Mobile M+: Live Art presents artists exploring aspects of ‘liveness’ and the body and action as the mediums and channels of expression. These Outdoor performances in public venues explore the relationship between the performer and the public, as well as notions of social and spatial interaction.

Lin Yilin (Chinese, born 1964): Twenty

6 Dec, 4pm at Tim Mei Avenue footbridge, Admiralty
11 and 12 Dec, 5pm at West Kowloon Cultural District

In this new work, Lin Yilin references the Basic Law as a cornerstone of Hong Kong’s present system. Pages of the Basic Law have been woven into a massive rope, the centrepiece in a publicly staged tug- of-war. Like many of Lin’s works, Twenty hints at political uncertainties while adopting a playful and light- hearted attitude.

Eiko Otake (Tokyo, born 1952): A Body in Hong Kong

13 Dec, 3:30pm at Big Circle, Nursery Park, West Kowloon Cultural District

In a continuation of her larger project A Body in Places, Japanese-American artist Eiko Otake presents A Body in Hong Kong – a series of multiple outdoor performances throughout the city, in which she responds directly to the unique characteristics of Hong Kong.
