Ars Electronica Garden Hong Kong: Finissage Art Show

13-17. 9.2021 10:30am – 18:30pm HKT

@ Osage Gallery 

GARDEN HONG KONG at Osage Gallery is a one-week finissage art show of Ars Electronica 2021 Garden Hong Kong. Introducing Artificial Intentionalities, the Garden statement reads “Ars Electronica Garden Hong Kong’s curatorial inquiry explores various paths to better understand the entanglements that surface in the tectonic interplay of divergent worlds, where robots challenge social models, artworks try to understand each other, and the faraway meets the nearby.” The Garden Hong Kong is thus a call for “a DïaloG of curiosity and speculation alongside a salutary cocktail of poetry, science, politics and conviviality.” 

The natural conclusion of this significant contribution to the Ars Electronica Festival is the Galactic Wine Sharing Party that closes the Garden while opening GARDEN HONG KONG @ OSAGE GALLERY. It is a synthetic presentation of artworks of different kinds: interactive videos; dialogues with 26 artists and curators; real time recording of 360 live view of the Party; and the world premiere of a Robotic AI art installation Power Chess in the format of an art show. The works address topics related to contemporary art practices at present time, as well as the future of their existence / materiality / visibility in an art-world in constant mutation, while reflecting on the aesthetic, scientific, philosophical, or social issues that dither our tormented times.

Ars Electronica Garden Hong Kong: Galactic Wine Sharing Party

12.9.2021 18:00-21:00
Via Zoom

Pop by Hong Kong for a virtual drink with the Galactic media art community? 50% of what Festivals are about, is meeting friends and discovering new people, and this is what has been lost in the circumstances of the pandemic. But the technologically mediated routes, which we are forced to stick to, funnel us toward a more extensive intermixing of people who are usually distanced geographically, and culturally.

The main aim of Garden Hong Kong this year is to capacitate such encounters of disparate worldviews, and we invite you to join us virtually with a glass of wine from the comfort of your own locations to co-create these casual, wine-infused dialogues. This year’s event is officially supported by Ars Electronica to build on last year’s quirky yet successful party, by actively connecting many gardens around the globe via this remote-sensory, on/offline experiment.

A select group of artists, curators, scholars, and engineers, will join us physically in the synergistic environment of Osage Gallery in Hong Kong, where various virtual links to other gardens and participants from around the world will be concocted to facilitate many little dialogues in more intimate ways. We cordially invite you to join us to be a part of this experimental party!

LOUIS NIXON: Dropped

Opening: 29.9.2021 18:00 - 20:00

Exhibition period: 30.9 - 23.10.2021

Venue: Osage, 4F, 20 Hing Yip St, Kwun Tong

In the exhibition Dropped, Hong Kong based British artist Louis Nixon presents recent related and ongoing projects that explore through sculpture and film, how objects behave in gravity both in space and on earth, and how they drift, float and fall. Dropped brings together four related works that explore themes of gravity, space, motion and matter which have been consistent components of Nixon’s work for more than thirty years since his experience making a telescope as a sculpture student at the Slade in 1989.

Tai Kwun: LEUNG MEE PING

Poetic Heritage

Exhibition period: 02.09 - 21.11.2021

Venue: Tai Kwun JC Contemporary

梁美萍 Leung Mee-ping
Sound of Silence
2021
Mixed-media installation
Commissioned by Tai Kwun Contemporary 

In this installation, Leung Mee-ping uses aged roof tiles to explore themes of attachment and rootedness to a place. The artist collected long-disused tiles from places where old traditional village houses with tiled roofs and grey brick walls still stand. While these tiles originally served the purpose of providing protection from the elements for the inhabitants, here they are reinterpreted as a documentary heritage of their era. The hammering devices they are now equipped with generate a dribbling sound—for the artist, like a heap of broken thoughts
