Para Site 艺术空间及香港歌德学院欣然呈现《 *㔷埋儿童节》,由张乐泓及秦文娟共同策划,将于2018年6月16日至7月31日于香港歌德学院展出。本展为两机构首次合作的新晋策展人计划,从历届Para Site新锐艺术人才工作坊的参加成员的展览征件中遴选而出。《*㔷埋儿童节》从对香港儿童节的质疑论调展开,构筑一个给予成人的另类“儿童节”,重新梳理此节庆的目的和意义,挑战其背后隐喻的既有权力结构。参展艺术家包括阿乐、陈翊朗、郑婷婷、陆平原、山河跳!及黄炳。


香港儿童节向来不受社会大众的重视,但每年4月4日仍为约定俗成的节日。多年以来,成人一直扮演儿童节的决断者,儿童则降格成这节日形式的被动受众。《 *㔷埋儿童节》旨在揭露和审视这个节日在保障和争取儿童权益及福祉的目标下的失效性。为强调此根本性的缺陷,展览通过七名来自不同背景的艺术家的创作,尝试回应和讨论围绕此问题延伸下的本质论述,借此隐喻其他官方公共庆典的虚伪。

Para Site and Goethe-Institut Hongkong are delighted to present *underground-children-festival, an exhibition curated by Jens Cheung and Jill Angel Chun, on view at Goethe-Institut Hongkong from June 16 to July 31, 2018. This exhibition is the first joint-project by the two institutions supporting emerging curators, selected through an open call from alumni of Para Site's Emerging Art Professionals program over the past three years. Featuring newly commissioned and existing works by Luke Casey, Oscar Chan Yik Long, Cheng Ting Ting,Lu Pingyuan, Mountain River Jump!, and Wong Ping, *underground-children-festival takes Children’s Day in Hong Kong as its departure point, playfully exploiting contradictions within the festival’s intentions to reveal and to challenge its ingrained power structures. 


Although rarely observed, Hong Kong Children’s Day takes place on April 4 each year. For many years, children have been subjected to commemorative activities and events with adults being the ultimate decision makers and de facto authorities governing the day’s events. This exhibition explores the impossibility of this festival to fully proclaim children’s rights and to celebrate their autonomy. Addressing this fundamental flaw, through the works of these seven artists, *underground-children-festival seeks to illustrate the absurdity of this day, as a metaphor for the hypocrisy of other officially mandated public celebrations.

关于作品  About Work



山河跳!Mountain River Jump! 

愚者之蛋占法双屏占卜  The Fool: Egg Divination

视频装置,录像长度 6'2",6'8",16:9,彩色,无声,循环

Duel-channel divination video installation, duration of the videos: 6'2", 6'8", 16:9, color, silent, looped


山河跳!全新委托作品是基于与新生象征有关联的民间仪式,提取神话、传媒、习俗、日常及宗教中的“蛋”元素进行演绎。作品邀请观者对快速变换影像的双频录像拍照,成为蛋占仪式的参与者。录像中的每张影像,各带有一个占象,同时是参照不同文化、节庆及社会与政治意味而制作。作品搜罗日常周遭的可象征事物,呈现单个事件所预示的无限结果与可能性。


This newly commissioned work is based on the artist duo’s varying and wide-ranging interpretation of eggs. The work draws inspiration from the folk ceremonies related to this symbol for new life, which captures elements of mythologies, mass media, customary, daily life and religions. The work invites viewers to photograph the fast-moving images on the screen, and partake in an act of ritual egg divination. Each image will consist of a ‘divine reading’, composed of references to different cultures, festive ceremonies and socio-political implications. This work is a vast collection of symbols found in daily surroundings, and presents an unlimited set of outcomes and possibilities from a singular event.
