Kel Lok / 那些玩具 Those Toys [“Toy as Medium” count-down]

Jess Lau / 玩具展 – 下雨天的城堡 A Castle for the Rainy Days: toy show “Toy as Medium”

FP member Kelvin Lam’s “castle on rainy days” and Jess Lau’s “pirates’ boat,” “extreme environments” and “ET arriving” mark many HK children’s fantasy play with space or the lack of it. To reproduce these childhood experiences in FP WIP opening 20 Nov 2016, what are they going to show us?

Andio Lai / Toy as Medium: artistic passion, self expression and the circuits of cultural artifacts 玩具之間:(再)創造熱情、表述、聚疊…以外

A casual chat in a summer afternoon among 3 FP members ignited childhood passion and intellectual curiosity, leading to a toy show in November. “Wai and Kel’s model making involves intense concentration and techniques that parallel … art making,” Andio Lai discovers.

Evelyn Char / 走過泡菜大地(二):韓國光州、1980…2016 Gwangju’s ACC: site of revolt transfigured

Evelyn Char explores South Korea’s biggest state-own Asia Culture Center, which archives art historical documents from various countries in Asia. She discovers that this new national monumental sits right on the former site of the 10-day long Gwuangju (Kwangju) Uprising in 1980 (aka May 18 Democratic Uprising, UNESCO), or Gwangju Democratization Movement.

Vicky Do / Space | power | IDENTITIES: a Review of the image exhibition, “What Do You Want For Tomorrow”

Photographer Vicky Do reviews “What Do You Want For Tomorrow” (2016.08.10-2016.09.26, HK Heritage Museum) curated by Wong Wo-bik and Stella Tang. She finds this 12-woman art event more than a photography show or one that tokenizes women.

WONG Fuk-kuen /《現在進行》一思再思 Present Continuous: still thinking…

Critique, review, critique, self-discovery, artistic experimentation, critique, articulation, self-discovery… Wong Fuk-kuen finds himself in this recurrent routine Floating Projects highly values. Extreme modes of artistic exploration of things in our physical world often push us (him) in the direction of science… Danger, Wong finds, is the unique interface he generates in his exploration.

Evelyn Char / 走過泡菜大地(一):韓國光州及首爾的藝旅勾描,光州雙年展以外 Art in Gwangju and Seoul beyond the biennales

A deliberate dual emphasis on domestic artists and international stars, the care for documentation and criticism as regular agenda items, and growing experiments on alternative independent art-space models from within the art community… Evelyn Char notes her observation in a recent art tour to Gwangju and Seoul.
