a.m. space is delighted to present “TURN ON!”, a group exhibition from 24 August to 21 September this year, emphasizing the current development of moving images in Hong Kong and Taiwan, featuring works by Enoch Cheng, Hsu Che-Yu and Liao Chi-Yu, and showcasing recent graduates from various universities and colleges, demonstrating the new trends of moving images in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
As a remembrance of Zoopraixscope by Eadweard Muybridge, time resurgence as a movement physically through the connection between fragments of time, defining what comprises a moving image. In the Creative Evolution, Henri Bergson argues that moving images are just leading us into the illusion instead of reflecting the truth, for so much unreality happening in the twenty-four frames per second. Since the implementation of a variety of digital technologies such as virtual reality, it is perceived that the generation grew up in this digital age is already used to identify between true and false in an image. The reality perhaps is not of concern anymore, as a quote from Dream of the Red Chamber, “Truth becomes fiction when the fiction's true; Real becomes not-real where the unreal's real”.
