Tak Giu DVDR spotted at Substation

Tak Giu

Spot the TAK GIU dvd? For his latest exhibition, artist Kent Chan watched all the 700 films shown under The Substation’s Moving Images programme in the last 15 years. Glad he survived! =)

Sindie says: Almost every film submission to that came to the Substation over the last 10 years arrived in humble copy DVDs with handwritten labels. Here are 9 local titles that came in the same humble packaging but shone brighter than the gleam on the silver or bronze finishing of the DVDs. In another 10 years, we may see them in the museum.

Read here for an interview about the exhibition ‘Temporary Repositories’. Tak Giu (Kick Ball) can be watched online, or buy the Hosaywood DVD to support us.
