About this event

About Performance

Repetition Maximum

Wearing a muscle costume, image maker Liao Jiaming walks from JCCAC to RNH Space, connecting his two exhibition sites. The 30 minute performance will be live-streamed through Instagram, simultaneously through a first- and third-person perspective.

Repetition Maximum (RM) is a concept borrowed from weight training, referring to the most weight one person can lift over a set number of exercise movements. Beyond physically experiencing time and space, the artist utilises different media to survey their own body and others, in turn inviting the audience to reevaluate the physical and psychological weight of one’s torso in a society plastered with digital images.

Date: 30.10.2021 (Sat)

Time: 17:00 - 17:30

Venue: from L7 Green Space, JCCAC (30 Pak Tin St, Shek Kip Mei) to RNH Space (Rm 2313, Khora,128 Bedford Rd, Tai Kok Tsui)

About Exhibition

Too Good to Be True

Artificial intelligence (AI) trained with profile pictures from gay dating apps generates the images that form the main content of this exhibition.

The distortions in the generated images are a reflection of social media’s twisted perception of and desire for bodily perfection.

The ‘collaboration’ between the artist and the machine not only questions what photography is in terms of image production, yet also simulates how online dating images are produced, stored, chosen, and reproduced. This case study explores the notion of beauty and how it has shaped social behaviours and influenced our self-cognition. In addressing various aspects of online dating through Too Good to Be True, Liao hopes to foster dialogue on the complexity and fragility of interpersonal relationships.

表演簡介

最大重複次數

廖家明將穿著肌肉道具服裝從賽馬會創意藝術中心L7綠色空間步行至RNH Space,從而將兩個互相關聯的展覽連接。整個表演約30分鐘,並會於Instagram上以第一身視角及第三身視角直播。

「最大重複次數」(RM)是一個健身中常用的概念,所指在做某個動作能夠至特定次數的情況下,舉重員當刻能承受最大的重量是什麼。是次表演將此概念融入對人體的審視,把「特定次數」轉化為一種物理距離,廖家明透過對自身極限的挑戰,開展一段跨越時間和空間的旅程,透過不同媒介帶領觀者重新思考:在充斥數碼圖像的景觀社會裡,我們肉身的重量。

日期: 30.10.2021 (周六)

時間:17:00 - 17:30

地點:由賽馬會創意藝術中心L7綠色空間(石硤尾白田街30號)至 RNH Space(大角咀必發道128號宏創方2313號室)

展覽簡介

盡善盡美

人工智能以廖家明在同志交友應用程式上所收集的頭像,生成一系列類近圖像,折射網民對社交肉體的完美與扭曲病態慾望。藝術家「伙拍」機器,模擬圖像如何被生產、存案、選取、再生成,質疑「攝影是什麼」?探究網約對美的理解如何模塑社交行為及自我認知。
