Drafts for Intellectual Sensibility Relief: Review on Discordant Harmony
September 23rd, 2016Type: Opinion
Author: Hsu, Fang-tze Editor: Rikey Tenn
Quote From: 《典藏今藝術》no.288
Note: The article starts from Sun Ge’s “local conditions and customs” (diachronic regional characteristics) as the draft solution for “Asia”; to put it in a better-known way. The project Discordant Harmony, by four East Asian curators, was set to travel from Art Sonje in Korea, Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, to Kuando Museum of Fine Arts, which incorporates adaptations to Asian contemporary art performance in its travel span, and cross-border bodily involvement of the participant artists’. The author talks about the “queer body” smothered in the cold-war modernity, constructed for the need of nationalism and capitalism, from such perspectives as the artists’ personal biopolitics to the works, and the essence of historical narrative and the acclaimed collective problematization.
