About the event

Experience the captivating fusion of two seemingly unrelated concepts in the artwork of local artist Plastered 8. 'Synchronized Revolution’ brings together the grace and precision of synchronized swimming with the powerful imagery of Chinese revolutionary ballet, specifically ‘The Red Detachment of Women.’ 

Originally performed in China in 1964, ‘The Red Detachment of Women’ featured women dressed in revolutionary army attire, dancing with guns and grenades. Plastered 8's ingenious combination of synchronised swimming and this iconic ballet has resulted in a series of stunning visuals—children gracefully dancing and playing both above and in the water. 

Join us at this exhibition to witness prints of these extraordinary works, beautifully displayed on abandoned homes. Additionally, sculptures will protrude from walls, with one hidden amidst the enchanting forest. To enrich the experience, the exhibition also features a collection of artworks generously donated by the Wang Tong community, creating a truly breathtaking community-based outdoor gallery. 

The artist will be present at 16:00-16:30 on 25 November (Sat) to share his creative process.
