1a空間榮譽呈獻當代藝術展《駭.動》,由駐德國視覺藝術家暨策展人Tuçe Erel策展,參展藝術家包括了德國駐柏林當代藝術家AslieMk, Korhan Erel, Göksu Kunak a.k.a. Gucci Chunk, Julia Nitschke 和香港藝術家曲倩雯。Tuçe Erel是次展覽計劃《駭.動》為1a空間主辦的《公開招募策展人/藝術家2019》獲選計劃。

《駭.動》 (Hactivate Yourself !) 的概念是由超人類主義和後人類主義主題所驅使而成。展覽將以藝術立場探討關於黑客文化,生物黑客運動,生命政治等主題,並通過行為藝術,表演裝置,視頻,聲音和特定場地裝置形式批判互聯網日常的使用。展覽將提出三個問題:我們可以如何破解/入侵我們的想法? 我們怎樣能擺脱生活的限制與規範?由於小規模的黑客行為也可以對我們日常的生活產生很大變化,因此這些提問都極為重要。
同時,我們怎樣能透過入侵/破解系統來造就更美好的生活? 在今天的社交媒體中,流行文化和許多被贊助的視頻都在推廣健康、講求質素和積極運動的生活。倒不如一同駭.動(Hactivate)我們的生活吧!

Korhan Erel
Korhan Erel is a electronic musician, improviser, sound designer based in Berlin. He plays instruments he designs on a computer by employing various controllers. He also uses analog and digital electronics. He composes and designs sounds for dance, theater, installations and film. He collaborates with dancers, video artists and spoken word artists. Korhan’s collaboration with Sydney-based video artist Fabian Astore “The Threshold” has won the Blake Prize in Australia in 2012. He is a founding member of Islak Köpek, Turkey’s pioneer free improvisation group, which is regarded as the band that started the free improvisation scene in Turkey.
Korhan’s computer performance system is called Omnibus. The instruments within Omnibus are a culmination of Korhan’s musical past and aesthetic choices. Omnibus instruments use concrete sounds (samples, field recordings), morphed and processed in realtime. They can be as simple as one single sample being played using a Nintendo Wii controller to a complex system that employs granular synthesis and spectral processing. The instruments are played interactively using Nintendo Wii controllers (Korhan’s choice of controller when he plays in ensembles with acoustic/electric instrument players), an iPad (used in solo/duo performances as well as ensemble concerts) and several midi controllers. No matter what technology he uses, Korhan always stays focused on the outcome and musicality rather than processes.
He performs regularly in Europe and in the Middle East as a solo artist as well as with his projects in Germany, Turkey and Switzerland. He has performed in Soundtrips NRW, Moers Festival, Labor Sonor, Klangzeit Festival, Borusan Music House Istanbul and many more fantastic venues and festivals.

Vvzela Kook
Vvzela Kook (B. 1990, Lives and works in Hong Kong) is a new media artist who mainly works in audiovisual mediums, including performance, theatre, generative video and drawing.

Kook’s video works combine technology with her artistic practice to reproduce and convert urban cityscapes into an integrated virtual experience, guiding the audience on a cybernetic journey. The condensed textures in her works connect with multiple sensual levels in our perception and reintroduce the unexplored potential of video as a medium. Kook has participated and shown her works in PuSh Performing Art Festival in Vancouver(2017), Mill6 Foundation (2017), Microwave International Media Festival in Hong Kong (2016), K11 Shanghai (2016), Hong Kong Arts Festival (2015), Sound Art China Exhibition (2013), Frischzelle Festival and Dusseldorf Festival (2012), and “89+”program (2012) co-curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Simon Castets. http://vvzela.co/
