< INSIDE : OUTSIDE 在內:在外 >
November 2021

Art After Hours—Inside: Outside brings together three artists who transform the external everyday imaginary into installations, videos, and sound performances which crisscross the indoor and outdoor spaces of Tai Kwun. In presenting emotional worlds in suspension between memory and reality, the artists explore a unique inner realm.

With a setup at JC Cube, Chan Tsz Man Iv unveils a family’s little-known life in Tai Kwun through the reshaped memories of her mother, with the past and future interwoven in the space. The story of a mother’s childhood is recounted, along with spatial dialogues outlined with her daughter. Members of the audience are welcome to experience the stage installation.

Charles Kwong’s Requiem, with texts by the writer and storyteller Yuen Che Hung, features performances by local musicians, transforming Tai Kwun into the intermediary space between past and future. This musical journey ventures into inner worlds as manifested through funeral ceremonies— rituals in the face of death. The work will be shown at different spots across Tai Kwun, both indoors and out.

Looping on repeat on the Laundry Steps is Erkka Nissinen’s absurd and surreal series of video works. The normality and anomaly of daily life are laid bare through CGI, animation and roleplay.

Participated Artists: 

Chan Tsz Man Iv, TAM Vun Kwan Rafael, Charles Kwong, Erkka Nissinen

集合三位藝術家將生活裡在外的日常與想像,以裝置、影像及聲音演出橫跨大館室內外空間,呈現游離於回憶和現實之間的在內情感,探索獨一無二的內心世界。

節目將有陳子雯將母親對回憶的重塑,透露出一個家族於大館內鮮為人知的日常,於賽馬會立方場館內搭建交織過去與未來的空間,訴說一位母親的童年以及和女兒勾勒出與空間的對話,並邀請觀眾體驗舞台裝置。

鄺展維的《安魂曲》由作家及故事人阮志雄創作文本、本地音樂家演奏,此作將大館轉化成跨越生前死後的場所,尋索在面對死亡之時,人藉殯葬儀式所呈現的內在世界,散落於大館內各室外內播放。

Erkka Nissinen一系列荒誕又超現實的錄像作品將會在洗衣場石階循環播放,透過電腦合成、動畫、扮演等多種手法,洞悉日常生活的正常與失常。
