      Artist Izumi Kato, Wataru Yamakami@Wamono Art & in the studio: CCOHK's "Shark Symphony"

      Sharks were swimming in our seas more than 430 million years before the first humans appeared. It’s fair to say that as a species we pretty quickly developed a wary attitude towards them. The fact is though that we’re a far bigger threat to them than they are to us. And that’s the subject of a recently premiered local musical production “Shark Symphony”. We’ll be talking to two of its creators in part two. Japanese artist Izumi Kato, who grew up in the coastal area of the Shimane prefecture in Western Japan. It’s the myths and folklore of that area that provide the inspiration for the humanoid figures in his work.

      Japanese artist Wataru Yamakami says that ever since he was a child, he’s had doubts about reality, as well as fears that everything that happens in this world may be a trick or a fiction. Here at the wamono art gallery we’re currently getting the opportunity to step into Yamakami’s “World Of The World”.

    • "Tong1Fong4"@Karin Weber, Trevor Yeung@Parasite & in the studio: saxophonist Timothy Wan

      You may remember that a couple of months ago, The Works featured “Fountain de Chopin” a platform to promote, and increase interest in, jazz music. One of its founders, saxophonist Timothy Wan will be with us later to introduce some original music he’s working on right now. But before that we begin with new work in the visual arts.
      At the Karin Weber Gallery In February and early March a group of young Hong Kong artists presented works focusing on a subject that’s always a priority here: finding somewhere to live in and create a home. The exhibition was titled “tong fong” which means sub-divided flats. In the show, the five artists taking part explored ideas of home and household objects. We spoke to two of them.

      As you step into the gallery space of Para Site, you'll be immediately captivated by the extraordinary centrepiece of the “Soft breath” exhibition. Using soap as his material, Trevor Yeung has re-created a tree trunk from London’s Hampstead Heath that formerly achieved notoriety for its use for then-illicit sexual liaisons. Yeung uses the oak tree trunk to highlight the unspoken language of public sex. The show runs until the 26th May. And Yeung is now representing Hong Kong at the 60th Venice Biennale.

    • Exhibition “One to Ten”, “Green Snake: women-centred ecologies” @Tai Kwun & in the studio: Gabriel Kwok, Head of Keyboard Studies of Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts

      Exhibition “One to Ten”, “Green Snake: women-centred ecologies” @Tai Kwun & in the studio: Gabriel Kwok, Head of Keyboard Studies of Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts

      The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, it’s presenting the exhibition “One to Ten”, featuring ten former students, to highlight the achievements of its alumni in the design industry. Visitors will be guided through a range of design disciplines, including lighting design, product design, industrial design, architectural design, communication design, design management, automotive design, Chinese culture-inspired design and brand identity design. The exhibition will incorporate physical and digital elements such as text, images and sounds, as well as interactive and virtual reality components. Together, these elements will illuminate the design concepts and processes of each alumnus, highlighting the creativity, innovation and impact of PolyU design school alumni.

      The exhibition “Green Snake: women-centred ecologies”, focuses on art by women as its name suggests. It draws on the potency and symbolism of the snake in the myths, stories and women-oriented narratives of different cultures.

      Last year, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sergei Rachmaninoff, the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts organised six free concerts of the composer’s works for solo and two pianos. This year, the Academy is presenting more piano pieces, this time in a festival called ‘Prokofiev Meets the Great Romantics’. The Academy’s Head of Keyboard Studies Gabriel Kwok tells us about it.

    • Cantonese musical, “I am What I am”,

      Cantonese musical, “I am What I am”, "NL Imagined”@Goethe & in the studio: Vocalist Keith Wong

      On the show later, composer and vocalist Keith Wong will be here to tell us about his debut album, “Intertwined” and why he likes to intertwine choral music, theatre and the jazz tradition in his music. Turning to music with a perhaps more local emphasis, last year’s re-run of the original Cantonese musical “The Impossible Trial” was a smash hit, so much so that many were unable to get tickets. For those who couldn’t make it last time, there’s good news: the production is set to return to the stage in 2025. But before that happens, the same creative team behind the script and music for “The Impossible Trial” recently presented another original musical at this year’s Hong Kong Arts Festival.

      Among the many guests we’ve invited into the studio or featured in our filmed reports, many of the talented and upcoming younger musicians in Hong Kong are focusing on jazz. One of them is Keith Wong, a vocalist and composer who integrates the jazz tradition with choral music and theatre. A resident artist with the local a capella theatre company Yat Po Singers from 2012 to 2018, Wong went on to study jazz vocals in the Netherlands. He recently released his debut album, “Intertwined” which contains eight of his own original compositions.
