The European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao, in partnership with Eaton Hong Kong, Visual AIDS, and Videotage, presents "Quorum Sensing" on World AIDS Day. Taking AIDS as a point of departure, the programme title suggests a dual meaning. First, the programme aims to promote care and support for people living with AIDS, as well as reducing the stigma and discrimination which often surround the disease. Second, it explores isolation and distress faced by AIDS patients physically and mentally through video works by local and international artists. We encourage the public to look at AIDS-related issues and discourse from multicultural perspectives.


Videotage uses a "catalyst" to respond to AIDS-related issues and conversations in the hope of expanding the public imagination and building a diverse and inclusive society. The screening features video works by four Chinese artists :

LIANG Yue - People Talking AIDS
Ellen PAU - Love in the Time of Cholera
Anson MAK - Music Video III: Ding Tong (Aids Virus)
HE Xiaopei - The Lucky One

Artists depict the possibility of understanding disease with moving images through which they address private emotions from a personal perspective while examining helplessness entangled with loss in reality. Establishing an effective dialogue with the surrounding world, they are effacing boundaries and distances arising from disease.
