曲淵澈:機密錄:重寫 Vvzela Kook: Confidential Records: Overwrite



Para Site藝術空間榮幸呈獻本地藝術家曲淵澈的個展「機密錄:重寫」。是次展覽為曲淵澈自2016年以來持續進行的科幻系列創作《機密錄》的三個章節的呈現。「機密錄:重寫」由Para Site藝術空間策展人何思穎策劃。


《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展的「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。作品第一章《雙城》內,以豐富的想像重塑出一個虛構的未來城市景觀,揭示未來將由人工智能接管統治,而隱藏地下並未被清拆的九龍城寨則成為人類的最終防線。第二章《行刑》,人工智能與人類的衝突達到高潮,反映出反烏托邦社會內個體抗爭的普遍現象,以及過去、現在及未來不同的極權主義政權間的共性與瓜葛。


與展覽同名的全新委約創作《機密錄:重寫》為此科幻系列的第三章,將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。導行由作品內的人工智能角色指引,該角色轉投向人類一方並以偵探身分刺探人工智能當權者對人類所進行的意識形態改造。


曲氏作品的視覺語言富有想像力兼包羅萬象,透過3D打印物件、錄像及互動裝置從空間及感官上操縱展覽空間,混合建築及符控流域給予觀眾強烈的體驗。


曲淵澈(b. 1990, 生活工作於香港)於香港城市大學創意媒體學院取得藝術碩士(創意媒體)學位。作為一位新媒體藝術家,主要以聲音視覺作為創作媒介,包括聲音視覺現場演出、劇場,電腦動畫與繪畫。她的作品注重敘事性,跨媒介的敘事手法是藝術家表達觀念的重要方式。尤其是混合出現的圖紙,3D打印物件與計算機遊戲美學的視頻作品,顯示了藝術家運用的多種媒介與材料來視覺化她的研究型作品。她的作品曾經展出於香港Para Site(2020),空總當代文化試驗場(2019),台北當代藝術館(2019),亞洲協會香港中心(2019),香港大館(2019),香港微波國際新媒體藝術節(2018,2016),溫哥華PuSh表演藝術節(2017),六廠紡織文化藝術館(2017),香港藝術節(2015),中國聲音藝術大展(2013),德國 Friszchelle藝術節,杜塞爾多夫藝術節(2012)與 Hans Ulrich Obrist 與 Simon Castets 共同策劃的「89+」計劃(2012)。

Para Site is proud to present Confidential Records: Overwrite, a solo exhibition by Hong Kong-based artist Vvzela Kook, presenting three chapters of Kook’s science fiction series Confidential Records, ongoing since 2016. The exhibition is curated by Para Site Curator, Celia Ho.

The Confidential Records series 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. In Chapter 1 Dual Metropolitans, Kook constructs a fictional futuristic cityscape under the rule of AI, and reimagines the underground Kowloon Walled City as the last line of defence for the human race. In Chapter 2 Executions, the clash between AI and humanity reaches a climax, reflecting a universal condition of individual resistance in dystopian societies, and the parallelisms and entanglements between different totalitarian regimes in the past, present, and future.

Newly commissioned for this exhibition, the eponymous third chapter, Confidential Records: 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. These are laid down by the main character in the piece, an AI entity who had switched allegiance to humanity’s side and now acts as a detective into the ideological transformation enforced on humanity by its AI rulers. Kook’s works denote a highly imaginative and all encompassing visual language, inviting the audience to an intense experience in her mixed architectural and cyber space, built through spatial and sensorial manipulation of the exhibition environment, 3D-printed objects, videos, and interactive installations.

Vvzela Kook (b.1990, lives and works in Hong Kong) graduated from the School of Creative Media at the City University of Hong Kong with a MA in Creative Media. As a new media artist, she works in audiovisual mediums – including performance, theatre, computer graphics, and drawing. Her narration plays an important role in her work, in which transmedia storytelling is part of the artistic concept. The mixing of delicate drawings, 3D printing and video game optics in her videos especially show the wide range of media and materials usage to visually translate her research-based projects. Kook has shown her works at Para Site (2020), C-Lab Taipei (2019), MoCA Taipei (2019), Asia Society Hong Kong Centre (2019), Tai Kwun (2019), Microwave International Media Festival in Hong Kong (2018, 2016), PuSh Performing Art Festival in Vancouver(2017), Centre for Heritage Arts and Textile (2017), K11 Shanghai (2016), Hong Kong Arts Festival (2015), and “89+”program (2012) co-curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Simon Castets.
