Curtain Screening: Derek Jarman's "Blue" |「簾幕」電影放映:Derek Jarman《藍》

About this event

Join us for a screening of "Blue" by Derek Jarman, as part of the exhibition "Curtain", co-organised by Para Site, Hong Kong, and Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai. A radical "anti-film" and the final work by director Derek Jarman, "Blue" documents Jarman’s last days before succumbing to AIDS. By this time, Jarman had become blind, and the film is devoid of any imagery, plot, or characters, with only poetic music in the background, his own narration, and the eponymous blue color that fills the frame from beginning to end. Jarman was also active in the fight for gay rights, a theme that also figures prominently in his work. Stay for a post-screening talk with Cosmin Costinas, one of six curators of "Curtain", and Chantal Wong, Director of Culture and Workshop Producer at Eaton HK.

作為「簾幕」展覽的一部分,我們將會放映由Derek Jarman執導的《藍》,由香港Para Site藝術空間及上海外灘美術館聯合呈獻。導演Derek Jarman的辭世遺作《藍》是一部激進的「反電影」,記錄下了他罹患愛滋後的最後歲月。此時的Jarman已經雙目失明,影片從始至終都是藍色,沒有任何畫面、情節或人物,只有詩性的背景音樂和他本人的獨白。他同時也積極參與同性戀者平權運動,這也是其藝術創作的重要主題之一。放映後,「簾幕」策展人康喆明與香港逸東酒店文化總監黃子欣將會舉行對談,歡迎參與。
