Highest Form of Hope, 2018

Documentation Photography of an Installation

 

A site-specific installation which paralyses a studio space within the art school. Intense labour was poured to block the studio, rendering the space from being productive to unproductive using un-primed canvas. The almost-sculptural outcome was then photographed, yet the accessibility into the space was prohibited, so to refuse any conceivable transformation of an artistic experience into a personal possession fused by the social-media mania today, a modern observation described by John Berger's in his book Ways of Seeing.

 

Despite the contemporary storm in the world with increasing focuses on the non-materiality and the growing intertwine between arts and politics, the art school has, almost surrealistically, remained as a pure object-driven shrine.
