Pretty Grotesque by MOJOKO
In this circus of peculiarities, Mojoko explores the boundaries of the beautiful and the grotesque. In his first solo show, we discover the fine line between the grotesque, the strange, and the fantastic. With privileged access to Vue Privee archives, he has unearthed some bizarre documents and photography and remixed them to become the basis for this show. Mojoko’s intense graphic style is a reaction to today’s bombardment of images in global mass media. His upbringing in Hong Kong has influenced his work being surrounded by Eastern and Western advertising from an early age. Currently Creative Director of Kult magazine, he is part curator, part designer but 100% strange.
The exhibition runs from 10 March to 22 May 2011 at vue privee gallery.
