About the exhibitions:

The title Glitch in the Matrix is borrowed from the film The Matrix, referencing the changes in the coded virtual world. For Luke Ching, his daily experiences often make him feel caught between a sense of déjà vu and jamais vu (never seen), leading him to question whether there is a glitch in the system. Early works of Ching's on view in the exhibition reveal political perspectives that are relevant to the current social climate and which are pursued in the new works on view as well.

Confidential Records: Overwrite presents three parts of Vvzela Kook’s science fiction series Confidential Records, ongoing since 2016 and which originated in Kook’s extensive research into the history of Kowloon Walled City, drawing inspiration from scientist Ray Kurzweil’s Law of Accelerating Returns to extrapolate a future in which the development of artificial intelligence is so advanced that it threatens the existence of humans. Newly commissioned for this exhibition, the eponymous work Overwrite takes the form of a multimedia walk, where the audience is invited to follow a route out of the exhibition space and into the streets near Para Site, guided by a series of clues and instructions.

關於展覽:

「母體錯誤」展覽題目引自電影《22世紀殺人網絡》中虛擬世界程序變更的隱喻。對程展緯來說,當下現實生活中日常所經歷的令他常感到徘徊在「似曾相識」和「舊事如新」之間,促使他提問是否系統出錯了。是次展覽展出十多件新舊作品,舊作中具政治意味的論述與當下社會仍有着持續關聯,舊作與新作形成對話。

「機密錄:重寫」為曲淵澈自2016年以來持續進行的科幻系列創作《機密錄》三個部分的呈現。《機密錄》系列的創作背景源於曲氏對九龍城寨歷史的廣泛資料搜集及研究,參考了科學家Ray Kurzweil的「加速回報定律」,以人工智能發展將超越人類並其產生威脅為故事主軸。《機密錄:重寫》為此科幻系列與展覽同名的全新委託創作,以多媒體導行形式進行,帶領觀眾走出展覽場地,進入週邊現實的街道上追蹤一系列線索。
