Chun Kaifeng
Richard Frater

FOGSTAND Gallery & Studio, in collaboration with Latent Spaces, Singapore, is pleased to announce the exhibition: Absolving the Object: Richard Frater and Kaifeng Chun.

Authenticity. Authenticity so pulverized that it now swirls in and around the self-effacing mimicry of being-material. A self-objectification in hopes to object to the inauthenticity of consumerism. The non-human-interfaced depiction of materiality is envisaged as a domain untainted by inauthentic relational forces motivated by systemic as well as individual speculation, prediction, and diversification.

Never-the-less, a subject inevitably rises to the top and - like oil brought up and atop water - we still catch a remarkable glimpse of the suspension of the self made possible by the objection of objects becoming “subjectivised”. Objects are objects in that they operate to object our attempt to absorb their often errant operations with our own.

Imagine the scene in Fantasia where Mickey Mouse brings to life brooms, mops and other objects to help him clean his master’s castle. The brooms and mops begin to move around and do their respectively built-in operations, sweeping, mopping and the like. In this exhibition, the inverse occurs, the artists instead become objects by taking on their subject’s properties, resulting in a cross-fire of appearances.

In short, the artists in this exhibition address operations assigned to materiality while their curator seeks to praise material outcomes that churn out inverted gerundial takes on portraiture.1
