Luke Ching: Allegory Practice of Personification
18.3 – 31.8.2017
Luke Ching always interferes with and responds to social issues through art. In this project, his art practice employs personification and community intervention to create allegories. According to writer Italo Calvino, allegories are derived from suppressed feelings. In a society where people are materialised, personification is a means to imagine objects as human and human as human again. Through communicating delicate sentimentality in the form of allegory, the audience is able to broaden their perceptions and imagination, while reflecting on public issues.
