The K11 Art Foundation presents Everything’s Alright from 12 August to 8 September 2016. Curated by Vivian Poon, the exhibition showcases six groups of artworks with a total of over 40 pieces by the two-person art collective Dirty Paper. The art pieces range from paintings to installations and sculptures, inspired by the delightful absurdities of everyday life in Hong Kong.
The artists are imaginative and thoughtful; they intended to provoke the rethinking of our everyday life. For instance, one of the art pieces, Puberty Once Again, makes good use of the physical changes that puberty brings on to convey a sense of irritation and uncontrollability in life. In another piece, Unsuccessful Admission, the personification technique is employed to present the various faculties of Hong Kong’s nine universities. And the different time and effort needed to study a particular subject.
Everything’s Alright is the second under the banner of As Far As Near, the latest KAF project to incubate emerging Hong Kong artists and curators. The artists present the far but near reality and guide audiences to have echoes in their hearts.
