No References: A Revisit of Hong Kong Video and Media Art from 1985


The development of the contemporary art scene in Hong Kong is inextricably linked to the development of media art. Using the institutional history of Videotage as an alternative guiding chronology, this exhibition attempts to look back, reflect and re-evaluate Hong Kong’s media art from a critical historical perspective.

Presenting works by pioneering video artists who have attempted to inspire each other in their collective goal of developing media art in Hong Kong forms the point of departure for the exhibition. The works display both interpersonal inspiration and independent creativity that manifest themselves in a transgressive historical consciousness – one that transcends the limits of media as well as personal and social boundaries. Adopting an investigative archival approach, this exhibition also discusses about the event of documenting media works as a “re-mediatizing” process.
