We are pleased to announce an exhibition A Poetic Spendthrift by Cho, Hui-Chin on April 25(Thu.) to 27(Sat.), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Cho, Hui-Chin finished her Bachelor of Fine Art degree at Slade School of Fine Art in 2018. She graduated with first-class honours and made the dean’s list. Having grown up in a multicultural country, she prefers to use an amalgam of materials, especially vintage or antique materials, to prompt philosophical dialogues about the distortion of subject matter and abstract motifs, especially the grotesque iconography of babies as the motif sustains her work.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
My works are the postulate which is that painting, sculpture, photography are the same manifestation,
since they are identifiable in the ambitious depiction of concrete dimensions, and such ambiguities could be conveyed into a variety of compositions and motifs.
Materiality is an important facet to my works, notably objects which are antique, vintage or expired, which could correlated with existence between life and death.
Through my work, I intend to reflect on conflicting phenomenon, namely the inevitable relationship between obsessions and humanity.
Cho, Hui-Chin “A Poetic Spendthrift”
