SIMON PERICICH ‘!!!ALLTOGETHER NOW!!!
PROJECTS @ ART CENTRAL HONG KONG 2017
CENTRAL HARBOR FRONT HONG KONG
21 – 25 MARCH 2017
Art Central Hong Kong will showcase large scale installations of 6 progressive contemporary artists. Curated by Jims Lam Chi Hang, recognised as one of Forbes 30 under 30 in Asia in 2016, each work features tactile elements and prompts the viewer to further engage in their surroundings.
Simon Pericich’s !!! ALL TOGETHER NOW !!! constructed of local garbage and shopping bags will be installed at the fair as part of the PROJECTS sector.
Pericich’s interdisciplinary practice explores dystopic visions of the future, apocalyptic ideas and what he has described as the “hilariously doomed nature of humanity”.
The work is transitorily grand and expansive, billowing ominously. On closer inspection the huge clouds humorously reveal they are made from inexpensive and empty rubbish bags, a pithy irreverence regarding the festive madness of commercial Art Fairs and contemporary Art.
