“Performative Doc” is a contemporary form of documentary, which stresses an active participation of the filmmaker in the film, leading the audience through cinematic expressions and performative intervention with personal perspectives. In the exhibition, we invite the audience to experience the movement, spatial, audio and performative connection of the curated path which juxtapose with the static observation of the work. To open up a new platform to rethink this parallel connection and correlation, “Performative Doc” unfolds in ways of screenings and exhibition in order to demonstrate a constructive dialogue between different art practices and suggest a diverse viewing experience to the audience.
The exhibition “Expanded Space” relates to the concept of “Expanded Cinema”. By opening up and re-examining the framework of cinematic screening, we hope to explore new possibilities and potentialities to extend our moving image programme, not limiting to cinema presentation, providing a new sensory experience for the audience. The context of the exhibition can be regarded as an expanded space to the screening program, offering an immersive perception and extended discussion, looking into integration and expansion for interdisciplinary approaches such as visual and sound installation, multiple projections and other new systems of presentation in the gallery context.
展覽名稱 「擴展的空間」借用 「擴延電影」的概念 － 影像不限於電影院的放映，而能延伸至藝術空間，產生另一種觀影經驗。展覽結合多位本地年輕藝術家與創作者的影像作品，以各類方式如錄像裝置及多重投影等來實踐擴延電影，讓影像能在展覽空間內鋪展。展覽可視作放映單元的擴延空間，提供沉浸式的多感官體驗並延展討論。我們不只是觀看靜態的作品，而是如同步進流動的空間，體悟影像與表演性的結合。

Throughout their residency at Eaton, the group relinquish their own practice and adopt each other’s ways of observation, ideation and creation, hence imagine themselves as travelers exploring strange land with a foreign scope.
In the exhibition, ‘object’ is the incognito protagonist emerging from the mundane everyday scenario, they speak loudly to reveal the alienated aspects of the surrounding neighborhood, to act as the mediator of the ‘situations’ we engaged in. The artworks form a network of object, each of them complements the others, opening up a space for continuation of the fragmentized narrative embedded.

We evaluate our world based on results, but we often fail to see the movements comprising each action that create these results. Movements are transitory and ephemeral, lost in time and always progressing. The movement never really ends.
This new series of work entitled Manifest Ephemeral by Ophelia Jacarini captures movements; suspending choreography and dance into sculptural installation and photography.
As Eaton turns 2 along with 30 years of legacy, Tomorrow Maybe transform into a time capsule exhibiting some of the rare found images and footages taken throughout it all. We honour the spirit of friends and partnership!

"This is my last exhibition before I leave Hong Kong to study in the UK. Therefore, I selected a variety of works to make a summary. Some are more life-oriented and some are more abstract. I always believe that the works reflect what I usually think, see, what kind of person I am, and this exhibition describes me from the shallower to the deeper, from life to personal thoughts to personal feelings." -- Lean
Lean’s photographs bare the innocence of a teenager but the distance and awareness of someone with far more lived years. One is drawn into the childlike world created by the artist, a world soft to the touch and tender, balanced with curiosity and honesty that embraces and upholds the spaces, objects and people she captures. While her works are polished, and the worlds inhabited seem pristine, Lean’s subjects are not immune to emotional and physical pain. What she shows is the resilience they embody as life gently leaves its imprints.

Greek philosopher Heraclitus had a famous analogy about life: "You cannot step twice into the same river". Time cannot travel backward, everything is always in a state of becoming. The only certainty is change, as such each moment is unique. During the process of making animation, with the help of software and tools, characters can flow fluidly back and forth in time, as though existing beyond time itself. Travelling between dimensions, pasts and futures and grabbing hold of the most precious moments, the ending has always already been drawn out for the animation characters. In “reality” we are unable to see the future and there is no way of reading the script of our lives. We are part of the current of time. There is a feeling that our destiny, unfinished, is still to be written.
Is this true? Are our destinies still to be written out? Or do we live in this illusion?
Lo Lai Lai Natalie's solo exhibition “Give no words but mum,” featuring her moving image and installation works of the past two years that portray her inexplicably dependent relationship with plants. The most recent works include a personal private underground TV station “Slow-so TV: Give no words but mum” that continues to serve distracted audiences and provides them with programs to pass the time. Thoughts, uprooted together with the plants from the earth, the fine debris serenely scattered about, calmly reveal long-suppressed desires and obsessions.⠀

South Korean-born German philosopher Byung-Chul Han quoted an example to explain Giorgio Agamben’s concept of ‘profanation’: During the recession period in Greece, a group of children discovered a large amount of banknotes in a ruined house. Instead of using them in the way money is supposed to be used, they started playing with it, tearing it to shreds. Profanation is an act of taking sacred things and turning them into mortal usage. By quoting this example, Han portrays a post-apocalyptic world where money has lost its meaning, and we are shredding paper for fun, like the act of ‘profanation’ by the children.

Gummy candies are soft, gelatin-based chewable sweets. Gummies has a high water content, are available in a wide variety of flavors, and its shape, size, texture are easily manipulable depending on one’s desire and needs. Due to its high sugar content, gummy candies are very high in energy (a.k.a. calories).
By using the colorful and shape-shifting gummies as the point of entry, their works explore themes such as artificial bodies, beauty, corporeal desire, resistance, fluidity, and flexibility.

The multi-component show includes new sculptural, sonic, architectural, and two-dimensional work. It continues Ho’s investigation into the perils and potentials of transnationalism. The topic resonates with the artist, who since 2016 has with greater frequency returned to Hong Kong after living and working in the States for several decades. The exhibition draws reference from political histories, transnational desires and infrastructures that mediate our travel, both consciously and unconsciously experienced.

Being good means acting the same perfect way — but there are so many ways to be bad. Creativity and genius can be bad. Fluidity and queerness can be bad. Enjoyment and exuberance can be bad. For Father and Mother, even autonomy and independence can be bad.
Society normalizes our bodies to make sure we are good. We’d rather take flight in being bad. Just as the mechanisms of life have evolved by hacking our genetics with bad copies, we will use our bad bodies to hack the hegemonic systems of patriarchy, hetero-, and homo-normativity.

Fragrant Little Haven takes a description from Geoffrey Robley Sayer. Hong Kong, means fragrant harbour in Chinese, was only a name of a village at the south of Hong Kong Island before the English came. It was a harbour for transporting the luxury Aquilaria sinensis trees, which produces agarwood, a valuable fragrant wood used for incense and medicine. One and half centuries have past, the artist found out that at least 180 streets in Hong Kong were named after plants.

As a photographer, Siu Wai Hang’s practice explores the fundamentals of the medium of photography, while creating social and historical commentary. In this intimate show, Tomorrow Maybe provided an entry point into the artist’s ongoing examination into the medium particularly with time, as experienced, as perceived, both subjectively and collectively, and represented through form.
The exhibition includes notes from Zheng Mahler current research on a virtual history of opium in South East Asia, and transcripts from a forthcoming publication on psychedelics and technology catalysed during their residency at Eaton HK. Taking its cue from Thomas De Quincey’s 1821 text, ‘Confessions of an English Opium Eater,’ the virtual reality experience transports the viewer into a phantasmagoric ‘opium dream’ through various moment’s in the history of opium.
