Bereavement - Kwong-san Tang (Artist)
Layer upon layer of weight is scraped onto a faint projected image.
The large-scale drawings exude tranquillity and absolute stillness.
Under the graphite are stories about loved ones and self-displacement.
Photography and drawing are combined to create mixed media works, transforming relics
into historical documents.
It is like standing in front of a monument, or reminiscing the deceased and contemplating one’s identity before an altar.
And so, the process of bereavement is completed.

Accumulation - Andy Lee (Artist)
“To dance, one must first have a body. The body is the foundation. It is also the foundation of each and every individual. The body can be likened to tree rings,” Andy Lee says.
The dance workshop led by him adopts a “danceless” approach. It foregoes choreographed dance steps and puts the focus back on movement games, enabling participants to explore the possibilities of the body and to connect with their innermost selves.
At the same time, it also raises the following questions: Has art been reduced to a form of “community service”? Is it becoming increasingly superficial and mediocre due to entertainment and recreational demand? Or has art become nothing more than a showy or charitable means of consumption?
What has been preserved is art’s ability to facilitate introspection and reacquaintance with our true selves. Let performance build dialogue, so that the presence of art will continue to remain solid.
