慾望JUNGLE | Wong Ping

 

[From 咩事藝術空間]

 

“Jungle of Desire”: An Exhibition by Wong Ping
5 September – 15 November 2015
Opening hours: Thursday - Sunday, 1-8pm
Opening party: 5 September, 4-8pm
Address: 1/F, 98 Apliu Street, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon, Hong Kong 
(Approximately 3 minutes' walk from Sham Shui Po MTR station, A2 Exit)

 


We are excited to announce the official opening of Things that can happen with our first exhibition by Wong Ping. 

‘One day, your mother and your partner are trapped together in a burning forest. Your sense of morality compels you to save your mother first, and even your partner, while melting, calls to you gently, “Don’t worry, I am feeling a little hot. Save your mother!” 

At this moment, how desperately you wish that morality be damned; suppressing your own desires, you would exclaim to your mother, “You will wait!” And carrying your partner, you would burst through the forest without looking back. 

You think, if your mother is saved, you will continue paying the monthly family tribute. But if your partner is saved, and if the burns are not too serious, you will very soon resume your sex life. 

You think further, in a world without morals, you would not need to suppress your desire to not pay the family tribute. Would you still suppress desires for incest? 

Standing before the burning blaze, you know from deep inside, that neither of them deserves to be saved by you.’

For the first exhibition at Things, we have invited Hong Kong artist Wong Ping to showcase a series of new short animations that delve into the themes of sex and desire, anger and frustration in the current context of Hong Kong’s unsettling political atmosphere. Wong will adapt the 1960s ‘tong lau’ residential unit into the setting for a claustrophobic relationship, transforming it into a ‘jungle of desire’. 

Wong Ping is an animator and director based in Hong Kong. His work mixes topics such as teenage lust, shame and sexual suppression.

We sincerely thank Lavina and William Lim for generously supporting Wong Ping's exhibition 'Jungle of Desire' at Things that can happen.

Thank you also to Young Master Ales for sponsoring our opening event with locally crafted beer, and to the talented Paola Sinisterra and Ignacio Garcia for staging a bewitching 'Jungle of Desire' on our rooftop.

‘Things that can happen’ is a non-profit art space located in the historic district of Sham Shui Po, in Kowloon, at the heart of Hong Kong. 'Things' aims to provide a platform for open experimentation and dialogue in response to the rapidly changing social, political and cultural context of our city.

「慾望JUNGLE」──黃炳的一個展覧
2015年9月5日至11月15日
開放時間:星期四至日,下午1至8時
開幕派對:2015年9月5日下午4至8時
地址:香港九龍深水埗鴨寮街98號1樓
(港鐵深水埗站A2出口左轉,步行約3分鐘)

咩事藝術空間將於2015年9月5日正式開幕;屆時我們將同期展出黃炳的個人展覧,以作為咩事的首個展覧項目。

「有一天,你的母親和伴侶同時被困在火燒中的森林,道德迫使你最好先救出母親,甚至快溶掉的伴侶都會溫柔地說:『我只是有點熱而已,你先去救母親吧!』
「那一刻,你多麼希望道德消失,不用壓抑慾望,誠實地面對母親說:『你就等下一輪吧!』然後抱起伴侶,向森林出口不回頭的狂奔。
「你心想,要是母親獲救,這意味著要繼續負擔每月的家用。但假如伴侶獲救,只要皮膚傷勢不太嚴重,性生活相信很快就可以恢復。
「再細想,在沒有道德的世界裡,你還會抑壓不想再給予家用的慾望嗎?還會抑壓想試試亂倫的慾望嗎?
「站在熊熊烈火前的你,心底裡早知道,其實兩個都不值得自己衝進去拯救。」

我們誠意邀得香港藝術家黃炳為咩事首個展覧項目展出一系列新作動畫短片作品。這一系列動畫作品潛入現今香港惴惴不安的政治環境裡各種有關性與慾望、憤怒與頓挫的命題。黃炳將會利用上世紀六十年代築的唐樓單位,建構一段幽閉關係的場景,使之搖身一變為一個「慾望森林」。

黃炳來自香港,是一名動畫創作人及導演。他的作品混合諸如青少年的情慾、羞恥及性抑壓等主題。

我們感謝林偉而伔儷對黃炳的展覧計劃及咩事藝術空間的慷慨支持。

特別鳴謝 Young Master Ales 贊助本地釀製啤酒;以及 Paola Sinisterra 及 Ignacio Garcia 為我們在天台設計了一個慾望森林。

「咩事藝術空間」是一個非牟利藝術空間,位於歷史悠久的九龍深水埗地區,香港的中心地帶。「咩事」目的為提供一個開放性實驗及對話的平台,以回應我城面對的日新月異的文化及政治環境。
