CLERKS’ QUARTERS: CAN THERE BE FORGIVENESS is the second iteration of a new scenographic exhibition platform by Berlin-based artist Adam Shiu-Yang Shaw. Three distinct moments present an enduring transformative setting and storyline for Shaw’s intricate stagings, which are an immersive but delineated scenography. Shaw stirs up the thematics surrounding the pioneering North American settler mythology, and expands its elements into realms of Protestant labour ethics, Roman Catholic notions of repentance and Buddhist practices of renunciation.
