ifva partners with Goethe-Institut Hongkong to present solo exhibitions for Media Arts Category local awardees. In 2022, the two parties will present the solo media arts exhibition “A Messenger – Passerby in Our Battlefields” of Lo Lai-lai Natalie, the Gold Awardee of the 26th ifva Media Art Category, which explores the conflicts and wrestling among humans and nature through a collection of new media artworks.

The lonesome spring is approaching. We yearn to sing freely and migrate like birds, but the price of staying alive remains a mystery. Farmers, like their crops, used to live with the land. Some of them, however, art uprooted and rely on their intuition to flow steadily in the sky, just to pervert themselves from falling back onto the soil.

It is an unsettling field in and out. Could nature articulate the true self by provoking our emotions?
