「山寨歌詞 THE SHANZHAI LYRIC」 2017年 @ 47 Canal (紐約)、The Stuart Hall Library (倫敦)、ArtReview Asia (待出版 forthcoming)、一份不斷增長的文獻 a growing archive一次採訪 an interview ⋯⋯



The SHANZHAI LYRIC is a body of research focusing on radical logistics and linguistics through the prism of technological aberration and nonofficial cultures. This inquiry into the glossolalic and supra-sensical text that often appears on counterfeit (shanzhai) clothing looks at how the distorted rhetoric of fashion and branding uses mimicry, hybridity, and permutation to revel in and reveal the artifice of global hierarchies. Real and ideal collapse in a lateral logic that generates new forms of agency among unlikely collaborators. Speaking at the seams of production, this work contributes to a post-colonial discourse surrounding the strategic use of language as a mode of resistance. How might new fabrics of relation be woven from the detritus of consumerism?

鄭氏廣播電台第四期 Widow Radio Ching Act IV攝影 photo // 胡安 Ann WOO




On 24 November 2017, ACT IV of WIDOW RADIO CHING streamed live from the banks of the Pearl River into the halls of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London with a series of talks, readings, stories and watery soundscapes. DJs, hosts and participants traced a psychogeographic dérive together, broadcasting in motion from the late night streets of Guangzhou, over the Sea Pearl Bridge and ‘on the balcony’ of Soeng Joeng Toi.

WIDOW RADIO CHING rewrites a fragmented and amorphous ode to the hydrofemme as a sonic essay in (radio) waves, transmitting her as a multi-headed heroine who traces the fissures between bottom-up social organization and top-down politico-economic power.

– – –

ACT IV of WrC was made possible with the collaboration of Soeng Joeng Toi and Siugat (Qii Snacks Records), with additional shout-outs to Jade CHAN, Dongdong, Miaozi/Money/Big Beauty and Boat ZHANG. The recording will be archived and made available for listening online soon(ish).

In fact, one may locate within the work a sense of failure——financially, temporally and otherwise——but this is only when evaluating according to capital-driven margins of success. In an alternate lexicon, ‘failure’ reads stubbornly as the will to resist and indeed a stealing of time.
