3D GALLERY

“Whose Responsibility” is a site-specific art exhibition to let curatorial teams, artists and audiences experience an exhibition about exhibiting. Artist DonnaYuen utilizes the white walls of galleries in the venues that are managed by the public sector. This action is intended to bring the existing white-cube’s structure and power into an experimental space. Independent art spaces are prevalent in Hong Kong. The operating mode and scale have somehow changed. A small-scale exhibition involves specific roles for its operation but the people required can be just a few. A blurred area may occur between the overlapping identities and roles. How can the impact of each role affect the exhibition? 

 

Four artists with different professional backgrounds have been invited to this experimental art exhibition. They are site-contractor Denfil Chong, artist Justin Chow, curator Jeff Leung and project director Red Chan. Using/ Applying the same concepts and materials provided in the venue, the four different parties execute their artwork based on their different professions during the same period of time. This experimental art exhibition aims to explore the possibilities of the development of contemporary art in Hong Kong by experiencing the independent yet interlocking power from different parties; the clear and also fuzzy areas created from different roles in an art exhibition.

 

Fringe Club has become a vibrant contemporary arts space where artists create and show their work, and for those who enjoy the arts to gather and see shows. Facilities for exhibitions and performances here are offered rent-free to both emerging and professional artists in Hong Kong and from overseas. “Fringe” means outer edge or peripheral; “穗” is a Chinese word which means the bristle like growth from the kernel of a cereal plant. Fringe Club is committed to help artists get started and continue to develop in their profession. It aims to create an experimental, innovative and unusual art space.


「邊個負責」是呼應特定場域的藝術展覽,讓策展團隊、藝術家及觀眾體驗一個關於展覽的展覽。藝術家袁敏曦收集於公營機構管理下展覽場地的白牆灰,欲把白盒子既有的架構與權力帶到實驗性的空間。隨著獨立藝術空間在香港相繼開幕與營運,當代藝術展覽的模式與規模都有所改變。一個小型藝術展覽的發生,在製作團隊中所分配的角色很多,涉及的人卻可以很少。身份的重疊可會令角色模糊?權力的輕重如何影響展覽?

 

是次藝術實驗邀請四位不同身份包括場地承建商莊永恆、藝術家周文慶、策展人梁展峰及項目總監陳嘉豪,同一時間內於對等的空間,以不同範疇的專業對相同概念與物料下作展示。在權力的獨立與互相緊扣之間;在身份角色清晰與模糊之間,探討香港當代藝術發展的可能性。

 

藝穗會(Fringe Club)是一個當代的藝術空間,為香港或海外藝術家提供免租金的展覽及表演場地同時也為藝術愛好者提供一處共聚和欣賞節目的地方。「Fringe」意指邊緣;「穗」代表著穀類植物初生,藝穗會以致力幫助藝術家起步為宗旨,建立起一個實驗性、創新、另類的藝術空間。
