《床下底》分享會於2013年12月正式開始,至今已運作三年多。共有近三十位藝術家參與。《床下底》分享會的目的,旨在透過藝術家直接分享,希望可以讓觀眾了解藝術家拍片的創作理念、內容、製作過程、遇到困難、擱置床下底的原因,到最終又決定公開展示的理由。這種小規模的分發討論,往往能帶出「想當年」的社會文化狀態,及現今的狀態相比較,提高對本地歷史文化的了解及理解。負責分享的藝術家經常有意無意「爆料」,觀眾又有時提問尖銳,令《床下底》分享會成為一個不定期的交流聚腳點。

《床下底》分享會的進行形式會因時、因事、因人而彈性改變。2017年3月份的《床下底》藝術家是已移民加拿大的韓偉康。我們首次以預先錄製方式,再將整段記錄進行播放分享。

韓偉康是本地80、90年代活躍藝術家,以繪畫、混合媒介為主,亦活躍於劇場。是多元化、多棲、肯探索、肯顛覆、肯嘗試、肯肯定是一個藝術家。2017年1月,C & G到了加拿大溫哥,與他一聚,並進行預先錄製,雖說錄製,但都有近十位人士參與,並積極發問及交流,內容甚可觀。韓偉康播放多段約二十多年前的VHS錄像,有他剛開始到加拿大「搵屋住」的情況、在加拿大生活情況、移民後回港與香港藝術波友踢足球情況、還有曾經的「極度重犯」……

今次未能請到藝術家韓偉康親臨解畫,但C&G也會分享上月的溫哥華交流之旅和當中感悟: 有感當年(89後)選擇捨棄藝術,或準確點說: 選擇捨棄藝術制度的藝術家,與今天傘後走上同樣思考的藝術朋友都有許多相似之處 ⋯⋯ 其實歷史一直在重覆..

本月《床下底》分享會於2017年3月8日(星期三)晚上八時開始,至九時許,歡迎到來參觀、欣賞、交流。


Since the first screening in December 2013, there have been more than 30 artists participating in “Under-The-Bed" events at C&G Artpartment in the past three years. The screening and sharing session aims to invite artists to show their video works that have never or seldom been publicly screened (for whatever reasons), and to share the work’s concept, content, making-of, difficulties during production and reasons for keeping it under-the-bed. The videos from under-the-bed, often can intrigue many questions about the cultural and art ecology in the old days.

The sharing session’s format is a bit different this time. Since the invited artist, Josh HON, is not in Hong Kong, the best we can do is to screen the documentation of a previous cozy and intimate sharing session with Josh Hon in Vancouver during Feb 2017. The content is still intriguing and inspiring, since Josh had genuinely shared his thoughts about art and society, after the screening of video clips about his previous trip in search of “Hope,” his daily life in the earlier days after emigration, and an important footage about the “most-wanted man” taken in 1996…

有關2015年的床下底分享會:
「床下底」系列之分享會活動已舉辦了十多次,2015年1月我們邀請了藝術家李慧嫻,為大家分享她在十多年前參加了一個同名為「床下底」的藝術展覽。當年的「床下底」展覽之策展人Sharon Smith, 對「床下底」的詮釋,與C&G的看法大概相同。她鼓勵當時參展的藝術家展出一些因各種原因沒有公開展示的作品。有趣的是,Sharon Smith本人也是藝術家,亦有參與展出,與身份「雜崩lung」的C&G同樣,都是以藝術創作人的角度開始策展的方向。2015年2月份我們邀請了本地視覺藝術界「小生」羅文樂作主講嘉賓,請他以點題式分享其過往的海外交流及進修經驗,並延伸到他最近在巴西作駐埸藝術家的經驗。在過去的海外交流之中,他都不忘從多角度,把香港的狀況與不同地方的藝術生態作比較和分析,提出我們極需要盡快提升對文明的想像,希望香港可從文化的根本作出徹底的改革。三月份的床下底則邀請了Ivanov + Chan訴說其藝術遊牧的故事,他們在蘇格蘭的一個小島上舉辦Papay Gyro Nights Festival (巴比齋魯之夜 北歐藝術節(巨大娘節)) , 嘗試重新解讀和再次呈現這神秘小島的故事,並把當中的節目帶到香港,與觀眾分享如何把文化傳統在當代中伸延。

四月分享會中,杜煥講述年青時的藝術創作、 油街的陰森氣氛和藝術公社的前傳。他於九十年代初跟友人,在西環夾租了一個工廠單位作為工作室。「床下底分享會」播出他們在這單位的一個即興藝術夜之紀錄片段,當中, 各人以身體、聲音、裝置、光效等元素在那仍然多塵、髒亂的空間,不斷互動,營造出一個十分真實的超現實場域。年青觀眾的回應是,「哇,那時,已經有些如此前衛的東西!好正啊!」另外,被問及當年有沒有想關於藝術市場的事宜,杜煥簡單地答:「無。」,也解釋「當年個市真係好好」,根本不用擔心生計, 於是工餘便是做自己喜歡的東西:藝術創作。 近年,杜煥自學吹糖,以最天然的糖,吹出千變萬化的動物,並自製了一套十分精緻的熱糖器,有空時,便在長州街頭吹糖:「小孩子經過,想要糖時,我就請他即時表演,以交換我的動物糖果。」

在杜煥的分享中,觀眾感受到藝術家如何順「道」而行,把藝術融入生活之中。

六月,三木(陳式森),為觀眾分享他在八、九十年代在香港、廣州、日本等地的創作和經歷。如有興趣重溫當中的眾多故事,可瀏覽《三木 之 床下底分享會 的 口述記錄概要》

