HYBRID SHOW… … OPEN WORK

A zine is a growingly important mode of sharing and gathering to meaningfully nourish communities, through making and publishing handy and affordable little books. 

Michael Leung’s zine works in this month-long event shows his versatile practice: beyond printing, his activities have extended to multifarious participatory and activist motions, as social design, as the assemblance of other’s zines, as annotations of concrete human rights moments, transmediation to video essays and serial write-ups for serious/scholarly research.

There is no strict prescription for what a zine may look or contain; there is only the comradeship in cultivating shared spaces to articulate existential and quotidian concerns that have escaped dominant discourses and mainstream narratives. 

This is a hybrid practice in the sense that we seek to reach out to as many communities, levels of expression and media modes as possible. Affordability. Transportability. Versatility. These ideals bring together innovations of all kinds. An open work in itself.

This month-long series is also a hybrid event as we weave moments of conversation and collaboration into the exhibition of objects. The show not only embodies the voices of many individuals and the different voices of the same individual, but it also “grows” and “evolves” in the process of the four weeks.
