"tick-tock": AN exhibition BY yang chi-chuan (part I)
9 March - 2 April 2017 (Special opening days: 20 - 22 March 2017) Opening reception: Thursday, 9 March 2017, 6-9pm
We are pleased to present a two-part experiment by Yang Chi-chuan, the first part will take place from 9 March to 2 April overlapping with her residency at Things that can happen from 2 to 28 March.
For the first phase of the exhibition, Chi-chuan will present an ongoing project which comprises of voice recordings of the artist reading her own writings. She writes on a daily basis and these notations reflect and accumulate her everyday experiences, thoughts and memories. The voice recordings are edited into a 24-hour sequence, in which small sound effects such as the tick-tock of a clock are added to indicate the passing of time. Some segments of the recording are selected in response to the opening hours of the exhibition space.
In this iteration, Chi-chuan will weave in her impressions of Hong Kong, including previous stays in the city and memories of old Hong Kong TV dramas. Over the span of the residency, as she interacts with the city, additions and adjustments will be made to the existing installation.
Yang Chi-chuan is an artist from Taipei, Taiwan. She focuses on small, intricate physical perceptions that can be sparked with the presence of art in an environment, seeking to incorporate senses beyond sight into her art to evoke a new sensory order.
We sincerely thank Kee Foong and Andres Vejarano for generously supporting Yang Chi-chuan's residency and two-part exhibition at Things that can happen.
