Bear in Mind
2016.12.3 – 2017.6.30
Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department
Organised by the Hong Kong Museum of Art
We will present two artworks at Art Square that help us revisit memories. One installation, Post a Memory to the Future, created by William Lim, functions as a post office pavilion with hanging "remembrance". He specially designed some postcards inspired by our collective heritage and memories to encourage you to share your thoughts and hopes with us. Another artwork, entitled Contemplation of Lovingkindness, by Mok Yat-san, presents an unusual scene next to a lawn. Placing a polar bear against a painting scroll with a literati landscape, the work encourages viewers to cherish nature before it vanishes and becomes only a memory.
As part of this exhibition, our education programmes partner, soundpocket, will organise a series of activities with sound art and moving images to share our memories of the Museum and our city. Please follow our updates on the Museum website, listen to the artists' thoughts and stay in touch!
Artist Enoch Cheng joins hands with performers Steve Hui, Chan Kwun Yee, Zip Ho Kin Man, Leung Tin Chak, and others in developing an interdisciplinary project. They will launch a screening of a work-in-progress movie shot before the closure of the Hong Kong Museum of Art in 2015 and compliment it with live-music, DJ gig and a dance performance. The artist hopes to inspire the audience to see, to feel, to participate, to dance and to dream on this platform for memory and imagination.
