Hometown: Hong Kong
Based in: Hong Kong
Flashing, pop-like imagery; visual and auditory narrations that explicitly touch upon sex, politics and social relations; vibrant installations that extend into three dimensions the artist’s fantastical animation world – these are but cornerstones of Wong Ping’s (b. 1984, Hong Kong) practice that combines the crass and the colourful to mount a discourse around repressed sexuality, personal sentiments and political limitations. Hong Kong born and raised, Wong Ping discusses his observations of society, from teenage to adult-hood, using a visual language that sits on the border of shocking and amusing.
Running throughout Wong Ping’s animation work is the concept of control or limitation. In a sexual sense, Wong introduces the poles of desire and obsession – animating, illustrating and describing acts or scenarios that are brutally honest, or indeed, compose our personal, ‘evil’ shame.
