Screening & Kukangendai Music Performance @ F Hall Studio, Tai Kwun
Hyperlinks or It Didn’t Happen (Cécile B. Evans, 2014) Black Transparency (Metahaven, 2013) Pumzi (Wanuri Kahiu, 2009) This evening programme brings short films of artists Cecile B. Evans, Metahaven and Wanuri Kahiu, followed by a mesmerising music performance of Japanese experimental post-rock trio Kukangendai. Informed by the curatorial thinking of exhibition Phantom Plane, Cyberpunk in the Year of the Future, the screening probes situations such as material consciousness in the digital realm, the power structure and organisational abilities of the internet during a time of social unrest, as well as a portrayal of an apocalyptic future world lacking in water. It presents a reflection on crisis modes and humanity in the evolving technological reality. Formed in 2006, Kukangendai ceaselessly explores musical boundaries through a process of editing, replicating and deliberate error. Predicated on collage, mechanical sampling and discordant sounds, the music of Kukangendai combines electronic sounds and creativity together to a dazzling end. Tai Kwun Contemporary is pleased to host the first performance of Kukangendai in Hong Kong. Screening Line-up Hyperlinks or It Didn’t Happen (Cécile B. Evans, 2014) Black Transparency (Metahaven, 2013) Pumzi (Wanuri Kahiu, 2009)   Free admission; please register for seats on Tai Kwun website: https://www.taikwun.hk/zh/learn/detail/film-screening-and-kukangendai-music-performance/529
