About

RoCH Fans & Legends features an exhibition of new commissioned work by susan pui san lok including film and animations for the gallery and digital online animations; also the exhibition Crouching Fan, Hidden Legend in QUAD Extra Gallery Spaces.

This new work draws on fan uploads of over forty different media adaptations of The Condor Trilogy, a classic ‘new wuxia’ epic published in the late fifties by Hong Kong-based author Louis Cha (aka Jin Yong).

RoCH (Return of the Condor Heroes) explores some of the genre’s fantasies, landscapes, and archetypes, the trilogy’s numerous translations across popular culture, and recurring images of weightlessness.

There will also be a drinks reception with welcome speeches, video games, performances and live martial arts film soundtracks DJ set by Satori Screen’s Peter Munford.
