Artists have always taken inspiration from works all across the world, even those a few oceans away. The resulting works are often dynamic interpretations that facilitate transnational dialogue. To celebrate international cultural exchange between the UK and Hong Kong, the Peer to Peer: UK/HK Online Festival has launched an online exhibition of new and existing digital artwork from UK and Hong Kong based artists from Wed 11 November to Sun 13 December 2020.

It is led by independent Hong Kong based curator Ying Kwok, University of Salford Art Collection, Open Eye Gallery and Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) and consists of a network of contemporary visual arts organisations across the UK and Hong Kong.

「縱觀歷史,黑人同性戀和跨性別人士在檔案中一直被刪除。正因如此,現在非但要紀錄我們的存在,同時為分享我們的經驗,必須紀錄許多我們正在使用和會繼續使用的創造性敘事。 Danielle Brathwaite -Shirley

“Throughout history, Black queer and Trans people have been erased from the archives. Because of this it is necessary not only to archive our existence, but also the many creative narratives we have used and continue to use to share our experiences.” Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley

Artwork: Choi Sai Ho, Space Within Space, 2019, Media Art, Video Art, Sound Art (still)

「如果沒有文明,沒有光污染,這個星球就不會像今天的地球。站在同一位置仰望星空,太空會是怎樣的? 即使在另一個時空或多重宇宙中,地球可能會偏離當前軌道,或者根本不存在。 這個空間聽起來像什麼? 」– 蔡世豪

“If there is no civilization, no light pollution, the planet is not like the Earth nowadays, standing at the same location, looking up the starry sky, what does the space look like? Even in another time and space, or multiverse, the Earth may deviate from the current orbit, or it may not exist at all. What does the space sound like?” Choi Sai Ho
