Wong Ping: Golden Shower

Kunsthalle Basel, Steinenberg 7, Basel

An incongruous combination of dry humor, graphically explicit themes, and candy-hued, child-like forms seemingly built from the simple geometries of early video games pervades the digital animations of Wong Ping (*1984). For his first large-scale institutional solo show, the Hong Kong-based artist presents newly commissioned and recent videos, each within a new, specially conceived sculptural installation. They speak of our contemporary urban condition and its pathologies—whether they arrive in the form of alienation, misogyny, or self-loathing—unraveling some of the starkest realities of our own dark age with a touch as mordant as it is humorous.

Some of the artworks in Wong Ping’s exhibition Golden Shower contain explicit sexual content, therefore entrance is recommended to viewers aged 16 and older.
