Adam Shiu-Yang Shaw: 'Clerks' Quarters: Can There Be Forgiveness?'


"Clerks’ Quarters: Can There Be Forgiveness?" is the second iteration of a new scenographic exhibition platform by Berlin-based artist Adam Shiu-Yang Shaw.  A first rendition was held as an evening of performance within an installation by Shaw at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in March 2018. The upcoming rendition at Ashley expands on this one-night event and presents an enduring transformative setting for Shaw's stagings. The show will include several performances throughout the month of October, as well as an off-site public work at street level, as a collaboration with the exhibition vitrine SOX.

Through material work and performance, Shaw fuses several of dichotomies between exteriority and interiority, whether real and imagined. As an entirely created scene that oscillates between public plaza, private confessional, and museum display, "Clerks’  Quarters: Can There Be Forgiveness?" sees uncooperative voices entangle: the speaker, the spoken-to, and the third-person omnipresent.
