Song Ta at Para Site, Hong Kong

Song Ta is participate the group exhibition at Para Site, Hong Kong. Exhibition date:3.6-5.10.2015


The inaugural exhibition at Para Site's new home, A Hundred Years of Shame – Songs of Resistance and Scenarios for Chinese Nations, includes artists from Hong Kong, Taiwan, mainland China and beyond, and revisits a disobedient intellectual spirit under the current social and ideological conditions in the region. The invited artists often employ satirical, subversive, and original takes on history and the contemporary, helping to expose the dangers and clichés mobilized by nationalism's rise in China, as well as seeking for politics of the everyday that can move past the deadlocks within today's reality. A Hundred Years of Shame includes new and existing works by Cai Hui, Chen Shaoxiong, James T. Hong, Hu Xiangqian, Huang Xiaopeng, Kao Chung-Li, Meiro Koizumi, Kwan Sheung Chi, Lai Chih-Sheng, Firenze Lai, Liao Guohe, Song Ta, Inga Svala Thorsdottir and Wu Shanzhuan, Wong Wai Yin, Yang Jiechang, Trevor Yeung, Zhang Peili, and Zhou Tiehai. It also features the recording studio of the fictional label Xi Kang Records, named after the subversive scholar and musician of the Three Kingdoms period and thus attesting for dissent's long history and crucial position in Chinese culture. The label represents a wide variety of music of discontent from across the Chinese-speaking world, with selections by sound culture and independent music researchers and curators Chang Tieh-Chih, Amy Cheng, and Jeph Lo; and independent musicians Lam P (My Little Airport), Mei Er (Top Floor Circus), and Wutiaoren. Two rooms within the exhibition, the Academy of Shame and the Academy of Humiliation, display collections, archives, and libraries, with a special contribution from abroad by the Department of Mimetic Ignominy (Russia), devised by Ekaterina Degot and David Riff.
