Level Note one two is a mini, temporary and mobile showcase on rooftops in Hong Kong. This showcase comprises exhibition, performance & screening. It will pop up on two rooftops (one and two) on two consecutive Saturdays in late June, each for a day from late afternoon to the evening. It aims to bring art out of the “white cube” to a less expected space, exploring the possibilities of rooftops as a platform for art in Hong Kong. The two respective rooftops are on an industrial building in Kwun Tong and a tong lau (“Chinese building” literally; often refers to buildings built in late 19th century to the 1960s in Hong Kong) in Sham Shui Po, the two once-major types of buildings in Hong Kong. These spaces are samples of Hong Kong’s urbanscape, offering alternative facets of the city. In a city renowned for its extreme crowdedness and vertical development, rooftop could be an ideal place to experience the charm of a city. This showcase emphasises the notion of travel What are the challenges and potentials of a travelling (and almost portable) art showcase compared to a relatively static exhibition? How does it transform in the journey and being situated in another space? The selected artworks share an equal interest in mobility and temporality. Level Note one two is the first project by case-open-close, an artist collective in Hong Kong.
