v-artivist, Hong Kong
Lee Wai Yi (Hong Kong) is a member of v-artivist, a Hong Kong based art group “participating in public life through art and video”. The group believes that ‘art is the creative expression of the relationship between individual and collective’, and is thus devoted to “bring art back to the people and let people return to art”. The productions of v-artivist cover various social issues concerning the lives of the grassroots. Most of their film-length productions are continuous participatory documentaries, including people in deep distress (2013), raging land 3 film series (2010-2012), walk on! shung ning road (2011), and where the yellow banner flies (2006). The essay-film trilogy exodus of nowhere is their response to the growing ethnic tension in contemporary Hong Kong. Other than filmmaking, v-artivist is also actively engaged in media literary movement to empower the grassroots' continuous and autonomous engagement with art.
