Pleased to share Wong Ping’s participation in the 6th Athens Biennale: ‘ANTI’. Curated by Stefanie Hessler, Kostis Stafylakis and Poka-Yio, this exhibition dissects the way we polarize, fight and antagonize in the age of social media, of neo-reactionary movements, of post-truth nihilism. On view is Wong Ping’s ‘Jungle of Desire’ (2015), a single-channel video animation which follows a grown man’s self-loathing as he is incapable to fulfill his wife sexually, and who ultimately succumbs to at-home prostitution and is taken advantage of by a cop. Depressed and incapable, he speaks of taking to the hills and indeed his own life.
