전시소개

Samson Young: Songs for Disaster Relief World Tour is the Hong Kong edition of the exhibition Songs for Disaster Relief conceived by multidisciplinary artist Samson Young for the 57th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale 2017. Featuring a series of sculptures, objects, videos, sound installations and site-specific pieces, the exhibition offers a unique audiovisual experience that re-examines the popularity of charity singles from the 1980s. Creatively repurposing and misreading iconic songs made by popular artists for charitable causes, Young draws on seemingly unrelated past and current events to explore the social, political, and philosophical implications of charity singles in a cross-cultural context. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of talks, guided tours, and live performances. Access services can be arranged in advance.

The exhibition is curated by M+ Guest Curator Ying Kwok, with M+ Deputy Director and Chief Curator Doryun Chong as Consulting Curator.


작가소개 

Samson Young (Hong Kong, born 1979) is a multidisciplinary artist with a background in classical music and composition. His works range from drawings, videos and mixed media installations, to multimedia walks and performances. For the 57th Venice Biennale, Young has created a new body of work that attempts to reframe the popularization of ‘charity singles’ – purpose-made recordings for charitable causes, featuring a super-group of artists – as a historic ‘event’ and a culturally transformative moment. Charity singles were most widespread in the 1980s, and coincided with the rise of neoliberalism and the global popular music industry. In 2014, Bob Geldof and a new group of artists attempted a remake of the iconic Do They Know It’s Christmas to support West African nations in their fight against Ebola. A perceived ‘out-of-timeness’ of the contemporary remake left a mark on Young’s consciousness, setting him on a course of research that informed this exhibition.

Through a deliberate repurposing and creative misreading of such iconic titles as We Are the World and Do They Know It's Christmas, the artist generates a series of objects, works on paper, and multi-room sound and video installations that together constitute a unique audio-visual experience. The exhibition is conceived of as an album unfolding in space to be experienced in person. In here, the logic of conventional charity songs are blurred or left behind, the coded conventions are upturned or abandoned. The artist is not presenting us with merely a critique of cultural artefacts. Rather, he is simultaneously exploring the troubling ideologies as well as the genuine affective qualities that these songs and their aspirations embodied, thus bringing together many political vantage points in a cross-cultural context.


참고

As part of the 57th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale 2017, M+ and the Hong Kong Arts Development Council present the collateral event, Samson Young: Songs for Disaster Relief. The M+ curatorial team consists of Guest Curator, Ying Kwok, with M+ Deputy Director and Chief Curator Doryun Chong as Consulting Curator.

Conceived by local artist Samson Young specifically for the exhibition, Songs for Disaster Relief is a new body of work that consists of a series of drawings, objects, videos, spatial sound installations and site-specific pieces. Together the series constitutes a unique audio-visual experience, taking visitors on a journey that attempts to reexamine the popularity of ‘charity singles’ from the 1980s. Through a deliberate repurposing and creative misreading of iconic songs made by popular artists for charitable causes, the work draws on several seemingly unrelated past and current events to explore the social, political, and philosophical implications of ‘charity singles’ in a cross-cultural context.
