Migrant Birds Space Berlin is pleased to present a two-person show Game of Codes, featuring Hong Kong artist Silia Ka TUNG, who is based in London, and Chinese artist Li MA, who is based in Berlin and San Francisco. This exhibition will present their latest works.
候鸟空间即将迎来一场由两位艺术家组成的全新的展览:Game of codes/游戏代码。此次展览的两位艺术家分别是居住于伦敦的香港艺术家Silia Ka Tung(董葭)和生活在洛杉矶的中国艺术家Ma Li(马理),此次展览将呈现她们二人最新创作的作品。

Game of Codes refers to the source code of game programs, which is the basic command in game development. Here the “game” concept is employed to refer to the two artists’ art practice as an endless language game while the code, as a metaphor, sees the work of the two artists as the process of writing code. Therefore, their unique artistic journey is formed via continuous “programming”.

The works of this exhibition include Tung’s soft sculptures, installations and paintings, and Li MA’s sculptures of material collage, video installation and live performance. The exhibition aims to form an insightful dialogue between the world of magic, the surreal, and the mundane daily reality. Both artists devote their artistic practice to explore the playful combination of materials and objects.
展览展出的作品包括Silia的软雕塑装置、绘画以及 Ma Li 的材料拼贴雕塑、录像装置作品和现场表演,形成了一个关于魔幻世界、超现实与日常生活真实界限之间有趣的对话。这两位艺术家都将自身的艺术实践立足于材料和物体趣味性组合的探索,力图突破其固有的一般性的局限并进行全新的诠释。
