“Repetition maximum” (RM) is a concept in weight training, referring to the most weight you can lift for a defined number of exercise movements. The performance links up the parallel exhibitions “Too Good to Be True” and “Till Love Do Us Part”, which both tackles the relationship between queerness and social environments. During the performance, audience were invited to walk with the artist from one exhibition venue in Shek Kip Mei to the other in Tai Kok Tsui. Along the walk, the artist turned his artificial body and the metropolitan surroundings into a big canvas, as in such way he expresses as well as confronts the power hidden beneath the action of image manipulation.
