“I sat in the archive reading room, waiting for the requested documents. The space was filled with a weighted silence, the intensity is more deafening than any sound that I have ever heard. Rather than saying it’s a sense of oppression, it is more of an auditory hallucination whirling in my head […]”


Taking place at the newly established project site of Archive of the People, <Can’t live Without> is an ongoing project that originates from Lee Kai Chung’s research on art archives and their social context in Korea and Hong Kong. The artistic research started with the sonic quality in visual archive, the body of work sheds light on how power structure influences pattern of archival practice and historiography. In comparison with national archives or historical archives, contemporary art archives differ in their constitution, discipline, ways of acquisition, personnel in charge, subjects, etc. Though art archives do not diminish its social context or reduce the discursive space exclusively to a confined realm of art; nevertheless, the oscillating status under artistic and archival context complicates the constitution and representation of art archives. The project is presented in a filmatic sequence of five chapters, which covers a rhizomatic network of social movement, language, mythology, geography and archival discipline. The notion of discontinuity for historic narratives that leads to a greater consciousness of events and individuals.


A handmade publication in limited edition will be available at the screening.
