The Rhetoric of the Rebellion of Moving Images
May 7th, 2018Type: Image
Author: Chen, Wan-yin Editor: Rikey Tenn
Note: The curator, Huang Hsiang-Ning, set out to explore the contemporary mission and deformation of moving-image arts through the title "The Rebellion of Moving Image." The "rebellion" of moving image attempts to challenge the habitual logic of the operation of modern society with five artworks. However, with moving-image arts being prevalent in today's art, shall there exist rebellions of other media? Or, when "rebellion" has become a form of artistic rhetoric, how should an artist establish the politics of one's own commitment. The only sound artist, Wu Tsan-Cheng, reorganizing the history of spaces through the narrative of sounds, has been the oddity in this exhibition. In the times when the relations between sounds and images are receiving attention, the exhibition reminds us of the practice of "narrative as the deployment of sounds and images," an issue moving-image artists have to respond in this post-media era.
