Yu Cheng-Ta’s synchronized four-channel video Tell Me What You Want (2015-2017) will be exhibited at Instituto Alumnos, Mexico City.

The artists’ works employ layered forms of value-in-exchange with a social-political criticality. 3 artists from Taiwan and 4 artists from Mexico are invited with performance, video installation and text. The event is on view from November 8 to December 23, 2018.

Jawshing Arthur Liou at Red Brick Art Museum
Jawshing Arthur Liou’s work “Kora” will be screened in the exhibition “Rituals of Signs and Metamorphosis” in Beijing. Curated by Tarek Abou El Fetouh, the exhibition presents works by ten renowned artists from different corners of the Asian continent and situates their work between historical and contemporary systems of thinking, which allows the unexpected, the unknown and the mysterious to appear. The works of these visionary artists are displayed along an imagined ritual path of concepts and forms, materials and mediums, gestures and actions, and they explore different registers of metamorphosis. This poetic journey leads us to question the certainty of narratives, provokes reflections and ideas, and sparks the desire to seek out divinatory signs.

"Tell Me What You Want" at Kunsthal Charlottenborg
Yu Cheng-Ta’s synchronized four-channel video Tell Me What You Want (2015-2017) will be exhibited at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen. The film screening will be followed by a talk between Yu Cheng-Ta and art critic Maria Bordorff.
Tell Me What You Want (2017) is a mockumentary in four chapters about desire, friendship, and negotiation between a foreign traveler and the local so-called ‘marketeers’ that he encounters on the street in Malate, Manila.
Using a fictitious name, ‘David’, Yu Cheng-Ta travels to Malate, shifting his identity between tourist, friend and artist, allowing him to get involved in ambiguous narratives and relations. In Malate, ‘tell me what you want’ is a common greeting referring to the transactional structures characteristic to the red light districts. By incorporating transaction as a concept for the production of the film, Yu Cheng-Ta delves into a blurred field of tourism, sex industry and performance.
The exhibition event starts from 17:00, September 26, 2018 at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen.
