Hong Kong Artwalk 2014
Mur Nomade invited Beijing-based French artist Niko de La Faye to present the M2B kinetic sculpture and light performance in Hong Kong’s unique streetscape during Hong Kong ArtWalk 2014.
With M2B, Niko de La Faye created a representation of the Universe placed on a traditional Chinese tricycle. M2B is a piece of poetry in the midst of the traffic. It does not create anything but its own show. In spring 2012 and spring 2013, the artist rode M2B for 80 days, along a 3,400-kilometer route from Beijing to Hong Kong, as an itinerant performance.
This time, Niko de La Faye will set up the M2B Shadow Theatre on the ArtWalk route, on Shin Hing Street, off Hollywood Road. Every hour, a 12-minute performance will be offered: the sculpture, covered in a white screen, will transform into an abstract shadow theatre. The artist will share with passing-by audiences the many stories of his 80-day ride on M2B.
