即日上映: 電影無處不在| NOW SHOWING: LIFE THROUGH FILM

電影提供娛樂,慰藉我們的心靈,啓發我們發現未來的可能; 同時亦能捕捉我們的痛苦與失落,反影現實的殘酷與絕望。凱倫偉伯畫廊在「即日上映」展覽中,展出十一位本地藝術家的作品,探索自己和電影的關係。

Films entertain, comfort our spirits, uncover new possibilities; on the other hand, some may poignantly capture pain and sorrow, reflecting harsh realities. ‘Now Showing’ in Karin Weber Gallery features eleven Hong Kong artists that reflect their personal feelings and experiences via film.

十一位本地藝術家均借電影來創作,電影可能帶給他/她們回憶,付予人生的意義和創作靈感。所涵蓋電影類型廣闊,這些電影與藝術家的成長過程扮演重要角色,或者反映出近廿年在香港出現的重大轉變。有時候電影更對未來作出準確的預言,很多八十年代出現的港產電影譬如《省港旗兵》(1984),凸出了香港跟中國大陸的文化衝突,一個操粵語一個操普通話。

The eleven local Hong Kong artists participating in ’Now Showing’ have all selected a film that is the most memorable or meaningful to them, as the source of their inspiration. The chosen films cover a wide variety of genres, reflecting the artists’ upbringing or significant historical changes within Hong Kong. To the surprise of many of the artists, their films have frequently captured the essence of certain life moments and, in some cases, hint at historical conflicts — for example, some of the Hong Kong movies made in the 1980s such as Long Arm Of the Law (1984) highlight the culture clash between Cantonese speakers in Hong Kong and Mandarin speakers in mainland China.
