About this Event

李繼忠WMA 委託計劃「過渡」最終章:「醒來已是百年身」

李繼忠個展「醒來已是百年身」,是藝術家為WMA 2017/18 年度委託計劃,圍繞「過渡」主題而創作的項目《復還、繕修與進退維谷》的最終章。是次展覽是繼2019年於WMA Space的「無法憶起 怎樣到達這裏」後的壓軸之作。


李繼忠的新書《無法憶起 怎樣到達這裏》亦將展覽期間推出,一個模糊地理、時間和個體界限的作品。六位敍述者將以不同的語言朗讀書中六位人物的讀白,屆時新書及六本小冊子將一同與絲網印刷的讀白展出。

Finale Showcase of Lee Kai Chung’s Commissioned Project Exploring ‘Transition’: ‘Once I Wake Up, My Body is Old‘

‘Once I Wake Up, My Body is Old’, a solo exhibition by Lee Kai Chung, is the finale of the project The Retrieval, Restoration and Predicament, which Lee conceived around the concept of ‘Transition’ for the WMA Commission grant (2018). It is preceded by ‘I Could Not Recall How I Got Here’ shown at WMA Space in 2019. The latest exhibition will be on view at WMA Space from November 12th to December 6th.

‘Once I Wake Up, My Body is Old’ revisits the seizure of 11 bronze statues by the Imperial Japanese Army from the Statue Square in Central during the WWII and their subsequent return to Hong Kong, a 30-minute-long interweaving of wartime and personal narratives.

In his quest to extend the acts of re-imagining, Lee has organized a series of boat trips to relive the entrapment—and the darkness of transit—during wartime. A video documenting the trips will be later unveiled at the exhibition.

The artist book launch of I Could Not Recall How I Got Here, a work that encapsulates the blurring of geographical, temporal and individual boundaries in the artist’s project. Six narrators will read in different languages of the six characters in the book. The book and the six booklets will be on display, along with silk screen prints of the scripts.
