JOCKEY CLUB New Arts Power | ArtWalk X The Mills
“Threading Through Time” Series — Literary Walk:
Fung Lam X Kay Chan (Installation)
Going through the entrance will lead you into a whole new realm, from the murals on the walls to the floor you are standing on. The installation will play the magic with the hidden lines of The Memory of Herbs looming up from nowhere. Step by step, line by line, weave yourself into the story and experience the journey.
Following the hints given in the artwork 1, visitors will discover the phone installation artwork. Pause and listen to the pulse of The Mills in its driving rhythms of those early days coming from the handset.
Walk along the Glass Bridge, here you will explore the history of The Mills more vividly with the voice navigation, the predated background machinery sound of The Mills in the early days, text reading and enchanting music.
^Remark: Cantonese reading is included in the audio content
***The artworks will be displayed along the Glass Bridge between 10 January and 19 January during the opening hours of The Mills ***

About Art Walk X The Mills “Threading Through Time” Series
We thread our way through each other day-after-day, expecting that we are so similar – yet so different.
Moving within the complex web of different people and architecture across the city, this is where the relationships of time, place and people weave in and out like yarn threading through us.
Concluding the Jockey Club New Arts Power (JCNAP) with this grand finale event, Threading Through Time engages literature, theatre, installation arts and more in a collaborative, cross-medium arts project. Leveraging on the creative framework derived from The Memory of Herbs, a prose fiction by local writer Chan Wai-yee (Chan Wai), it weaves in five unique art groups formed by the JCNAP artists and other performing groups: Lam Fung X Kay Chan, Ivanhoe Lam, Hugh Cho X TS Crew, Ata Wong X Théâtre de la Feuille, Olivia Yan X O Theatre Workshop. They explore the very fabric of our lives and see the threads of times unfold. From the textile industry, community and livelihood, to the entire city at different ages of development, the artists draw out the muse within and knit into their imagination.
A 3-part interactive installation will take place alongside with 4 spectacular performances at various sites of The Mills, running from 10 to 19 January 2020. Come explore and be enchanted by the muse encapsulated in this artistic and delicate fabric of memory, threading through times and distance between the past and present, reality and imagination.
