HONG KONG. Jacob Kirkegaard showing Nagaras # 1 at Around Sound Art Festival 2015: Examining the contemporary phenomena of sound art, the fifth edition of the Around sound art festival, Around sound art festival 2015 seeks to uncover the multi-layered range of perspectives by showcasing the artistic process behind concepts dealing with sound. The exhibitions bring together local and international artists, each with a very distinct set of language, tools and techniques used in resonating their ideas. Aside from the exhibition, through performances, workshops and talks, we attempt to break down assumptions that audiences might have on the definition of sound art. This year, the festival is curated by Aki Onda (JP / US) and Helen Homan Wu (US/ HK) in which they explore how a new generation of sound and visual artists use sound as an artistic medium or conceptual art form. Artists Feng Hao (PRC), Chelpa Ferro (Brazil), Phoebe Hui (HK), Eli Keszler (US), Jacob Kirkegaard (Denmark/ Germany), Rie Nakajima (JP/UK) and Sergei Tcherepnin (US) are invited to exhibit their works at Osage Gallery and Karin Weber Gallery. Talks and performances will be presented together with Dennis Wong (HK) at School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong and McAulay Studio, Hong Kong Arts Centre. Nov - Dec.
