PAPAY GYRO NIGHTS 2016 ART FESTIVAL / HONG KONG
April 8th to 21th, 2016
With the support of Clermont-Communauté
Papay Gyro Nights Art festival is a multimedia project / video art, sound art, experimental film, music and architecture / exploring place, rituals, folklore and trans-disciplinary interactions. The festival is taking place in two contrasting environments: on the small and remote North Atlantic island Papa Westray (with population only 70 people) and in Hong Kong, and also curating touring programmes which were presented in Iceland, Norway, Serbia, Faroe Islands, Sweden and around the UK.
Rather than focus on pure art forms we like to explore the limits, boundaries and in-between spaces where unexpected may take place.
