Polluta Resident’s Portraits (2019)

 

In 2084, the imaginary country 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 live/work colonies for artists! Artists can live, work and show for free, forever! It sounds too good to be true. It is.

 

Polluta Residents’ Portraits (2019)

These brand new works subverts Polluta as a utopian artist commune. Fung invited her artist friends to join Polluta, asking them to fill out an entry form and express their opinions on the problem(s) of today’s art ecology. The result is sometimes humorous and sometimes unsettling. The viewer can enjoy a glimpse into the art world from an insider’s perspective.

 

There are five imaginary countries in total: Contradictoria, the Aristocratic Union, Dreamland, Northlandia and the Republic of Strata. These five micro-narratives will eventually weave together a grand narrative of year 2084, portraying the artist’s imagined futuristic geopolitical world in the Anthropocene.
