藝術上,「瀆神」可以比擬為藝術家創作的手段,諸如挪用和概念轉換,均給予已有事物新的意義。是次展覽由姚少龍和陳凌欣聯合策展,展覽《Play. Boredom. Worship.》將展示香港六位新晉藝術家的作品。藝術家們通過和策展人之間的討論和辯證,他們的作品將以不同的態度和角度去演繹展覽的主題。

South Korean-born German philosopher Byung-Chul Han once quoted an example to explain the Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben’s concept of ‘profanation’: During the recession period in Greece, a group of children discovered a large amount of banknotes in a ruined house. Instead of using them as what money is supposed to, they playing with them and tearing them to shreds. Profanation is an act of taking sacred things from gods and turning it into mortal usage. By quoting this example, Han portraits a post-apocalypse world where money has lost its meaning, and we are shredding paper for fun, like the ‘profanation’ act of the children.

Perhaps in arts, ‘profanation’ could be described as the way of how artists create through appropriation and conceptualisation. Both ways are giving new meaning towards pre-existed objects and subjects. Curated by Alex Yiu and Suze Chan, ‘Play. Boredom. Worship.’ will present new artworks from six emerging artists from Hong Kong. Through dialogue and discussion with the curators, the artists interpret the idea with different perspectives and angles with their artworks.
