Oh, to be free

The Wild is the Grass series of shows taking place at Tai Kwun this weekend combine elements of dance, comedy, acting, music, text and mime. Four arts groups will invite audiences to explore different ways of breaking barriers to survive in a complex world and find their own individual space, free from outside considerations and constraints — the way wild grass grows in the unlikeliest of spaces. 

Curated by independent Hong Kong artist and producer Orlean Lai, this is the final event in the Jockey Club New Arts Power 2018 program, which showcases works by leading contemporary Hong Kong artists. Each of the four performing groups hosts two free events over four days. 

Online registration is required to attend the events.

Beards, uninterrupted 

The two-member art collective Gilbert & George presents a series of allegorical works representing change and chaos in the contemporary world. Described as “violent, eerie, grotesque, lurid, and crazed,” the paintings convey a sense of the artists’ response to the confounding nature of the times. Their portrayal of the world’s descent into madness includes devilish, bearded images of the artists themselves.

Gilbert & George’s The Beard Pictures

Dates: Until March 16
