The arena is a place of spectacle: stomping ground of gladiator fights and chariot racing. A stage for idols and misfits, where differences are magnified and the audience expects to be comforted and entertained. Chacun joue son rôle.
ARENA emerged from an ingenious brainwave of a group of ambitious students of HKU Fine Art. In the last two years these up-and-coming artists worked together in various formations on collective projects like, among others, two music albums, a few exhibitions, a boxing tournament and a pirate movie. For their show at AG they tap into their shared, largely spontaneous energy to create an adventure, staging and contrasting their individual works in an installation-like setting. Expect some spectacular duelling between paintings, videoworks, sculptures and more.
