“DEEP BLUE” Shao-Gang WANG Video Screening

DEEP BLUE 汪紹綱作品放映
Curatorial Statement
On the beach, a group of young fellows are having fun casually, celebrating their coming-of-age ceremony.
 
The ritual implies their expectation toward future life and perplexity brought by the unknown world as if this very moment would last forever. Through the view as a usual recording of travels, Deep Blue establishes a scattered order of images that carries personal emotions and shady relationships among the companies. The images present the desire to resist but with no way to resist and the crave for love but nothing to love. Sprawling bodies and animal-like behaviors loop over and over again and attach to this estranged world.
Artist
Shao-Gang WANG
He is fascinated by his random encounters with people and the fragmented events that occur throughout space and time yet eternally in the process of facing oblivion. For him, the objects and places seen in the immediate reality are not simply as they appear, but exist before us through unseen processes; therefore, he raises many doubts to the reality that we live in and pieces together imaginary subjects and fictional perspectives in his works to liberate the obvious appearances of reality.
