Passage | Kingsley Ng

Emptiness is a document of absence. In every absence, there is a story of loss. What dwells in lingering emptiness? When theatre seats are filled again, Passage contemplates the loss behind their once emptiness and what continues to dwell in a void. Paying tribute to Herz Frank’s Ten Minutes Older, the action will take place through a reversal of the screen and spectators. Instead of being seated in the auditorium, the audience would rather find their places on the stage and look back to the vacant seats. An abstraction of drifting clouds, constructed with pixelated lights, glides across memories of loss and lingering absence, on a mental sky in crimson, like dusk.

Passage | 伍韶勁

空空如也,是一種缺席的記錄。 每一場缺席,都有一個關於失去的故事。 在揮之不去的空洞中,有什麼縈繞不散? 當影院再滿座,《Passage》回望曾經的虛席:它們失去過什麼?有什麼在虛空中仍然存在?作品向Herz Frank的《十分鐘後》致敬,然而,光影流動之間,螢幕跟觀眾位置對換。走進影院,觀眾會安坐台前,回過頭來,靜觀滿場空座。 那裏,光點構成抽象的浮雲,漂過回憶中的失落和執意的留座。這個天空赤紅,像暮色的黃昏。
