Can We Live (Together) – An exhibition curated by Lee Chun Fung – sets out to examine the collaborative relationship between artists in order to outline the ecology of local art / community initiatives, and thus to explore the importance of practices of self-organisations in Hong Kong's art community and cultural life.
The exhibition looks at the cases of several self-initiators / artists to propose a creative approach based on collaboration. Examples include "HK Farm", a project founded by Michael Leung and friends, "People's Pitch" initiated by Him Lo and his friends and a "self-organised" video screening hut from HomeShop founder Elaine W. Ho. These creative approaches break away from the traditional mind-set of generating art from the personal perspective. Instead, art is created through deliberation, co-operation, conversation and the building of relationships: a common idea is developed using a bottom-up approach to achieve the ideals of "being together". In addition, artists Ocean Leung and Joe Yiu further develop the outcomes of "WHAT IF (Artist Village)" launched in the kick-off exhibition of Sparkle!, in response to the imaginative ideas of an ecology of self-organisations.
