    Indigenous - Human Ip (Writer/Illustrator)

    Human Ip is not a naturalist, but she can tell stories about flora and fauna ceaselessly and vividly at will.
    Roaming and searching amid the wilderness, the various species indigenous to Hong Kong are what fascinates her most. She has a penchant for describing their beauty in extreme detail with words and illustrations, the way a nature writer would.
    She focuses on in situ research. Through the exploration of “indigenous” things, she constantly contemplates and asks how people and other species can be interdependent with the environment in the same location for generations.

    Producer: Pui-ki Lun


    Quarantined- Cyrus Hui (Choreographer)

    The most familiar space that one lives in turns out to the be the most unfamiliar performance venue.
    This realisation first comes about simply out of helplessness.
    Since the pandemic began, theatres have closed, reopened, and shut again.
    However, the body says that it really, really wants to keep dancing.

    Whether one is dancing, watching, outside, or inside, everybody is trapped in a cramped space.
    There is a yearning not just for fresh air, but also freedom.

    Although the dancers and audience are “quarantined”, they are brought together at the same time through the screen.

      Practice - Eastman Cheng (Artist)

      Eastman Cheng_Practice

      With repetitive movements and the toing and froing of needle and thread, Eastman Cheng creates pillowy sculptures using fabric.
      The colours of marshmallows and soft textures constitute familiar objects, as well as her imaginings of the world.
      The endless desire to create and incessant practice are constants in her daily life.

      Producer: Freda Hui

      Footprints - Alice Ma (Dancer / Choreographer)

      She is dancing solo, but also dancing with the times.
      Alice Ma likes to create experimental contemporary dance performances, through which she explores human nature and the current state of society with her body, and also finds an outlet for venting the hysterical emotions deep within her.
      Choreography enables her to leave traces of her own growth journey a step at a time. From these faint footprints, she searches for rhythm and direction relentlessly, determined to advance with the times at her own pace.

      Bereavement - Kwong-san Tang/ Accumulation - Andy Lee

      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.

      Producer: Ka-ho Tse


      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.

      Emptiness - Edas Wong (Street Photographer)

      Edas Wong is a street photographer. His creative inspiration comes from everything around him. In order to capture the moments that he is after, he will observe quietly, wait, and even empty his mind, so that he can explore without boundaries in a state of non-existence.

      Producer: Manfred Chow

      Freedom - Kwan-lok Chan(Ink Artist)

      Having fallen in love with the gongbi technique from tracing ancient Chinese paintings, Kwan-lok Chan uses images instead of language to express his emotions and to document his own stories. The experience of deep-sea diving and his friends’ accounts of their life abroad both spark his creativity. Each line drawing done on rice paper seems like a diary entry.
      Kwan-lok Chan enjoys painting slowly. Being able to express his thoughts on paper in freedom and comfort without being disturbed by trivial matters in the real world is his greatest wish.

      Unknown - Joseph Lee (Dancer / Choreographer)

      From individuals to society, from everyday life to the world... You think you know about them all, yet you find that everything is unpredictable.

      Joseph Lee pays constant attention to his body, with which he is most familiar as a dancer. When it comes to perceptions that we have grown accustomed to, are there other possibilities and answers?

      Let yourself face the unfamiliar, let the body explore new domains, let dance create space for contemplation, so that you can take on the various unknowns that lie ahead.

      Producer: Freda Hui

      Muddled - Mudwork (Art Creation Group)

      It looks like a first-generation mobile phone, but it is actually a shaver;
      It looks like a shaver, but it is actually a hairdryer...
      Everything in existence has more than one appearance.
      With just a little more imagination, everyone can become an inventor.

      Mudwork is an art collective that likes to ponder on the original nature of objects and explore their hidden potential.
      In addition to being husband and wife, they are also partners in creation. This time, let us venture into their fantastical world and sneak a peek at what they have in store.

      Spontaneity-Onion Peterman(Printmaker, illustrator)
      Impulse drives creation.
      Road signs, “witches’ hats”, fire hydrants, and some of the most ordinary cityscapes become narrative-rich images in Onion Peterman’s eyes. They are then transformed into prints through silkscreen printing.
      She enjoys the freedom and spontaneity of using silkscreen printing to create zines, as it enables her to compile the images in her mind into books. Although the process of silkscreen printing is gruelling, it is precisely because of the painstaking effort that she pours into each book that Onion is so attached to them. Consequently, she will not exchange them with other people easily.


      Imprints-Sara Tse (Ceramic Artist)
      Sara is in the habit of using liquid porcelain to seal memories, a process which obliterates and dissolves tangible matter at the same time. Among her works are her loved one’s old clothes which have been dipped in liquid porcelain. The original garments are burnt to ashes at high temperatures, leaving behind only white porcelain imprints. They hold her deepest yearnings for her mother, express her well wishes for her children, and also document their growth.
      From the people to the places she cherishes, Sara hopes to document them in detail using white porcelain, and subsequently explore all kinds of subtle changes in the imprints.
      Even though life is fragile, love and emotions are everlasting.

