Pleased to share Samson Young and Wong Ping’s participation in ‘Fosun Foundation Collection’ exhibition curated by Robin Peckham. This group show is drawn from the Fosun Foundation Collection.
Emphasising a sense of play and intellectual witticism through the inclusion of unexpected sounds, ranging from the ring of Gameboys, fanfare rides and Cantonese nursery rhymes, to references of great works of fiction, Young builds peculiar scenarios that challenge one’s everyday associations with objects, stories and spaces.
On the other hand, Wong Ping’s practice combines the crass and the colourful to mount a discourse around repressed sexuality, personal sentiments and political limitations.
