The Exceptional Duet: Project Seeing
27.11.2020 - 05.12.2020

The world is dazzling yet it is also virtual: reality turns into fragments that become increasingly disjointed, images rush outside our bodies and inside our minds. Paul Virilio once said, “Images promote forgetting.“ Do you agree?

Project Seeing—a laboratory where we practise seeing. Those taking part in the experiment subject themselves to unease, uncertainties and instabilities,delving deep into their own memories as they observe one trial after another,traversing images, memory, narratives and dreamscapes, focussing on both the surface and core of contemporary life, constructing scenarios in which they question and observe each other.

If we creep slowly in a world dominated by rapid successions of images, how (else) can we observe?

 

Guidelines in the lab:

#1 Open all your senses

#2 Accept uncertainty

#3 Trust your partner

#4 Question what you see

 

Keywords:

Presence – Absence

Distance – Location

Subject – Object – Perspective – Frame

Exposure – Resolution – Pixel – Filter

The Exceptional Duet

After months of silence, two local creative teams joining hands with the HKRep to present groundbreaking works on our Black Box stage. We’ll take you on a sensory adventure as we ponder the crux of our own selves.

Chester Wong x Santayana Li x Ivanhoe Lam’s The Void and Little Breath Creative Workshop’s Project Seeing both feature performances that transcend conventional boundaries. Projected images and sounds expand our threshold of seeing and hearing, prompting us to delve into what we know and value. Join us on this journey about listening, observing and questioning.
