Christopher Doyle – The Heart of Saturday Night
Hotel Stage is collaborating with Hong Kong renowned Cinematographer Christopher Doyle featuring his collage art exhibition “The Heart of Saturday Night” and his newest book set” Why I Am Not A Painter”.
“Collages are colours and forms and images thrown together to see what might become of them, to embrace their chance encounter, to be amused and surprised by the ideas a few bits of paper stuck together may reveal to me and you,” Chris once said. To Chris, the way collage art brings new and interesting ideas is no different from making film montage. For those who enjoy Chris’ cinematography, the exhibition offers a chance to peek into Chris’ complete visual world.
The exhibition also celebrates the release of Chris’ newly-released book set, “Why I Am Not A Painter” and “Of The Film”. “Why I Am Not A Painter” was the title of American poet Frank O’Hara’s work, in which his philosophy on art resonates that of Chris’: Everything is formed in “process”. The book consists of his soliloquy on art creation. “Of The Film”, on the other hand, is a collection of his reflections over the years working in the film industry.
Guests and fans will be able to enjoy this rare opportunity to share Chris’ views on art.
The exhibition is on display until May 27, 2018, at Muse Art and Books, from 12 noon to 12 midnight daily at The Muse, basement, Hotel Stage,1 Chi Wo Street, Kowloon.
Visitors can also enjoy buy one get one free happy hour promotion from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Muse Wine Bar.
