欢迎来到兰卡斯特兔年联欢会 Welcome to the Year of the Rabbit!

This year sees the Chinese New Year celebrations in Lancaster take a brave step in a new direction. We at the Hua Xian Chinese Society have for years organised community orientated events to share culture and arts with the wider community together with local artists, performers and volunteers. For 2011’s programme, as well as favourites from previous years, we’ve expanded and brought together events organised by ourselves and other partner organisations across Lancaster to showcase national and international artists and musicians such as Ed Pien - a Canadian based Chinese artist, and Xuefei Yang - from Beijing now based in the UK.

We hope the Festival will contribute to Lancaster’s aim to be the destination for anyone with a passion for arts and culture, helping to raise its profile as a vibrant, welcoming city for visitors and residents alike. Lancaster Chinese New Year is not just for the Chinese community, but for everyone. Please take this amazing opportunity and enjoy all the hardwork everyone has done to bring you this experience! Raymond Chan, Director Lancaster Chinese New Year Festival 2011

纪念|艺术展览 Memento | Arts Exhibition presented by Hua Xian Chinese Society, Storey Art Gallery and Chinese Arts Centre

日期:Saturday 5 February – Wednesday 2 April 时间:Tuesday – Saturday 11am-5pm, Thursdays 11am-8.30pm 场地:Storey Gallery The exhibition - Memento - by Ed Pien, is a walk-through environment created from knotted ropes, paper-cut silhouettes, video projections, rotating mirrors, sandbags, shadows, and sound. In the dim light, the visitor plunges into another world, navigating their way amidst the shadows beneath a rope net canopy, while projected images spin around the gallery walls. Memento was developed from his research into the plight of illegal immigrants who take great risks in the hope of achieving a better life. These people often have to live ‘ghost-like’, hidden from society, such as the Chinese cockle pickers in Morecambe Bay, the ‘Faujis’ from India living in the UK without identities, and the thousands of North Africans who try to cross the Mediterranean in small boats, some of whom perish on the way. Memento is a continuation of Pien’s interest in the otherworldly, invisibility, disappearance, and journeys. It poignantly

reflects on the displaced, forgotten and unseen, yet remains poetically open-ended. Ed Pien was born in Taiwan and moved to Canada aged 11. He has exhibited internationally including the Drawing Centre, New York; La Biennale de Montreal; Centro Nacional de las Artes, Mexico City; plAAy, Blackburn (UK); The Goethe Institute, Berlin; and Himalya Art Gallery, Chongqing, China. Memento was commissioned by the Chinese Art Centre in Manchester. 免费入场 FREE ENTRY
