Artist

Samson Young

Samson Young (Hong Kong, born 1979) is an artist and composer based in Hong Kong. Young’ diverse practice draws from the avant-garde compositional traditions of aleatoric music, musique concrète, and graphic notation. Behind each project is an extensive process of research, involving a mapping of the process through a series of ‘sound sketches’ and audio recordings. His drawing, radio broadcast, performance and composition touch upon the recurring topics of conflict, war, and political frontiers. Young was the inaugural winner of the BMW Art Journey Award at the Art Basel Hong Kong 2015. His recent solo projects include Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan (2015); Team Gallery, New York (2015); Para Site, Hong Kong (2016); Experimenter, India (2016); and Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Germany (2016).

As a practising musician, Young is the member of multiple bands and has collaborated with ensembles and orchestras worldwide. He has participated in international music and performing art festivals including Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik, Darmstadt; Fusebox Festival, Austin; New York Electronic Art Festival, New York; Tonlagen Festival, Dresden; Transart Festival, Bolzano; and MONA FOMA Festival of Music and Art.

Introduction

Samson Young (Hong Kong, born 1979) is a multidisciplinary artist with a background in classical music and composition. His works range from drawings, videos and mixed media installations, to multimedia walks and performances. For the 57th Venice Biennale, Young has created a new body of work that attempts to reframe the popularization of ‘charity singles’ – purpose-made recordings for charitable causes, featuring a super-group of artists – as a historic ‘event’ and a culturally transformative moment. Charity singles were most widespread in the 1980s, and coincided with the rise of neoliberalism and the global popular music industry. In 2014, Bob Geldof and a new group of artists attempted a remake of the iconic Do They Know It’s Christmas to support West African nations in their fight against Ebola. A perceived ‘out-of-timeness’ of the contemporary remake left a mark on Young’s consciousness, setting him on a course of research that informed this exhibition.

Through a deliberate repurposing and creative misreading of such iconic titles as We Are the World and Do They Know It's Christmas, the artist generates a series of objects, works on paper, and multi-room sound and video installations that together constitute a unique audio-visual experience. The exhibition is conceived of as an album unfolding in space to be experienced in person. In here, the logic of conventional charity songs are blurred or left behind, the coded conventions are upturned or abandoned. The artist is not presenting us with merely a critique of cultural artefacts. Rather, he is simultaneously exploring the troubling ideologies as well as the genuine affective qualities that these songs and their aspirations embodied, thus bringing together many political vantage points in a cross-cultural context.

Artworks

簡介

楊嘉輝(生於香港1979年)主修古典音樂與作曲,是一位跨媒體藝術家,作品涵蓋繪畫、錄像、混合媒介裝置、多媒體導行及展演等。這次他為第57屆威尼斯雙年展創作的全新藝術作品,嘗試以歷史「盛事」和文化轉型時刻作為框架,重新闡述盛極一時由群星獻唱、專為善舉灌錄的「慈善單曲」。慈善單曲適逢新自由主義的熱望冒起及流行音樂工業全球化,於1980年代廣為流行 。音樂人Bob Geldof與一個新的群星組合於2014年再度灌錄《Do They Know It’s Christmas?》,支持非洲對抗伊波拉病疫;這次灌錄有種難以解釋的怪異感,在楊嘉輝的意識中留下印記,引領他踏上這次展覽的研究之旅。

楊嘉輝藉着為《We Are The World》及《Do They Know It’s Christmas?》等經典曲目故意重賦新用和作出創意誤讀,創作出一系列物件、紙本作品和聲音空間裝置,合而構成一個獨特的視聽經驗。展覽構思成一個在空間中開展的音樂專輯,讓人親身體驗。在此,傳統賑災歌曲的邏輯變得模糊或被捨去,經編排的慣例被翻轉或揚棄。楊嘉輝藉着為經典慈善單曲作出一系列重新挪用和「故意誤讀」,並非純粹為向我們呈現他對文化產物的批判;反而,他在同一時間,探索這些歌曲及其抱負所體現那些令人困惱的意識形態和真實的情感特質,由此,他在一個跨文化背景下,將眾多政治觀點匯集起來。

The Venice Biennale, founded in 1895, has been one of the most important cultural institutions in the world. Covering a wide range of disciplines, including art, architecture, cinema, dance, music and theatre, it aims to promote new artistic trends in contemporary arts. The documentation of its main activities is contained in its own Contemporary Arts Archive, which is a key point of reference for the study of contemporary arts.

For more information, please visit www.labiennale.org

Past Exhibitions

Since Hong Kong’s debut in 2001, the goal has always been to use the Venice Biennale as a platform to promote Hong Kong artists on the global stage. The past participating visual art artists include Lee Kit, Kwok Mang-ho (Frog King), Pak Sheung Chuen, MAP Office, Hiram To, Amy Cheung, anothermountainman, Chan Yuk-keung, Para/Site Collective, Ho Siu-kee, Leung Chi-wo and Ellen Pau.

The 57th Venice Biennale is the third collaboration between M+ and ADC, following the acclaimed reviews for Lee Kit - You (you). in 2013 and Tsang Kin-wah: The Infinite Nothing in 2015, on this representation of Hong Kong contemporary art at one of the most important international platforms.

