Interview with Ellen Pau, 15 September 1998 (Part 1), 訪問鮑藹倫，一九九八年九月十五日（第一部份）
Interview with Ellen Pau by Leung Chiwo Warren
Artist and Videotage Founder Ellen Pau joined the music club and the film club when she studied at the Hong Kong Polytechnic (00:00–13:11). In the interview, she talks about her attempt at a super 8mm film project (13:11–22:13). Subsequently, she worked at the Phoenix Cine Club, where she learned the cinematic language. At the same time, she found out that she was not most interested in film, so she continued making experimental videos (22:13–35:00). In the middle of the interview, Pau recounts meeting Hiram To and learning about an installation art group called 'Assemblage' at a workshop that took place at the Fringe Club, so she started doing installation art (35:05–43:50). Later on, she elaborates how she derived satisfaction from her personal art practice and self-taught video editing, but she also remarks that at times collaborating on tasks with a team was often needed, and that was the reason why she founded Videotage (43:50–54:06). She goes on to explain how she sees her video art and what she expects from it, and recounts her first video installation and performance artwork (54:06–1:17:00). The themes of Pau’s works include the situation of women, language of consciousness, power, and personal identity, etc. (1:17:00–1:24:30). At the end of the interview, she talks further about her video installation artworks and their conceptualisation, and how she used visual signs allegorically to reference some social phenomena.
