João Vasco Paiva is participating in the latest sequel to videoclub (UK) and Videotage’s (HK) project, “Both Sides Now II – It was the best of times, it was the worst of time”. Taking its title from Dickens’ oeuvre, the programme brings together internationally renowned video and film artists to reinterpret the present context of Hong Kong and beyond. Through a series of exhibitions and screenings initiated as a continuous dialogue between China and Europe’s media art institutions, the project seeks to stimulate thoughts on national identities and cultures. For this occasion, Paiva is presenting “Action through Non Action” (2009), a pixelated footage of passersby motion in Mongkok, Hong Kong.
UK Screenings: July – November 2015
