Exhibition Curator's Statement
Project Curator: Movana Chen
Artists: Hung Keung, Sara Tse, Tunni Kraus, Daisuke Takeya
This exhibition will explore the influence of new digital communication methods on the way we form our identity, create and sustain relationships and how we think and feel. The collaborative process involves each artist and the curator being actively involved in both the creation and dialogue associated with each installation. Together, they investigate the role of traditional and new forms of conversation in a multilingual and culturally diverse city. These interactions trigger sensitive questions about how we express ourselves, how we are being understood and how we create and sustain meaningful connections.
Oi! is a Grade II historic building that was built in 1908 as the clubhouse of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club. Its name links the ideas behind it with its location: Oi! sounds similar to the address in Cantonese and conveys a call for people's attention while providing a platform where they can realise their dreams in art.
Oi! will work closely together with the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre, its sister organisation under the Art Promotion Office. Representing the vertical axis, the VAC will continue to provide art training programmes for the public to further their artistic development, while Oi! as the horizontal axis will explore the possibilities of experimenting in art by providing space for projects that can inspire creativity and organising programmes that engage the public.
