Between the Frames: 'Hide & Seek' with Simon Liu

Go in between the frames with moving image artist Simon Liu. This audio-visual performance deepens the experience of the unique soundscapes of Hide & Seek, the series of pre-show commissions Liu created to celebrate the opening of M+ Cinema and showcased as part of M+’s screening programmes.

Hide & Seek offers a layered reflection of Liu’s body of work, playfully repurposing images of urban spaces and personal histories. Composed with modular synthesizers, the soundscapes in this series open new generative possibilities in the artist's creative practice. The series aims to engage audiences with moving image in the contemporary era and highlight our experience of viewing artworks collectively in a screening space.

This event features a conversation in English about Hide & Seek between Liu and M+ Associate Curator of Moving Image Chanel Kong, followed by a live sonic performance accompanying a special composite cut of the series.
