Countering statements generated by a washing machine
and its mind

​回應洗衣機同佢個腦的陳述

2022

 

The swirling action of the washing machine in the art video generates an "artspeak" statement which I can’t understand the statement but find funny.

When artspeak statements and interpretations overwhelm audiences and drown artworks, let’s get even by “captioning” them with images to highlight the irrelevance and upper middle class connotation typical of many art and exhibition statements today.


Countering this "washing-machine generated" statement with images and footages is a means to empower myself as an artist and an audience.

I consider this the counteractive power of art. The statement in this art video is made up of fragments (a remix) from statements found in events I visited before and on social media.

看了不少展覽陳述,很是有趣。它們很多如洗衣機翻動時製造出來般,就是看不明白那些文字。

而作為一個創作人也是一個觀眾,我能作的就是以影像回應一下,想像洗衣機真製作了一份陳述,然後為它配上影像。
