【你這剎那在何方 life is elsewhere: you know where to find me】

 

你這剎那在何方是「藝術而立」計劃的展覽,將於 2022 年 11 月 25 日至 2023 年1月 31 日展出莫頌靈的作品。

 

計劃由一名藝術家、一名策展人,及一名研究員組成,旨在為處於職業生涯中期的藝術家持續舉辦一系列的個人展覽和編撰學術刊物,以回應香港缺乏生涯中期回顧展,及本地藝術研究和記錄的現況,以促進和鼓勵長期的藝術實踐。

 

莫頌靈近十年的作品都是以攝影、電影和錄像作為主要創作媒介。這些創作非常依賴她所參與的駐場計劃的人和地所能提供的支持和資源,而且往往需要在一個特定的短時間內把作品完成。從這角度而言,她的作品基本上可以被視為是對她那些經驗和環境的一種直觀回應。於是乎海上的旅程、北歐的深山、日本商店的舊街都通通能成為她作品的內容或題材。

The exhibition of the Mid-Career project, life is elsewhere: you know where to find me, will take place from 25 Nov 2022 to 31 Jan 2023 and will be presenting artwork by artist Jolene Mok.

 

Mid-Career calls for a trio group composed of an artist, a curator and a researcher to participate in the Artist Exhibition & Publication Series. In response to the shortage of mid-career retrospectives in Hong Kong and the need of documenting and researching the local art ecology, aim to initiate a long-term commitment to a series of comprehensive solo exhibitions and high-quality publications dedicated to mid-career artists.

 

Photography, film and video have been the chief media of Jolene’s works in the past decade. These creations relied heavily on the support and resources provided by the people and places of the residency programmes she participated in, and often had to be completed within a specific time limit. In this sense, her works can basically be seen as an intuitive response to her experiences and surroundings. Hence, journeys on the sea, Scandinavian mountains, shopping arcades in Japan can all become the subject of her works.
