Sat 14 Feb - Paul Sakoilsky, The Editor of the Dark Times / Dino Mahoney HONG KONG BAR HOP

Dino Mahoney presents his project HONG KONG BAR HOP

HK Bar Hop is a hedonistic celebration of the gay scene in Hong Kong at a time when many Hong Kong people are concerned that Big Brother China , potentially threatens the freedoms that they have. The recent Occupy Hong Kong Yellow Umbrella protest movement expressed was an effort to catch the world attention.

'The Dark Times'

Paul Sakoilsky is The Editor.

'It started simply enough: whilst painting a canvas for the first time in many years, in an absolutely freezing apartment/come-studio in Deptford, I was using one of those shitty free London tabloid papers to clean my palette knife/brush and started doodling, and then wrote on it, the dark times: London’s only truly independent newspaper. I believe this was at the end of 2006? But the project had it’s first full blown realisation at the ‘Climate of Change’ exhibition in Union Street[2] in 2007, where as artist-in-residence and building security (along my Staffordshire terrier), I set up the first dark times: press office.'
