錄映太奇將於二月十八日晚上舉辦一場名為《別樣》的香港實驗短片放映會,讓香港觀眾以不一樣的視野窺見一些城市生活中常被忽略的議題。策展人文晶瑩選了四位在香港藝術界具代表性的女性藝術家的實驗短片,以及數位新晉藝術家的動畫及錄像創作,他們的作品以多重視角深入探討城中發生的人與事,帶給觀眾另類體會和感受。

是次放映會是錄映太奇本年度首次呈獻香港藝術家的錄像作品,絕對令人期待。

放映會的主題《別樣》有著「不同」的意思,這個概念除了是是次節目的主題外,也描述了各位邀請藝術家的特質。實驗電影、錄像或新媒體藝術作品,大都與新科技有關。縱使一般人會認為先進的科技都屬於男性範疇,香港過往和現在都有許多女性藝術家創作實驗電影及錄像。不論是他們的性別、社會地位、以及作品風格,都與傳統藝術及主流電影非常不同,正因如此,從他們的作品正正能顯現一種在主流電影之外的「別樣」,令觀眾對日常生活中較少留意到的事物或事件有新的體會,他們將個人私密的經驗轉化成抽象的語彙,卻又不落入傳統敘事的窠臼之中;將層層豐富的經驗世界打開,而不再只是喃喃說著道理,以多重的視角去看城市中的人、景色、科技化的種種。他們細緻的手法還有卓越的想像力,使得這些作品精彩可期。

另外,這次放映會亦特別加插了一些年青藝術家的動畫及錄像作品,這些年輕藝術家關心自我認同的問題,亦喜歡探索生活空間和城市。他們對周遭的環境相當敏感且富有想像力,有時會帶著不安的感覺,在探索過程中跌跌撞撞。這些作品都充滿實驗精神,帶著獨特的自我個性。

Videotage is hosting its first local experimental video screening on 18th February this year. The Other provides a fresh perspective for Hong Kong audience on issues we often neglect or easily overlook amid the busy life of modern cities. The curator - Phoebe Man has selected works from four iconic Hong Kong female artists plus videos and animations by several emerging young local artists for the event.

The theme of the event - The Other means being different – a concept that embodies characteristics all our featured artists proudly hold. Many experimental films, videos and new media artworks are either reflections or products of direct influences of technological development. Despite the presupposed connection between technologies and males, we have witnessed a number of distinguished Hong Kong female experimental video artists and filmmakers who have masterly broken such ideological mold over the years. The artists’ gender, social status, and styles are different from traditional arts and mainstream film productions. These differences make their works the others outside the industry. Their works raise our attention to facts and realities we used to have too many excuses to be insensitive to. The artists transform personal experiences into abstract vocabularies as a form of discussion while not fitting in any kind of grand narratives of ideology; Instead of illustrating theories, they are more willing to show the audience the richness of daily lives. Using delicate techniques and extraordinary imagination, the works are intriguing and filled with unique characters. And it is the combination of all these elements that forms the fascinating side of their works.

The screening also features animations and video works created by new young artists in Hong Kong. These emerging artists are concerned with issue of identities, researches of space and the cities. Filling with imagination and uncertainty, searching by trial and error, each of their work is filled with experimental spirit and unique style.
