- Ip Yuk-yiu 葉旭耀

Rehearsals for muted films #2 reworks three Hollywood films with stories that were set against Hong Kong. The work for the visitor is a speechless excursions of projected text, which proposes new ways of seeing, listening and reading popular cinema while at the same time re-imagining the dialogue (or the lack of it) as an allegorical conversation about culture and identity. The three films are Love is a Many-Splendored Thing (1955), The World of Suzie Wong (1960) and Enter the Dragon (1973).

 

Yuk_siteview03R《Rehearsals for muted films #2》重構了三齣與香港有關的荷里活電影,包括《生死戀》 (1955)、《蘇絲黃的世界》 (1960)及《龍爭虎鬥》 (1973)。作品猶如一段沈默的旅程,被投影播放著的文字開啟觀眾以全新方式去觀看、聆聽及閱讀普及的電影,同時把三部電影中的對話重新想像為有關文化與身份的寓意性的對話。
