RTHK' s The Works focuses on Hong Kong's arts and cultural scene. The Works features news and reviews of visual and performing arts, design, literary and other “ works ” .
The Covid-19 pandemic has upended our collective behaviour in terms of the ways in which we live, learn, work, and interact with one another. Many companies are now even considering whether working from home could be the permanent future of work. Creativity is key to coping with disruption. Artists are often at the forefront of proposing solutions.
Fittingly titled for Hong Kong’s sometimes sweltering summer, “Residual Heat” is a group exhibition by seven Hong Kong artists from different generations that’s on show at the Axel Vervoordt Gallery. Curated by Chris Wan Feng, the exhibition, split into three parts, traces the aesthetic tradition and interconnected development of Hong Kong’s contemporary art scene. The works are accompanied by poems selected by poet Liu Wai-tong.
The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra’s principal flautist Megan Sterling is used to performing a wide repertoire, from classical orchestral and chamber music to Cantopop.
She is also a music teacher and a renowned soloist. This Saturday though, instead of performing with her regular orchestra, Megan will be accompanying the Hong Kong Sinfonietta in the concert, “Collage on Bach”. She and concertmaster James Cuddeford are here to tell us more.
