Club 4A - Rui HO
Club 4A is back for a 2nd year in 2019, leaving the confines of the white cube and taking performance art back to the club. Joined by curators Mathew Spisbah and Rainbow Chan, Club 4A will host an evening of adventurous performance and audio visual art at Dynasty Karaoke, Chinatown. For the second event in this series, launched by 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art in 2018, we welcome the avant-garde club sounds of Chinese artist Rui Ho (CHN).
Known for her work on Shanghai label Genome 6.66 MBP and her genre-defying live performances, Rui Ho will make her Australian debut at Club 4A. With a practice that bridges modern club influences with traditional Chinese sounds, her music fuses the tension of heritage, identity and modernity in a globalised world.
Club 4A will also feature new collaborative works from interdisciplinary artists Rainbow Chan x Marcus Whale, live electronic improvisations from Del Lumanta x Milkffish, the sensitive and brutal catharsis of Ptwiggs, Yumgod’s deconstructed footwork techniques and the debut performance of Wtychings. New visual and 3D works from HK artist Harry Chan will create the LED backdrop for the evening, plus animated contributions by Sydney videos artists Kynan Tan and Craig Race-Stubbs.
Rui Ho’s participation in Club 4A is supported by project partner 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art. This project is also supported by project partner Liquid Architecture.
