Lucid Walking - MFA Graduation and Student Show 2023


Welcome to the School of Creative Media MFA Graduation and Student Show for 2023! The theme of this year's show is Lucid Walking. It expresses an act of borderless transformation from which the artists remain conscious in a dream and construct a world unbound by conventional visions. The young artists who join our programme have expanded the boundaries of what can be imagined through their compelling works of photography, sound art, interactive art, the moving image, performance and media installation.

Curatorial Statement 策展導言

Lucid Walking

The ability to stay conscious in a dream and construct a world unbound from conventional visions is akin to artmaking. The act of thinking, in a way, resembles navigating in a lucid dream, chasing butterflies that trapped Zhuangzi in the paradox of perceived reality.

Lucid Walking is an exhibition of continuous actions. Artists are oneironauts, the dream navigators, consciously diving into and resurfacing from facets of realities and the dreamland collecting threads of thoughts. To create from the digestion of what is past, now, known, or unknown is to dream lucidly. Processes grow into amorphous creatures, thinking as dreaming as making as living, all at once.

Between drowsing and awakening, reverberations emerge through artists’ search for the delicate balance between human decision-making and non-human life conditions, collections of vocabularies capturing love and squalor in corners of relationships, and divergent reflections on situations, experiences, and observations. Mediums flow from the machine to the flesh. Traces of clarity resonate in the realm of the unreal.

Lucid Walking is an act of borderless transformation, embodying the butterfly or Zhuangzi at one’s will. It doesn’t end here. The walk continues.
