Languages and Aesthetics of Spanish Video Art: Ten Years of Critical Practices


Dates:
Thu Apr 23, 2015 16:30 - Fri May 08, 2015

Location:
Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China

Languages and Aesthetics of Spanish Video Art: Ten Years of Critical Practices

Organized by: Videotage (Hong Kong) and Casa Asia (Spain)
Curated by: Menene Gras Balaguer

*Free Admission
*With English and Chinese Subtitles

Following an exemplary panel discussion about the future of the visual arts within the expanded field of the moving image, Videotage, along with co-organizer CASA ASIA (Spain), will conduct an enlivening series of screenings towards the end of April and into early May titled, Languages and Aesthetics of Spanish Video Art: Ten Years of Critical Practices. Curated by Menene Gras Balaguer, this project recently awarded by ACCA, the Art Critic´s Association, as the Best Project Abroad.

The video art works gathered in this proposal are assembled in seven different chapters or sessions based on conceptual and contextual elements. The proposal comes from the powerful narratives built up by the 25 Spanish artists who are part of this project. All of them engaged with the medium and well known in different international scenes. Their works are not only representative of the expanded field of the moving image, but also of the social landscape of our daily life in all its dimensions. Antoni Muntadas, Dora García, Eugenio Ampudia, Carles Guerra, Eugeni Bonet, Daniel García Andujar, Marcelo Expósito, Marisa González, Josep M. Martín, Alicia Framis, Francisco Ruiz de Infante, Albert Merino or Ivan Marino among others are some of the names specially recommended to articulate the current issues this project deals with, although all of them deserve to be mentioned here for one reason or another.

FUSE Art Residency: Chris Shen: Spectra.009 | HKG Transit


Dates:
Thu Mar 26, 2015 12:00 - Thu Apr 16, 2015

Location:
Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China

Videotage presents a two-part exhibition by UK artist Chris Shen as part of the FUSE Residency programme.

Operating in the space between technology and art, Chris Shen pursues to re-imagine the language of technology and communication. For the FUSE Residency Shen will present two installation works in two locations that play on the themes of interactivity within the landscape of media consumption.

Part one will present a version of the ongoing series Spectras in the window of Wontonmeen, Prince Edward. Spectra.009 consists of 256 custom manufactured lenticular tiles providing a unique perspective of everyday duality represented through the colours red & blue.

Part two features a continuation of a previous work Rastrum, first exhibited at the V&A Museum in London (2013). This edition titled HKG Transit, features footage filmed from various viewpoints of Hong Kong’s road, rail and ferry systems. The installation sees the cities landscape re-captured and projected at Videotage in the Cattle Depot Artist Village.

錄映太奇隆重呈獻英國藝術家Chris Shen於2015年3月至4月期間舉行的FUSE駐場計劃。

游走於科技與藝術之間,藝術家嘗試帶領我們重新思考科技與溝通的語言。Chris將會為駐場計劃帶來兩組同樣以媒體消費中的互動性為主題的裝置藝術作品。

第一組大型裝置藝術Spectras.009為Spectras系列的最新作品。作品會出現在坐落於太子的藝術家旅社Wontonmeen的大門窗口。Spectras.009由256塊特製的藍紅色磁磚建構成一個獨特的日常城市面貌.。

第二組裝置乃曾於2013年在倫敦V&A博物館展出的Rastru的延續 。今次的版本名為HKG Transit.。觀眾可以於牛棚藝術村中看到藝術家以拍攝香港道路` 鐵路和小輪的錄像片段重新構造的香港城市景觀 。

...Become like water my friend.” - Bruce Lee
OCEAN, as a theme of PGN 2015, is not a limitation, but an opportunity to dissolve boarders and boundaries, to "become like water", to submerge a rigid landmass, to look at OCEAN as a way of action, philosophical paradigm, world of folklore, post-human ecology, or as a mass of water.

fuse:: Chloe Cheuk - Every Every


Dates:
Fri Feb 13, 2015 19:00 - Mon Mar 02, 2015

Location:
Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China

Videotage is pleased to present the exhibition Every Every by the FUSE resident Chloe Cheuk. Every Every is a series of video and kinetic installations to extract and abstract the recurring pattern of our day-to-day existence. Cheuk sees life as a close-ended spiral, which oftentimes deceives us into the illusion of linear progress, whereas we are actually going round and round. The work particularly draws upon Cheuk’s distress about the recent occupying movement in Hong Kong where the recurring pattern is separation - union - confrontation. Cheuk is tempted to translate the pattern in visual and mechanistic language, with the seemingly innocuous objects such as the windows, kendamas and wheels that caught her attention at the site. By so doing, she slowly releases the empty and helpless feelings due to constant repression. Despite the work’s political context, what Cheuk concerns most is the fundamental meaning of an object - its mutability and its implications for individuals and society, and her tools for investigation are electronic device, video recording and editing.

One of the three exhibited pieces “Waiting for Another Round” is about the wheel, a symbol of the ruthless encroachment of urbanization. After the clearance of occupied sites, Cheuk patrolled the streets and documented the process of wheels devouring every inch of the remaining trace of the protest over 20 days. As the wheels roll on, different protest sites join together and fall apart endlessly. “If the Moment Came” is a video kinetic installation. The ball of kendama is thrown up, hit and open the wired glass window, which soon closes again. Fantasizing about the moment of breaking free from the forces, the ball hits the window persistently, but in vain.

Andrew Luk: No Fixed Abode


Space is an ever-pressing issue in our densely populated little metropolis of Hong Kong. This should come as no surprise as it claims some of the highest property prices in the world. Despite these unreasonably high prices, there are still a plethora of abandoned spaces in Hong Kong. The aim of this exhibition is to highlight these abandoned spaces through investigating and participating in the ongoing evolution of, and offering viewers a view of the paradigms within these spaces; how they exist now as a collaboration between the human and the natural, the functional and the unproductive, the flattening of past and the precarious state of the present.

Opening Reception:
16 January, 2015 (FRI) 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
