"HUNGRY FOR LUXURY" will be on display from 16.1.16 to 30.1.16 at ROBINSON 5TH FLOOR,THE HEREEN.
260 Orchard Rd, 238855. SINGAPORE
The revered CHANEL NO.5 is created using the most simple and basic of the Asian staple - RICE.
The inexpensive yet culturally iconic rice grain sculptured the carcass of this legendary parfum, dripping in solid gold acrylic as fluid symbolism of the notions of luxury, status and need.
I have chosen the delicate pairing of a legendary exquisite scent with the legacy of Asian sustenance that feeds millions to mirror the impending issue that the world is facing - Hunger.
I strongly question the definition of hunger and luxury. Of staple and status. What feeds you personally?
I believe and hope with the right education and awareness, the hunger of luxury can assist and benefit the hunger of those living disadvantageously.
As an artist and consumer of both, I am endeavoring to deconstruct and examine the prepositional relationships between the words HUNGER and LUXURY.
Would you like a bottle of Chanel No.5?
