ISEA 2016 Hong Kong Cultural R>evolution, R<connecting Senses.
|Venue:||Connecting Space, Hong Kong|
Within the gallery, Connecting Space Hong Kong, a special form of cooperation will emerge between the artists-in-labs program of the Zurich University of the Arts, which promotes collaborations between artists and scientists of all disciplines, and ISEA. The collaboration between three artists from Switzerland chosen by Irčne Hediger and three artworks juried by ISEA will function as a laboratory for the exchange of practices, strategies and situated knowledge to be found among the artists of the exhibition and visitors to ISEA. Connecting Spaces will host these intercultural and transdisciplinary encounters focusing around creative production and methodologies that cross borders to connect art and science.
"Oscillating between kinetic mechanics, material collages and poetic acoustics, the selected group of artists shared an interest in experimental concepts and transdisciplinary encounters. The exhibition of installed works is a laboratory enriched by discussions and performances, with Brass Art, Pe Lang, Takuma Takahashi + Shugo Hirao, Ip Yuk-Yiu, Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri and Nicole Ottiger."
