*1.2.2013 with post-performance meet-the-artists session
The human body is a magical cosmos, and Life is a wonderfully compelling journey. But mankind have been treating their bodies and their lives in myriad different ways:
Some created miracles to cure the body, while others twisted other people’s bodies in the name of tradition, or for their own gain.
Some touched our hearts with their efforts to extend Life, even if it meant only by a minute or a second, while others had totally no respect for Life, trampling all over the lives of others and manipulating them for political gain.
The body is by itself a vehicle for soul and a means to perpetuate living, but it has become a battlefield where a revolution is on the verge of breaking out.
The Body, I.D. Space Series is a work-in-progress conducted by Y-Space over many years, with the purpose of exploring the various human aspects, from body, space to identity. Previous performances were held at the 798 Art Zone in Beijing, the OCT Contemporary Art Terminal in Shenzhen, and the HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity in Hong Kong. Each show was a multimedia adventure inviting audience participation. For this upcoming fifth of the series, it will become a body battlefield take place at the Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences.
