    posted by Studio Phil Akashi on Wednesday, October 1, 2014

    The Saturday 27th September 2014, Phil Akashi participated to the South Island Art Day in Hong Kong, together with more than 20 galleries and artist studios such as Alisan Fine ArtsArt Statements, Blindspot GalleryPékin Fine Arts, Plum Blossoms Gallery, Rossi & Rossi, Spring Workshop,  and Gallery Exit.

     

    The event took part in the South Island Cultural District (SICD), the HK new destination for Contemporary Art. This exciting Art Day included exhibition openings, street and studio performances by artists, musicians and dancers, artist talks, creative activities for children and a late night after-party.

     

    Alongside other artists, Phil Akashi showcased a video art project (Universe) on a giant screen in the G.I.G. Gallery in the newly opened Ovolo Southside Hotel, first warehouse conversion hotel in HK (member of Design Hotels). The G.I.G. Gallery is a dynamic art and event space that encompasses the Ovolo Hotel ground floor. Featuring tall ceilings, glass partitions and illumination from exquisite 25 meter video wall displays, G.I.G turns the Ovolo arrival experience into one of the must-see spots on the Southside.

     

    The other artists participating in video art were AES+F (The Feast of Trimalchio & Allegoria Sacra), Erwin Olaf (Le Dernier Cri), Qiu Zhije (Form of Memory), Pascal Lièvre (Abba Mao & the Axes of Evil), Li Ming (Pond), Xu Qu (Upstream), Chen Shaoxiong (Ink Media), Yu Lik Wai (Nocturnal), Wong Sze Mei (The Grey Sooth), Wong Yik Fung (Slowdive & Gleam) and Mandy Cheung Fuk-ngai (Infinity). Phil Akashi also participated in artist talks in his studio, which was opened the whole day to the public.
