Rental United Solo Exhibition: Die Young — Hong Kong, China — 09-31, OCT 2014
EC Gallery, G/F, 72a Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong
Formed in 2009, Rental United is an artist group by Stephanie Sin, Damon Tong and Timothy Zauhou. They started its first appearance showcasing a real time video installation in Fotanian Open Studio 2010, and the group creates performance related art projects regularly. Their works are time based, which means the works will expire in a sense or already expired. Although like most performance artists documenting the live actions in video and photograph, the sensation, that different audiences and the collective experiencing during the event happening, cannot be replicated. In other words, Die Young may refer to what we see in a showcase is just a re-presentation of the dead work, which is passing away each second.
