  • After a long postponement from 2020, 'Heimat im Wandel' will open on 5.5.2022

    Postponed since March 2020 due to the pandemic, the second exhibition has transformed into the seventh chapter in the 'Homeland in Transit' curatorial series with the German title HEIMAT im WANDEL in which Martin Brauen, cultural anthropologist specialising in Tibet and the Himalayas and curator, and Hong Kong curator Angelika Li attempt to interweave respective perspectives and experiences of Swiss-Tibetan artist Sonam Dolma Brauen, and six Hong Kong artists Hung Fai, Lee Ka Sing, Leung Chi Wo, MAP Office, Lulu Ngie and Wai Pong Yu. Despite many differences, the two places share something in common: the sense of homeland of its inhabitants is constantly being questioned and reinterpreted. How do the artists perceive these transformations and how do they represent it in their art?

  • An expanded list of artists for 'HOMELAND in TRANSIT: Through the Clouds' opening in Basel on 16 Sep

    The new expansion of 'Through the Clouds' opens in Basel this month. Following exhibitions in Murrhardt and Berlin during June and July that featured works by Hong Kong artists Luke Ching, Lo Lai Lai Natalie and Yim Sui Fong, curator Angelika Li has invited German/Swiss duo Copa & Sordes, Swiss sculptor Dorothee Sauter as well as Hong Kong painters Hung Fai and Wai Pong Yu to join in this latest chapter. With diverse mediums including paintings, ink on paper, sculptures, videos and installations, this transit further explores the boundless idea of the cloud as part of the hydrological cycle along with the wind and rain. How does this cycle impact on and reflect our current climate and situations? From different perspectives, how do the artists perceive the transformations, if not turbulences? Are we going through a test of our resilience in unpredictable environments? Are we bound within the new realities or breaking through? Are we like clouds, going where the wind blows, by chance? The sense of change, unpredictability and floatingness echoes literary references echoes from English poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850), Chinese poet Xu Zhimo (1897-1831) and Hong Kong novelist Xi Xi (1937-) which offer much inspiration to this chapter. In ‘I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud’ (1798), Wordsworth personifies himself as a melancholic cloud that aimlessly drifts ‘high o’er vales and hills’ and brings us to contemplate on the disappearance of things dear to us. In a very different context and in his tempestuous style, Xu opens his poem ‘By Chance’ (1926) with ‘I am a cloud in the sky…’, expressing the inevitable nature and qualities of change, unpredictability and impermanence between the cloud and water, ‘the sea in the darkness’ and ‘the glow that sparked between us as we crossed our paths’. Xi Xi opens her novel ‘The Floating City’ (1986) with René Magritte’s ‘The Castle of the Pyrenees’ (1959) on a big rock suspending in the air above a rough sea as the visual imagery: 'Rolling clouds swirled by above; waves crashed on the swelling sea below…There had been a violent collision of clouds lighting up the sky with flashes and roars of thunder…Suddenly the floating city had dropped from the clouds and hung in midair.’ The exhibition opens in the Old Town of Basel on Thursday, 16 September and will be on view from 17 September to 2 October by appointment only: info@onkili.com and +41 7678 1 7678. Covid-19 safety: masks required inside the gallery. Previous venues of this chapter: Ein Fenster inmitten der Welt at Wolkenhof, Murrhardt, Germany 4 June - 22 July Momentum, Kunstquartier Bethanien, Berlin 11-25 July

  • HOMELAND in TRANSIT 2022

    2022 2021 2020 2019 2022 PROGRAMME EXHIBITION HOMELAND IN TRANSIT CARRIED BY THE WIND 10 - 26 JUNE 2022 SALON MONDIAL BASEL/MÜNCHENSTEIN SWITZERLAND ​ ​ Vernissage: 10 June 2022 18-21h Exhibition: 11 - 26 June 2022 Fridays to Sundays: 12-18h Special opening dates 13-16 June: 14-18h Art Basel VIP Programme: 14 June 18-20h RSVP: Team@PF25.org Salon Mondial, Freilager-Platz 9, 4142 Münchenstein/Basel, Switzerland (Tram No. 11 to Freilager) A Group Exhibition of Hong Kong and Swiss artists: Oscar Chan Yik Long (Hong Kong, Helsinki) Isaac Chong Wai (Hong Kong, Berlin) Andreas Marti (Zürich) Kathrin Siegrist + Iva Wili (Basel) Angela Su (Hong Kong) Curated by Angelika Li (Hong Kong, Basel) Co-presented by Atelier Mondial and PF25 cultural projects Supported by Christoph Merian Stiftung ​ ​ Introduction The word ‘homeland’ evokes a physical and permanent form on the surface, yet when we dive a little deeper into our memories and emotions, the word urges us to reflect on its complex and shifting nature. The exhibition channels narratives of ‘homeland’: borders, boundaries, roots, diaspora, cultural identity, colonial ideologies and beyond. Wind is a symbol of change: the vital breath, flow of life. This familiar element can be pleasant and gentle as a breeze or a vigorous air energy as ‘hei3’ (氣) in Cantonese, yet it can be devastating and destructive as a hurricane or an accelerator for fire causing catastrophic damage. Wind also inspires the movements of thoughts and this Homeland in Transit chapter ‘Carried by the Wind’ is indebted to the captivating works by Bob Dylan, Sanmo, Juan Ramón Jiménez, Hayao Miyasaki and Wong Kar Wai. In our fast-expanding world of displacement and exile, the sense of homeland is being constantly questioned and reinterpreted. Does the nature of the wind change? How do we strike a balance and find harmony within? Does it carry our messages, dreams and hopes? In the exhibition, we will find out how the six artists from Hong Kong and Switzerland Oscar Chan Yik Long, Isaac Chong Wai, Andreas Marti, Kathrin Siegrist + Iva Wili and Angela Su perceive this powerful element of movement and how they represent it in their works in mediums ranging from ink paintings, videos, moving objects, to textile installations.

They seem to be threaded into dialogues as shown in the works brought together in this exhibition linking cultural landscapes, memories and human conditions.’ Martin Brauen and Angelika Li Co-curators, Heimat im Wandel February, 2020 ​ ​ The word ‘homeland’ has complex meanings: a clearly defined place/space, a tradition/culture that you share with others, a common history, belonging to a certain community in which you feel at home - and thus also feelings such as security and trust. It evokes a permanent form on the surface, yet when we dive a little deeper into our memories and emotions, the word urges us to reflect on its shifting nature. The definition of ‘homeland’ fluctuates under socio-political pressures which can lead to alienation and discontent, and potential fragmentations in our societies. Postponed since March 2020 due to the pandemic, the second exhibition has transformed into the seventh chapter in the Homeland in Transit series with the German title HEIMAT im WANDEL in which Martin Brauen, cultural anthropologist specialising in Tibet and the Himalayas and curator, and Hong Kong curator Angelika Li attempt to interweave respective perspectives and experiences of Swiss-Tibetan artist Sonam Dolma Brauen, and six Hong Kong artists Hung Fai, Lee Ka Sing, Leung Chi Wo, MAP Office, Lulu Ngie and Wai Pong Yu.
