Before Binge Watching
Taipei Contemporary Art Center
Curated by Shih-yu Hsu with works by Claudia Bitran, Xie Yi, Ni Xiang and Ran Li
Television recalls a sense of nostalgia. We as viewers turn to contents on online media platforms, such as YouTube, Facebook or Netflix. Endless shows, series and movies await and on demand. TV as a telecommunication medium is gradually replaced by personal computers, smartphones or tablets, becoming an extension of the screen. It is, however, once the dominant tool to disseminate moving images and to construct daily visual experience. Through television screens and TV broadcast networks, ideology embedded in images and moving are made, transmitted, displayed and assimilated into a state of consciousness. In addition, TV programs are divided by time slot, forming a TV flow that allows viewers watching program after program, preparing the foundation for the upcoming age of binge watching. The 2018 Video Lounge Series 1: Before Binge Watching focuses on works that appropriate, mix and bricolage forms and visual elements commonly seen on TV. In these works, artists take a double role of being a spectator and a image maker. Would they eventually lead the ways of seeing to building a “imagined community” with the visible other, or force us to linger in a limbo with infinitely gawking?
