超体IV:超锐舞狂欢酷儿极限主义 HyperBody IV: The HyperRave of Queer Maximalism

Exhibition & Performance by Hyperbation

Artists: Hyperbation x Fadescha (Live set) x PATH
Time: Monday March 25th, 7pm - 10pm
Location: Banqiao Hutong 10, Dongcheng, Beijing

HyperRave is a multi-reality spatial experiment to explore the relationships among virtual reality (VR), Maximalism, queerness, post-internetand ACG (Anime, Comic and Games) culture.

HyperRave will transform I: project space into a virtual gamespace and techno club. By using VR/AR devices, we will create 4 special virtual dancing portals, and invite players to choose their own virtual body from different specifically designed genderqueer avatar, which corresponds to the game spaces of Hyper-religious Body, and Hyper-gastronomical Body, and Hyper-sexual Body. The guests will wear the VR headset and be transformed into the virtual characters, watch and dance with the unique spatial experiences constantly adapting and changing according to the DJ.

HyperRave tries to investigate the specific relationship between the body and space intermediating between virtual and physical spheres, and aims to combine techno music, queer body and game space into a hyper Gesamtkunstwerk. This experiment of sound and vision between virtual and physical space will ultimately lead to the idea of Maximalism, the school of aesthetic whose form and definition grow rhizomatically: “minimalism with a plus, plus plus.”

HyperRave investigates the aesthetic potential of VirtualReality (VR), in dialogue with architecture, games, theatre, performance, music and club culture, looking at each as a layering of realities. After our exploration with the Hyper-religious Body in Dunhuang, Hyper-gastronomical Body in Chongqing, we came to Beijing to research the Hyper-sexual Body. What can VR reveal about and how can it shape our idea of gender and queerness? What does virtual reality conceal and reveal about the physical reality? How will these new realities reflect our desire? What possibilities does the virtual space hold for club culture, another form of space-making that stems from a queer origin? Rather than having a sculptural statement, we will create a multi-reality spatial experience into which we invite collaborators and players to think through these questions together and co-create with us.

About the artist

Hyperbation is formed by Pete Jiadong Qiang and Mingxuan Xie as an art duo.

Hyperbation is a series of multi-reality architectural experiments located between physical and virtual spaces, which expands the notions of gamification, hyperisation and hyperlocalisation. It constantly investigates and practices of cultural and technological tools to the ultimate limit. This ''Maximalism'' approach strives for an alternative hyper nature.

Hyperbation tries to create new architectural onto-epistemology that erases the physical-virtual boundary and introduces a hyper-indexical design research approach on contemporary art, architectural, anthropological and technological media practices.

Fadescha is an artist and a curator working across arts and cultural discipline. She is also a DJ and Producer working with electronic music, field recordings and found sound.

PATH is a forward-thinking menswear brand under the direction of German designer Janine Grosche that aims to represent a futuristic version of what masculinity means by reinterpreting men’s fashion as we know it. By pushing the borders further PATH explores a radically different aesthetic for men, breaking with conventional norms regarding materials, construction, and expectations.

超锐舞狂欢是一场探索虚拟现实(VR)、极限主义、酷儿美学、后网络和ACG文化的多重现实空间实验。

超锐舞狂欢将会把 I: project space 变成一个虚拟游戏空间和Techno夜店。通过使用VR / AR设备,创建了4个特殊的虚拟跳舞传送门,邀请玩家从不同专门设计的酷儿性别角色中选择自己的虚拟身体,对应于超宗教体、超美食体和超性体的游戏空间。游戏者将佩戴VR头盔并转换为虚拟角色,观看根据DJ音乐不断变化的独特空间体验,并在其中蹦迪。

超锐舞狂欢试图研究虚拟和物理领域之间的身体和空间之间的关系,旨在将Techno音乐,酷儿身体和游戏空间结合为超级Gesamtkunstwerk。这个虚拟和物理空间之间的声音和视觉实验最终将指向极限主义这个概念, 一种形式和定义都像根茎一样扩张的美学:“极简主义加上加号加号加号”。

超锐舞狂欢会将研究虚拟现实(VR)的美学可能,并与建筑,游戏,戏剧,表演,音乐和夜生活文化进行对话,将每一个视为一种现实的叠加。经过我们在敦煌的对超宗教体,重庆的对超美食体的探索,我们来到北京研究超性体。虚拟现实能如何揭示或塑造我们对性别和酷儿的理解?虚拟现实相对于物理现实掩盖了什么又揭示了什么?这些新现实会怎样反映我们的欲望?虚拟空间对clubculture又带着什么可能性?这次展览不会通过雕塑式的声明,而会邀请玩家进入一个多重现实空间体验,与我们一起思考共同创造。

关于艺术家

骇人听闻! Hyperbation! 是一个跨学科艺术实验项目,由英国建筑联盟学院校友强家栋和英国格林尼治大学校友谢明炫发起。

骇人听闻是一系列介于虚拟空间与物理空间之间的“多重现实”建筑实验。它致力于研究并重新定义“超游戏化”,“超链接化”,“超本地化”,在持续藉助文化与科技工具的“修补术式”的运用中,它将施行“极限主义”并探讨一种另类的“超级新自然主义”。

骇人听闻尝试创建一种新型建筑与艺术思维,完全打破并抹除传统物理与虚拟空间边界并引出“超级索引化研究方法”,运用于艺术,建筑,人类学等。

Fadescha是一位艺术家和策展人,致力于艺术和其他文化学科。她也是DJ和制作人,从事电子音乐,现场录音和拾取声音。

在德国设计师Janine Grosche的指导下,PATH是一个有前瞻性的男装品牌,旨在通过重新诠释我们所知道的男士时尚来表达未来主义版本的男性气质。通过推动边界,PATH在探索一种完全不同的男性美学,打破了有关材料,结构和期望的传统规范。
