'Re:mind the GAP' was the culminating event of the 'Global Art Practice Collaboration' project and took the format of a research lab with live artworks run by each artist in response to our experiences in the UK, Japan, Hong Kong and China. This event took place on the 5th September 2018 at HART Haus, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong. The group of artists who collaborated on this event included nine students from MFA Global Art Practice at Tokyo University of the Arts and nine students from MA courses at Central Saint Martins, including Fine Art, Graphic Communication Design, Arts and Cultural Enterprise, and Culture, Criticism and Curation. The projects we developed included a collaborative exercise in mapping through collage, a mock visa application performance/procedure which was completed by each attendee upon entering the event, a series of guest talks by three Hong Kong artists, an interactive sound work exploring 'emotional borders', and various sculptures, installations, videos, paintings and murals throughout the space.
