About One World Exposition
關於平行世界

Since its foundation in 1986, Videotage has established a reputation, locally and internationally, for its video and new media arts projects. Numerous programs curated in the past not only have mobilized artists, thinkers and audiences to cross the geographical and cultural boarders between Hong Kong and the “world,” but they have also represented the entire spectrum of new media technology. One cannot imagine how many zillions of video frames; image pixels, sound bits, and programming codes have been carried along on air flights and via telephone lines by the projects of our past. Despite these technological languages becoming the basic unit of communication between Videotage and the “world,” the traveling of frames, pixels, bits, and codes also entwines the cultural delineations between the local and the international.

In 2011, with the initial support of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, One World Exposition was successfully presented as a large-scale project umbrella, in collaboration with Asia Art Archive, Hanart TZ Gallery, KEE Club, Osage Art Foundation, School of Creative Media of City University of Hong Kong, and Spring Workshop. One World Exposition brought together internationally recognized media artists from the fields of video, film, lighting, theatre, computer games, and interactive media during a month long program. In addition to the main exhibitions, One World Exposition also presented four special programs, which include Yang Fudong's epic 7-screen installation, The Fifth Night; Feng Mengbo’s commissioned audio-visual project, Bruce Lee VJ Project; and two live performances conducted by Qiu Zhijie, Ellen Pau, Wang Jianwei, and Danny Yung.

To build on the success of the first edition, Videotage joins forces with K11 and presents One World Exposition 2.1 #like4like with an eye towards the future of Chinese media art. One World Exposition 2.1 #like4like will continue to explore Chinese media art from regional, national, and global perspectives. Through a series of talks, an exhibition, and screenings of Chinese media art, this project will assemble the most celebrated millennial Chinese media artists in Hong Kong for the first time.

自1986年成立以來,錄映太奇在本地和國際以視頻和新媒體藝術的項目建立了良好的聲譽。過去無數策展計劃中,不止動員了藝術家、思想家和觀眾跨越香港和「世界」之間的地域和文化界線,與此同時,它們也代表了整個新媒體技術的範疇。人們不能想像在我們過去的項目中,透過航空和電話線傳送了多少百萬像素的視頻影像、圖像、聲音位元和程式碼。儘管這些技術語言成為了錄映太奇和「世界」之間的基本交流單位,但是影像、像素、位元和代碼的傳播也影響了當地和國際之間的文化劃分。

平行世界在2011年獲得香港藝術發展局的支持,成為了一個與亞洲藝術文獻庫、漢雅軒、KEE Club、奧沙藝術基金、香港城市大學邵逸夫創意媒體中心和Spring Workshop合作的大型總體項目。節目集合了影像、電影、燈光、舞台、電子遊戲,以及互動媒體界的國際知名媒體藝術家。除了多個展覽外,平行世界呈獻了4個特備節目,包括楊福東絕倫的7屏視頻裝置,《第五夜》;馮夢波的委託視聽作品,《龍威計劃》;以及由邱志杰、鮑藹倫、汪建偉、以及榮念曾進行的兩個現場表演。

延續第一屆的成功,錄映太奇聯同K11,為你帶來平行世界2.1#like4like,放眼於中國媒體藝術的未來。平行世界2.1#like4like將以從地區、國家和全球的角度,繼續探索中國媒體藝術。透過一系列中國媒體藝術的講座、展覽、以及放映會,這個項目將第一次聚集最著名的千禧世代中國媒體藝術家。
