Talking Archive is a project developed by Hong Kong-based artist Wong Wai Yin around a psychic medium and animal communicator who talks to objects and spaces. Wong invites the medium to speak to various sites within Asia Art Archive and its collection in order to uncover their 'true opinions'. The medium directs questions to various AAA materials to include: as a historical document, how do you think history should be invented? As one of the oldest documents in AAA's collection, what do you think is the most valuable accomplishment by the organisation in the last 15 years? The findings will be presented in the AAA library in the form of a video and site-specific installation.
