The Order of Things
by Videotage
Location: Videotage
Artist(s): Silas FONG, WONG Wing-fat Morgan, Chilai Howard CHENG
Date: 26 Mar - 26 Mar 2011

In The Order of Things, three young Hong Kong artists - Chilai Howard Cheng, Silas Fong, and Morgan Wong Wing-Fat will deliver their new net-based video work through a new format of international exhibition presented by Videotage and Netfilmmakers. The three works will be launched in Hong Kong and Copenhagen simultaneously through live video streaming. Artists, curators, and audience in both Kopenhagen Art Institute and Videotage will be able to exchange ideas and thoughts at the same time.

Hong Kong is a culturally vibrant city. Politically, Hong Kong is part of China but it maintains its integrity as a unique, global metropolis driven by a progressive belief in technological innovation, strong awareness of the potential of new media and the global flow of capital. The 21st edition of Netfilmmakers asks the question of how to understand “order” and structure in the global cultural intersection. This calls for a reflection upon values, identity and history. The three artists represent the young and strong individual voices on the current Hong Kong scene of video and media-art. They have chosen different thematic and conceptual approaches to the project. Each has found a clear, unique and sometimes humorous path.

Chilai Howard Cheng works with the relationship between the conscious and the unconscious. He asks how we create our image of reality and how we think of ourselves in this image. While we understand ourselves in one way, we might actually be governed by another.

Silas Fong playfully investigates the principles of how one finds videos and images in the (dis)order of the internet. In his work he thematises not only how we organise and store images but also how we recall them both personally and technologically.

Morgan Wong Wing-Fat plays with the idea of permutation. Permutation is a process that involves reordering of elements in a given order. An example is an anagram where reordering the letters in a word creates a new word. The process of permutation involves a systematic investigation of possible orders, an artistic practice can
also be understood as a process of permutation.