      Useful - Ryan Hui, Wy Lee (Ceramic artists)

      After undergoing multiple changes in state, clay is transformed into pottery.
      This is the outcome of thoughtful choices made by ceramic artists Ryan Hui and Wy Lee.

      Be it crockery, planters, or teaware, people leave their traces on pottery.
      And so, we learn to grasp brief moments of leisure in our hands in our mundane daily lives.
      And so, we learn to take care of ourselves.
      This is the purpose of pottery.

      The two ceramic artists will study the unique firing technique of “carbonisation”, unleashing the wildness in clay amid fire and smoke.

      Producer: Ka-ho Tse


      Useless - Debe Sham (Sculptor)

      What is “useful”? What is “useless”?

      How are standards of value established? Where do rules and etiquette come from?

      These are the issues that Debe Sham is constantly exploring. She hopes to put forward some values that are neglected in the adult world in her works, so that viewers can reflect on them. Debe Sham searches for creative inspiration in the world of children and fashions large-scale sculptures using materials such as metal and wood. Chairs are an element that often appears in her works. Since empty seats give people the urge to sit on them, they serve as a bridge between her creations and the audience.

      Perpetuation - Wing-po So / Mutualism - Chun-yip Lo

      Perpetuation - Wing-Po So (Visual Artist)

      Wing-Po So was born into a family of Chinese medicine practitioners and has been examining medicinal herbs for fun since she was young.
      To her, the medicinal ingredients in the apothecary cabinet are nature in a dehydrated state and, even more so, essential materials for artistic creation.
      She combines the philosophy of Chinese medicine with contemporary art, giving rise to reinterpretations and conceiving a fantastic imaginary world.
      Through her artworks, she hopes to perpetuate tradition in a different way, one which also perpetuates her deep affection for her family.

      Producer: Pui-ki Lun

      Mutualism - Chun-yip Lo (Actor / Documentary Director)

      Chun-yip Lo describes himself as a quiet, passive, and carefree person.
      He is an actor as well as a documentary filmmaker. Looking back on his creative journey over the past decade, “smooth” would not be his adjective of choice.
      Fortunately, what he has experienced through his two creative identities has taught him to incorporate the people and things that he cherishes into his works.
      This mutualism between different creative identities guides him to explore continuously, face himself candidly, and look forward to the future.

      Seeing - Chris Sin-kan Huen (Arist)

      A child picks up a pen and draws incessantly on a piece of paper.
      The bunch of black lines perhaps raises doubt in you.
      “What is that?”
      “A cat.”

      With everything that exists on this planet, be it a cat or a world, how we “see” depends on what our eyes perceive and what our brains interpret.

      Chris Huen picks up a pen and draws incessantly on a piece of paper.
      His works perhaps raise doubt in you.
      They embody the artist’s desire to manifest the experience of seeing through painting.

      We see because we are alive.

      Producer: Ka-ho Tse


      Vanishing - Brandon Chan (Artist)

      Memories seem to be proof that we are alive. Or maybe their existence holds us back...

      If our memories were to vanish, what would we rely on to live? Would making the most of the present prevent us from living in fear?

      Brandon Chan likes collecting stories, and enjoys collecting objects to tell stories even more. This time, he puts the focus back on himself. Through introspection and telling his own story, he prepares for his own “vanishing”.

      Confession - Hum Chuk / Contradiction - Simon Wan

      Confession - Hum Chuk (Illustrator);
      Negative space. Monochrome. Declaration. Clarity. Monologue.
      Blankness. Honesty. Overtness. Ambiguity. Confession.
      At the end of 2014, after experiencing the Umbrella Movement, Humchuk quit his architectural design job. He describes his life over the past six years as living full-time and illustrating part-time.
      Humchuk spends several afternoons in the summer of 2020 before the camera to talk about his belief of the connection between people, and how he has put bartering into practice in daily life. He also gives us a glimpse into his current project, through which he hopes to regain a sense of regularity in the here and now.

      Producer: Bacon Cheng

      Contradiction - Simon Wan (Photographic artist)
      Using images as metaphors, Simon Wan likes to infuse his works with implicit language to express his views.
      The social movement, which coincided with his creation of a series intended to respond to a local collection housed at an art museum, became a channel for him to vent his emotions. It also prompted him to photograph the sea in Sai Kung whenever there’s a full moon, a creative journey which enables him to find solace in the sound of the waves under the dark night sky in solitude.
      Life is full of contradictions. As he searches for tranquillity in the night sky, the mountains, and chaos, and clarifies contexts through reflection, his creative direction gradually becomes apparent. The majority of Simon Wan’s artworks have undergone lengthy creative processes. To him, creation does not happen with the pressing of the shutter, but with the entire journey.
