Join Herman Chan Ho Wang, Rannie Ip Ka Man, Hou Lam Tsui, and Winsome Wong Dumalagan for the first artist exchange of ‘Noble Rot’ Part One. Each artist will be invited to discuss shared interests on the cultural politics of memory and history, body and gender, and labour and family in the context of each new commission. How does the body act as a canvas for cartographies of postcolonial trauma without scarring it once again? In what ways can the staging of humans as surveilled objects and sheer surplus value conversely weaken the state’s gaze? For video, screen, and time-based practitioners, narratives of domination do not remain static; the mediation of the filmic picture also shifts the relations of power embedded in each account and every subsequent retelling. Quotidian places, events, and objects lose and regain affective and political meaning as surfaces on which images are projected become layered if not distorted and deconstructed. The session will be moderated by Para Site Curator Celia Ho.
