Plentiful Pluralities: Renaissance Festival 2017
Sep 16 – 30
Opening: Saturday, Sep 16, 7pm
Plentiful Pluralities: Renaissance Festival 2017 exhibits art pieces by young artists from a diverse walk of life, hoping to show how different art forms are informed by and interact with ordinary lives and communities. We have included a plethora of exciting activities and artworks. Human Images biographizes a hundred local elders through affective video shorts; Transform．People offers drama therapy workshop stimulating the five senses for attendants to experience body liberation, and thus to get a taste of self-healing through body movements; “Serrini’s Quiet Room” materializes a room of emotional expressions of the mellow singer-songwriter, presenting how the musician invests daily ordinary experiences into her extraordinary world of musical-storytelling; “Lost Names” reflects on the notion of fragmentation in the age of social media, proposing “anonymous writing” as a way to rehabilitate the publicity of writing; “the Consignment Store of Arts” will show the connection between young artists and the community through displaying a wide collection of small individual artworks.
1a space was founded in 1998 as an independent and non-profit organisation of contemporary visual art by a collective of Hong Kong art workers. It aims to “promote the critical dissemination of contemporary visual arts practices and affiliated art forms” from Hong Kong and abroad.