而七月,則有另一位有不少行為藝術創作的藝術家:梁寶山,也分享她的床下底珍藏,主題為:《有恩報恩──梁寶山的missed opportunities》。以下乃藝術家的話:

「選在七月來為自己的人生來個中期報告。我從已捐贈給亞洲藝術文獻庫的幾個箱子,與仍存在床下底的雜物中,翻出了幾個人生的遺撼。有時回想,要是當時能聰明而不衝動,或許事情便會有更好的轉機。這些已經時過景遷的往事,趁着未至無跡可尋,就當是為香港藝術留一點註腳吧。分享會將翻出與以下人、事相關的物品,與大家分享:廿豆‧盒子畫、artist regional exchange 5 、信報文化版、Para/Site、伙炭2004 …...等等。」

在九月和十月,C&G 把過去一些床下底分享會的影片帶到去《策你老毛》後, C&G於十一月作了個小休,再在十二月,邀請了楊陽分享。她把多年前做電視新聞記者的片段拿出來與大家分享,細說當年的所見所聞以及如何影響她之後的工作。

About previous sharing sessions in 2015:
C&G has hosted more than ten sessions of “Under The Bed” events in the past year, involving more than thirty local artists. We invited Ms. Rosanna Li in Jan 2015 to share with us an exhibition with the same title, “Under The Bed,” that took place a decade ago. The interpretation of the title ‘under the bed’ by curator, Sharon Smith, is similar with that by C&G. Smith encouraged participating artists to exhibit artworks that seldom or never shown in public, for whatever reasons. It was interesting to learn that Sharon Smith was also one of the participating artists. Similar to C&G, she had hybrid identities (being both artist and curator), and was interested in beginning her curatorial path from the perspective of an artist. In February 2015, we invited LAW Man Lok as our guest speaker to share about his experiences from different overseas studies and exchanges. He began with his first art trip from the past and slowly walked us through his journey until his recent trip to Brazil. Through comparison and analysis, he attempted to find out some important reference points for the Hong Kong art circle to study, and emphasized that the imagination of civilization must be opened up, in order to have revolutionary changes amongst ourselves in a long run.

For March 2015, C&G Artpartment invited 'Ivanov + Chan' to share their nomadic stories in the arts. Ivanov + Chan is an artist couple with a nomadic life. Chan, Tszman Chan, grew up in Hong Kong and went to London to study art ten years ago. Once, she pursued her art career around London, with Ivanov who is originally from Scotland. Later on, they decided to move further and further, and finally settled down at Papa Westray which is a small island with population less than a hundred. At Papa, they started to explore the long forgotten stories and traditions of the island, and curate Papay Gyro Nights Festival to help the contemporaries to re-discover the culture “under-the-bed.”

The sharing session in April was about To Wun’s art-making twenty years ago, about horrifying atmosphere of Oil Street and the birth of Artist Commune (a local artist-run-space that was shut down in 2012). To Wun and friends rent a factory unit in Sai Wan as their shared studio in the 1990s. One of the videos shown at the sharing session was the documentation of a happening art night at this studio, with different artists improvising with each other, using sound, lights, body movements and ready-made objects. It was especially inspiring for young audience to learn about how different alternative art forms took place in this city back then. Being asked if he had any consideration about the art market, To Wun’s reply was simple, “No.” He explained that the economy was generally very good in the 90s. Making a living in this city was not difficult at all. After work, he could just spend his spare money and time to do what he liked: making art. Recently, To Wun self-learnt candy-blowing techniques and custom-made a candy heating set. Nowadays, from time to time, on Cheung Chau’s street, one can see To Wun inviting children to perform, in order to exchange an animal candy by him.

In To Wun’s sharing, audience could see how an artist follow the Taoist ‘Way’ throughout his path, and how art engages life.

Afterward, “Under the Bed” Sharing had a break in May, for “International Sick Leave Day.”

In June, 2015, Sanmu Chan, a very experienced artist in the field of performance art, shared with us his previous works and experiences in the 1980s and 90s in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Japan etc. For those who are interested in reading his stories, welcome to check out "The summary of Sanmu's sharing" (http://www.candg-artpartment.com/gallery/review_sanmu.html) (in Chinese only for the moment).

For July, 2015, another artist, LEUNG Po-shan, Anthony who also has had many performance art pieces, shared her "under-the-bed" stories with us, with the theme being "Missed Opportunities of LEUNG Po-shan":

"I've chosen July to be the month for my mid-term report in life. A few regrets were digged out, amongst the boxes I donated to AAA and the mess under the bed. Sometimes, I wonder: what if I were smarter or had held back a bit back then? Would things be better? It'd be nice to preserve these old stories as a footnote for the arts in Hong Kong, before they disappear completely. Some old objects related to the following people and events will be shared in the up-coming session: 20 beans, artist regional exchange 5, culture news in Hong Kong Economic Journal, Para/site, Fotanian 2004 ... etc. "

For those who are interested in reviewing Leung Po Shan's stories again, welcome to check out "The summary of Sanmu's sharing" (http://www.candg-artpartment.com/gallery/review_leungpo.html) (in Chinese only for the moment).

In September and October, C&G brought some videos from previous 'Under The Bed' sharing sessions to "Curate No More" exhibition series. In the last month of 2015, we had Yang YEUNG sharing videos with her being a television journalist around the year of 1997. The summary of her sharing will be launched here later. Please stay tuned!
