa Westray, Papay Gyro Nights is an annual celebration that reflects on the folktale, heritage, ritual and ancient tradition, interpreted by new media art. Riding along this theme, this year’s Hong Kong edition will comprise a diverse range of activities, including curators talks, video art exhibitions, experimental film screenings, and live performances delivered by more than 10 internationally renowned artists.

The Hong Kong edition of the festival is co-organized by Videotage and Papay Gyro Nights Art Festival (Orkney), in collaboration with NOVA (Northern Video Art Network), 700IS (Iceland), SKOGUL GONDUL (Norway) and FixC (Finland).
