The video exhibition “‘FICTION NON FICTION’ Reassembling 24 frames of reality through non narrative film works”, organized by the Cultural Affairs Bureau, was inaugurated on the evening of 28 October at No. 11, Travessa da Paixão. The opening ceremony was officiated by the Vice President of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, Chan Kai Chon; the exhibition curator Elysa Wendi; the participating artists Lao Keng U (Macao) and Liao Jiekai (Singapore); and the exhibition coordinator Lam Kin Kuan.
In order to introduce video art and promote diverse types of videos close by residents and tourists, and enhance the artistic atmosphere of the city, the exhibition showcases productions by five artists including Lao Keng U (Macao), Liao Jiekai (Singapore), Yosep Anggi Noen (Indonesia), Tulapop Saenjaroen (Thailand) and Raya Martin (the Philippines), which comprise non-narrative films in the form of video art - experimental and avant-garde films. In these short, medium and long experimental films, the five artists attempt to give the audience an insight into the absurdity, quality and reflection beyond mere images, and probe into the understanding and construction of reality from a new perspective.
