Interview with Christine Wong-Yap. Interview Series on Artopic.org.
“Irrational Exuberance (Asst. Colors),” … it’s my first proper solo show…. I’ve done solo projects and shows in non-gallery spaces, but this is the first time it’s just my work—my statement—filling a gallery space.
I’m transforming Sight School into a colorful shop-like interior populated with reconfigured discount store items. There will be an installation, sculptures, multiples, one-offs, and maybe even some readymades. They’re all in response to the idea of “cheap and cheerful,” modest ambitions, and pleasure. This comes out of my interest in happiness, psychology and optimism.” </div

Perlustration: An Image Viewed From A Disintegrating, Ratiocinative Perspective An essay on the work of Colin Stinson
