Featured Event
 
Untitled III by Wayson Poon
Form without form,
Path without path,
Motion without motion,
Self without self.
 
The choreography is inspired by the paintings of Liu Wentao, in which 'the intertwining straight lines result in a tranquil geometric space'.  From a Chinese philosophy perspective, the choreography goes on to explore the concepts of ‘dot-line-plane’ through the physicality of the dancers, their extended dynamics, and the relations in between these two.  Untitled III reveals the shifting relations between the states of ‘Have Not, or Non-existence’ and ‘Have, or Existence’, further to reflect the emotional and physical distance between individuals in order to attain inner peace.

【Hong Kong Arts Centre】 The 24th ifva Awards Now Calling for Entry
Organised by the Hong Kong Arts Centre and sponsored by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the 24th ifva Awards officially opens in August. This year ifva attempts to connect with the unique world of the creators, and also queries the meaning and essence of creating. Apart from inviting creative talents to serve as jurors, this year ifva’s publicity collaterals and trailers are all created by young independent filmmaker Wong Fei-pang, who looks into the inner lonely world of artists from his own first-hand perspective. The black tone of the visual reflects the lonesome and the single-mindedness which might remind us of falling into the darkest abyss, while the white marks on it looks like sprays from the sea, allegorising whirlpools in the mind during brainstorming. All these imageries relate back to the beliefs that a creative talent holds on to: “Only for the sake of creation – delve into it when the time comes.” 

ifva provides the soil to cultivate creativity, and offers a platform for emerging creative talents to demonstrate their capabilities. The 24th ifva is now calling for entry under five categories: Open, Youth, Animation, Media Art and Asian New Force, inviting short films, animations and media art works from locally and across Asia.
 
The 24th ifva is now calling for entry:
Submission deadline: 15 October, 2018 (Monday), 6:00 p.m.

Live Cinema by Lim Giong and Exhibition of Push Comic’s Works
Lim Giong, recipient of the prestigious 20th National Awards of Art in Taiwan, will perform in a live cinema event that rethinks the relationship between sound and image. Playing neither a supporting nor a supplementary role, live scoring is an ever-evolving conversation between collaborators and their work, between music maker and image maker. Lim’s performance within the context of a moving image exhibition activates an intervening space, broadening the audience experience and exposing all to an unrehearsable chemistry that can only take place live.
 
Haunting Images: Live Cinema by Lim Giong is a Taiwan Arts Festival production co-presented by Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Center, and M+, West Kowloon Cultural District. It features moving image works selected from the M+ Collections; Michael Rogges short films “Rain” (1952) and “Sunrise” (1953); and Brooklyn-based artist Simon Liu’s 16mm dual projection work “Harbour City” (2016). This collaborative live event with Lim Giong revisits Hong Kong and Taiwan’s urban environments of private and collective memory, offering a fresh reimagination of water and harbour, light and shadow, movement and ritual.
 
$200 per ticket, only two shows at MOViE MOViE Cityplaza on 26 & 27 October 2018 8pm. Only a few seats left: https://www.cinema.com.hk/movie/special/12
 
The Quest Game – Exhibition of Push Comic’s Works will be held from 19 October to 20 November at the Experimental Gallery of the Hong Kong Arts Centre. Push Comic (Ah Tui), moniker of a celebrated Taiwanese comics artist, is a man of many roles. He currently engages in multimedia creations and art toys, as well as illustrations and anything that is related to comics or popular street culture.
