Luke Cheng and Yun Liao in collaboration with Iain Nash
Immaterial and Immutable
Looking back at a conversational record spanning seven years, the two artists reflect on the textual and affective character of their inter-continental dialog. They explore the immateriality of intimacy (digital or not) by embodying it in the form of an epistolary novel and unraveling it into a physical space. In an act of self-disclosure that challenges the illusion of digital ephemerality, they reveal a difficult text touching upon issues of gender and sexuality and question how our experience of memory is changed by the omniscient social platforms bearing witness to our lives.
