First launched in 2008, the Hong Kong - Macau Visual Art Biennale presented by the Ministry of Culture now enters its fifth edition. This year the Biennale sets its theme on ‘Interactive Times'. After its first stop at the Beijing Minsheng Art Museum in September, the exhibition will be staged at Dunhuang in Gansu as part of the first Silk Road (Dunhuang) International Culture Expo before moving on to Henan Art Museum in Zhengzhou in October 2016.
The Hong Kong exhibition for the Biennale will display new media artworks including animation, projection displays and interactive installations created by eight groups of artists who aspire to explore the significance of ‘interaction' in the modern world. Today interactive technology is not only applied to the production of art. It even changes the role of the audience and repositions viewers as doers. The artworks are not intended to showcase technology but let audience participate. In addition to fostering communication, these interactive artworks inspire reflections on the intricate relationship between technology and art and unleash our imagination.
Hong Kong artists, Henry Chu, Tobias Gremmler, Max Hattler, Ip Yuk-yiu, Alan Kwan, Jeffrey Shaw and Sinan Goo,Tamas Waliczky and anothermountainman (Stanley Wong)'s works will let audience enjoy sensational experience while challenging convention at different levels.
