1. PHD Group: Virtue Village: Village Porn
Virtue Village, formed by artists Joseph Chen and Cas Wong who named their group after old public housing estate blocks in Kowloon City, likes exploring topics of queer subculture, fetishes, transhumanism and contemporary spirituality. Their latest show reflects on how rural life and ancient rituals are reinterpreted by contemporary society: machinery and cyborgian identities replace farm animals and offer the possibility of a transhuman existence; gatherings remain seductive in the modern era even when ancient rituals are commodified as charm and trinket. Through the show, the duo ask the question: in the post-internet, post-human world, what does it mean to build, live in and reproduce as a "village"?
