Artist sharing by PageNEXT Resident Chi Po-hao.
Taiwan-based sound artist and musician Chi Po-hao has explored Hong Kong via routes designed by PageNEXT members, as part of a one-month collaborative exchange programme with Bamboo Curtain Studio. The artist will share his observations, including the creative process during his residency, how he connects with the local environment, and the influences on himself and his artistic development. There will also be a Q&A session.
Chi Po-hao holds an MA in Music from Goldsmiths College, University of London, and a BA in Economics from National Taiwan University. His primary medium is sound, principally involving, but not limited to, live electronic, electroacoustic composition, and installation. Chi often applies self-made tools and found objects based on electronic devices, everyday materials, and junk in live performances. He was granted residencies at V2_Institute for the Unstable Media, Rotterdam and at Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris. He has performed on tour in Beijing, Hong Kong, Lanzhou, London, Manchester, Paris, Rotterdam, Taipei, Wales, and Yinchuan.
PageNEXT consists of local university students and graduates with a passion for art and social issues. The AAA volunteer group actively organises art programmes for peers to encourage new thinking in contemporary art and to explore the role of art in society.
The Bamboo Curtain Studio (BCS) in Taiwan aims to promote cross-cultural exchange by providing a meeting point for visitors from national and international art-related fields. It endeavours to promote these exchanges by lifting barriers and providing a creative environment for production and residencies—serving artists in the research, testing, and trial-runs of their products and services.
Things that can happen is a non-profit art space located in the historic district of Sham Shui Po, Kowloon, in the heart of Hong Kong. 'Things' aims to provide a platform for open experimentation and dialogue in response to the rapidly changing social, political, and cultural context of our city.
