CLEANING THE MUSEUM
OLIVER/OLIVER (HONG KONG)
Single Channel Film
It is almost hard to grasp one's being and one's art practice. They are always evolving before we remember what we were struggling with. When the pandemic started in January artists again questioned their own importance in society. It is a lot to realise you can never really go off-grid. The books we reread, the new books we rewrite, the future books we already memorized - history is not only repeating but to remind our artists-selves’ what are our being and practice.
Friendships are stronger, artist collectives become families, gallery newsletters become heartwarming essays, artist-acquaintances become personal grocery shoppers… What do we do with ourselves? How do we do this together. How are we bringing ourselves into institution again with a cleaner mind after we have seen this?
