One of the reasons for the study lays in the widespread acceptance and development of this art medium in the recent days: more and more artists involving in performance art in the local and international art scene. However, there is a lack of documentation and archive for this medium in Hong Kong. Although, from time to time, there may appear one or two articles on newspapers or journals about performance art activities, to have a thorough study of the development of performance art in a more systematic manner in Hong Kong is still quite difficult. <br><br> Each internship practice in  Performance Art Internship involves one essential element from our school life. By juxtaposing  learning at school with the real life together, the  Performance Art Interns reveal the abstract concept of performance art throughout the process of  learning in their performance art pieces.  The Ten Practices were started out with a more elementary level at the beginning. The interns then worked toward the senior level step by step. Most of the artworks respond to various social and political issues at that time. The current exhibition is the documentation of all the  internship pieces and the graduation ceremony for the interns. <br><br>  Performance Art Interns have conducted ten practices during their internship period: <br>Internship 1: Learning Through Imitating: Copycat (2005) <br>Internship 2: Learning Through Notetaking: Eye-hand Coordination (2005) <br>Internship 3: Learning Through Experiments: Tracks of the Tank (2005) <br>Internship 4: Learning Through Games: Paper Air-plane (2006) <br>Internship 5: Learning Through Punishment: Penalty of Colors I (2007) <br>Internship 6: Learning Through Part-time Jobs: Fo Tan Zoo (2009) <br>Internship 7: Learning Through Superstitious Practices: Follow the Voice (2009) <br>Internship 8: Learning Through Taking Sick-Leaves: International Sick Leave Day (2009) <br>Internship 9: Learning Through Examinations: Proposal X (2009) <br>Internship 10: Learning Through Social Practices: Penalty of Colors II (2010) <br><br>  Performance Art Interns finished one piece during each internship practice. There will be ten sets of documentation works shown in this exhibit. Each will involve a few 16R photographs and videos, along with other props and completed visual artworks installed. With its direct and clear agenda, each internship performance will be able to engage the viewers easily. Every exhibition district will have its own theme and, at the same time, have a close relationship with the other districts. Some of the pieces are interactive and welcome the participation of the audience. <br><br><br><br> <b>U\!|N:</b> <br><br> 0Lp݅S[u 0(Performance Art Internship)/f1u 0NNmQ] z 0݅S\D}V{RvN1u2005t^2010t^gcvz 0Lp݅S 0v] zR0{-NcvzSV/fbP gLp݅S݅Sb__ck(WevnfS0^l asSY0WS,g0WKN݅SW-N GWOY݅S]\OO(uZNuR\O0S/fdk TBf ,g/n \݅Sb__v}Se{sS/fU}!qP g -Nbg g P%Rv1Xz1X\ b݅SezcS P%RvLp݅S;mR S/f 傁g g|q}v}0nb__(W,g0W|vU\va} 1\/fvvuV0 <br><br> 0Lp݅S[u 0k!k[1ux[!hum-Nv_}KN\OQ|vޞ N 0Lp݅S[u 0NeQs[u;m _[u 0x[ 0p,gvܕu bLp݅Svbai_ [(WSwQԚ0WU\:y0AS!k[1umeQm ekmS 'YRU\Q\OTwQ7_p>yg0?el'`CQ } VaBfN0/f!kU\S wbp 0Lp݅S[u 0v=~P} S bumixQy0 <br><br> 0Lp݅S[u 0qQ2LAS!kLp݅S[ <br><br> <br>[1. _!jN-Nx[ߍ (2005) <br>[2. _F{-Nx[Kb[3. _[W-Nx[fWKQ̎ (2005) <br>[. _J2b-Nx[>eۘ_j (2006) <br>[5. _ap-Nx[{^i_p_l(N) (2007) <br>[6. _|Qw-Nx[OpRirW (2009) <br>[7. _O-Nx[NNc (2009) <br>[8. _uGP-Nx[ WˊuGPe (2009) <br>[9. _f-Nx[XR (2009) <br>[10. _>yg-Nx[{^i_p_l(N) (2010) <br><br> 0Lp݅S[u 0k!k[b1\NN/D}\OT @bN=~qQgU\QASN/D}\OT kN/D}\OTwQ gY@^}16R}gqGrSN/}PGrk MTYCQSvSSwQ0[b\OTI{ }PgN݈nb__U\Q bk!k[LpnpfvcU\:y 'Y'Ycؚ\OTvS'`0kN PRU\@SwQ P%R;NL TBfNNv}r# wQnpfAm z0 P%R\OTwQNR'` akΏ>wSNR0 <br><br> <b>Curated and Presented by: </b>PROJECT 226/ <br> <b>Co-presented by: </b>C&G Artpartment/ <br><b>Venue: </b> Hong Kong Arts Centre / <br><b>Supported by: </b>HKADC <br><br> <b>Exhibition Artists:</b>Core Members of Project 226: CHEUNG Clara, CHU Yiu Wai(Price), CHENG Yee Man(Gum) <br> <b>Preview:</b> 11:11:11am, (Fri)11-11-2011 <br> <b>Opening:</b> 5:30pm, (Fri)11 November, 2011 <br> <b>Exhibition Date:</b> (Sat)12 November to (Wed)16 November, 2011 <br> <b>Exhibition Time:</b> 10:00am to 8:00pm (10:00am to 4:00pm on (Wed)16 November, 2011) <br> <b>Venue:</b> Pao Galleries, 4 / F Hong Kong Arts Centre, 2 Harbour Road, Wanchai, HK <br> <b>Seminar: </b> 6:00 to 8:00pm, (Fri)11 November, 2011 <br> <b>Theme: </b>What is not performance art after all? <br> <b>Venue:</b> Pao Galleries, 4/F Hong Kong Arts Centre, 2 Harbour Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong <br> <b>Speakers: </b> KWOK Mang Ho(Frog King), PAK Sheung Chuen(Tozer), Members of Project 226 <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br> <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br> <b>Enquiry:</b>M: 23909332 <br> E: info@CandG-Artpartment.com/ <a href="www.CandG-Artpartment.com">www.CandG-Artpartment.com</a> <br> </font> </td></tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> <br> <table width="800" height="23"> <tr> <td width="150"> <br><br> </td> </tr> </table> </body>
