This exhibition curated by Margarida Saraiva explores questions about relationships and impact in-between human existence, technology, information, media, artificial existence, and robotics. Artist, Wong Weng has been occupied with research, thinking, using intuitive cognition and improvisation to understand the subject of the future of society for almost a year. Which resulted in the process presented in the form of an exhibition that explores the paradox between the physical and virtual realities.
It presents a large scale artwork installation titled “The Omnipresence of Text”, “Complex” and “Past”, which is inspired by the Ether, a science fiction novel set in the United States written by a Chinese author. Wong Weng assumes the role of being the “manipulator” producing a time-contraction and displacement of the story setting, which expands the question of information, manipulation, and falsification into another dimension, one that is atemporal, transhistorical and transnational
