We are pleased to announce RE-FORMAT, a group exhibition featuring works by Michelle Claase, Sophie Cyzewski, Jason Kam, Wai Lung Ip, and Yi-Hsin Tzeng. The works exhibited explore each artist's distinctive narratives and experiences in deconstruction and alteration of personal identity within the fluxes of contemporary time and fluid art media. Their works are manifested in alternative painting, magazine paper, digital media, and performances while invoking and challenging the notion of body objectification, value of labor and art, and complex layers of dislocation. Michelle Claase, Sophie Cyzewski, and Jason Kam are current candidates for Painting BFA at SCAD-HK.
An Intervention by Ip Wai Lung@parasite
Responding to Bruce Nauman’s video performance Dance or Exercise on the Perimeter of a Square, artist Ip Wai Lung works with the passage of time and the restriction of body movement while wearing a rubber outfit and performing repetitive gymnastic exercises.
The performance will last about 20 mins and will take place in the gallery space. It will be followed by a Q&A with Ip Wai Lung and Freya Chou, Para Site's Curator of Education and Public Programmes.
““I am encompassed in my home, in a stranger's home, at the gym, indoors and outdoors, and in public. I am surrounded by air, by myself, from inside and outside. I am encircled by the whole earth, by the universe. They all keep me at an inadequate distance.” ”by Ip.
