Catalogue “Polluta, Floating Artist Colony in the Sky” (2018)

[simple_crumbs root="Home" /]

 

 

“In 2084, Contradictoria has solved its pollution problem with Plan Polluta. Under this plan, air pollution is condensed into building bricks, which are used to build arcologies called “Polluta”, floating green vibrant colonies for artists! Artist can live, work and show for free, forever! It sounds too good to be true. It is.”

 

Following Hong-Kong artist Michelle Kuen Suet Fung’s popular exhibition “Polluta, Floating Artist Colony in the Sky” in summer 2018, Pro Arts is proud to launch her publication that not only documents her exhibition but expands the narrative. 

The catalogue features over one hundred pages of photographic reproduction and backstories of the Polluta, an in-depth artist interview and three scholarly essays to shed new light on her works, all specifically written for the book. The book also features many new images Fung created especially for the book, including a pull-out imaginary map, presenting all five imaginary countries in her grand narrative of the year 2084.

 

Catalogue Launch Event with Pro Arts Gallery, 30 November 2018.
