Artist Statement

"Rafael's work focuses on the social and societal position of the artist in the age of a so-called attention economy, and analyses the ambiguities of artistic labor in particular. Basing his practice on complicit intervention in digital circulation, he rejects the idea of originality and invention but appropriates strategies from social and an economy based on (self-exploitation). His work is collaborative by nature and ranges from YouTube videos that erase themselves while being played, to the production of ceramic objects."

About In-situ

In-situ is a year-round artist residency in the heart of Hong Kong that fosters international exchange through open call applications.

In-situ is Latin for "in place". Our aim is to support artists with an experimental art practice. We are less focused on the final outcome, but rather, on the process of making, and of discovery. We also don’t ask for detailed project proposals, budgets, or schedules during the application process because we believe projects and ideas should be informed after spending time here, "in-situ".
