After a decade of bringing in exciting art discoveries from around the world - notably from Indonesia, to Hong Kong, Sin Sin is delighted to share a recent discoveries she found closer to home at JCCAC (Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre) in Shek Kip Mei, Hong Kong. In December 2013, Sin Sin attended the opening of FIVE, a group exhibition held at JCCAC in celebration of their 5th Anniversary, featuring works by their tenants. Some of the works she saw that evening captured her imagination and spoke directly to her current mission to delve deeper into Hong Kong art scene at grass root level through the space she has at Sin Sin Fine Art. It has always been her greatest joy to gather creative energy and to inspire more people.

Thus the first ever collaboration between Sin Sin Fine Art and JCCAC is born, manifested in this HONG KONG FORWARDS group exhibition. Sin Sin Fine Art and JCCAC are excited to show recent works by Fonny Lau, Jessie Leung, Joey Leung, Julvian Ho, Wong Tong, Zhang Zhe and eight artists from Hong Kong Modern Ink Painting Society (Anita Lau Kam Chee, Chan Sing Kau, Jiwye To, Margaret Kwok Fan Yeung, Nina Pryde, Rick Chan Chak Fai, Stella Yau Mui Chun, and Wong Wai Keung).

In Chinese belief, “Good Things Come in Pairs”, which depicts the meaning of DOUBLE囍HAPPINESS.  In 2014, The ‘Yuan Xiao’ Festival or the Chinese Valentine’s Day falls on the same day as the Western Valentine’s Day.  The last of this rare occasion happened 19 years ago; a big celebration is called for!

We shared some historical background of Sai Street.  In 1920, Sai Street was a district for Chinese theatrical and musical troupes.  Many brothels in the red-light district kept singsong girls and musicians, and most of the brothel madams trained their own daughters as singers.  Sai Street has a vivid history of music and Chinese opera.   Sin Sin brought this vivid history back to life by performing Chinese opera.

Accompanied by a group of professional musicians, Sin Sin Man冼倩文 performed with three amateur opera singing sisters, Lyew Chin Wai廖千慧, Ma Lyew Chin Yui馬廖千睿, and Lyew Hui Ting廖栩廷, who have over 30 years of opera singing experience. It was an honour for us to have Mr. Ng, Lut Kwong - Head of Playwriting and Scriptwriting and Acting Head of Music (Chinese Opera) at The Hong Kong Acadermy for Performing Arts as our special participant in the performance. Over the years, Sin Sin has been performing Chinese Opera in many venues, but this will be her first time to perform in her own art space!