This BBC documentary was made in 2004, on the 20th anniversary of the recording of ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’, a charity single in aid of the famine then raging in Ethiopia. The event was hosted by Midge Ure, who, along with Bob Geldof, wrote and produced the single that went on to sell almost 12 million copies worldwide and generated millions of dollars. Featuring some of the biggest names in Britpop at the time—Sting, Bono, Phil Collins, George Michael, and Boy George—Band Aid was the first celebrity charity project that sparked legions of imitators. Its success provoked an inevitable backlash, with some accusing it of patronising Euro-centrism—the ‘we’ of the West who live in a world of plenty versus the ‘they’ in Africa who live in a land where ‘no rain or rivers flow’. More seriously, many questioned whether such one-off acts of charity did more harm than good. Despite such criticism, one cannot help but be touched by the enthusiasm and optimism of these thirty or so, commonly perceived as vain, self-centred and damn attractive people, who, on a certain November day in 1984, looked out into the world and believed that they could change things for the better.

Unlike in the West, where charity is often about ‘us’ and ‘them’, charity Hong Kong-style almost always looks inwards, to ‘ourselves’ or to our ‘brethren’ in China. In 1991, when floods devastated large parts of eastern China, virtually all the biggest stars of the Hong Kong film industry got together to make The Banquet in order to raise money for victims. Based on a 1959 charity film that raised funds for the South China Film Industry Workers Union, The Banquet attempts to extol the virtues of filial love over money, but in the end the lead characters—a materialistic couple played by Eric Tsang and Do Do Cheng—manage to get both. Despite the fact that the film was made in great haste and with everyone working for free in lieu of their usual hefty pay cheques, the end result—shamelessly sentimental, broadly humorous and relying on star power to hold together its outlandish plot—was not much different from every other Hong Kong commercial films of the 1980s. Also shown in this programme is the MV for ‘Tomorrow Will Be Better’, a song featuring sixty top singers that was meant to commemorate the liberation of Taiwan from Japanese rule, but its upbeat tune and hopeful lyrics have made it a staple for numerous charity events.

Documentary maker Hubert Sauper piloted his own small plane from France to South Sudan on the eve of the latter’s declaration of independence from Sudan in 2011 to record the people and stories behind the birth of a nation. We Come As Friends shows that, despite the aspirations of its people for freedom and autonomy—some 98.8 per cent of the people voted in favour of independence—the country remained, as the director says in his voice-over, ‘enslaved, dispossessed and colonised’. The new colonialism of the twenty-first century is a mixture of the usual suspects (like Christian missionaries) and new players, such as oil-hungry Chinese companies. It is easy to snicker at a missionary’s obsession with putting ‘proper’ clothes on naked African children or the businessman who speaks of helping South Sudan and making a profit in the same sentence, but, as the film progresses, it becomes clear that the situation in that country is no laughing matter. Soon after independence, civil war broke out in South Sudan over oil and land which goes on to this day. Sauper’s film closes with images of a brutal battle juxtaposed with shots of Western tourists lounging at a resort swimming pool: a sadly apt metaphor that holds true not just for South Sudan, but for much of the developing world.

《Do They Know It’s Christmas?》的大碟封面色彩斑斕,男女老幼圍在聖誕樹旁歡聚慶祝,與同在畫中的兩個飢瘦兒童對比強烈。1984年英國歌手Bob Geldof造訪正值旱災的非洲後,回國發起「Band Aid」組合,組織當時英美樂壇最受注目的歌手,於聖誕節前夕錄製這首經典名曲。20年後,此曲另一位作曲人Midge Ure回首過去,走訪多位當時獻唱的歌手,回憶當年。細味1984年的流行樂壇,五味雜陳,有搖滾的菲歌連斯(Phil Collins),也有形象雌雄同體的佐治童子(Boy George),幾十位歌手因慈善之名而來,但世界有沒有因而改變?

《明天會更好》(1985)是華語流行樂壇史上一大成功慈善單曲,由60位華語歌手一同灌錄,仿傚同年美國歌手為援助非洲饑民合唱的《We Are the World》;1991年華東水災,香港演藝界總動員賑災,上百位明星演出「忘我大電影」《豪門夜宴》,作為當年「演藝界總動員忘我大匯演」的延伸。電影原版拍攝於1959年,是一齣悲劇,現代版則安排大團圓結局,旨在為觀眾帶來希望──曾小智(曾志偉飾)為了討好極重孝道的科威特王子,不惜哄騙其父合謀一場豪門鬧劇,吵鬧過後,最終賺回親情。「誰能不顧自己的家園,拋開記憶中的童年?」八、九十年代港台兩地的家國情懷可堪回首。

「英國人右手拿聖經,左手執槍枝。」一位南蘇丹人如是說。紀錄片《以朋友之名》(2014)由奧地利導演雨貝.梭裴執導,是他用超過20年來完成的「非洲三部曲」終章。2011年,導演乘自製小型飛機從法國前往一直受戰亂困擾的蘇丹,當年蘇丹人正進行全民公投,最後南蘇丹共和國宣布獨立。除了見證民主運動,電影更着重對石油公司與傳教士的批判。「我們有十分之一的土地是屬於外國人的。」導演全程手持鏡頭捕捉比西方世界落後200年的蘇丹人民生活,由他們親述困局。
