Plush Subjectivity and Post-Performance Talk

Free Admission|Walk-in

Plush Subjectivity is a scenario co-created by artist Ei Arakawa-Nash, his Asian colleagues based in Los Angeles and new acquaintances in Hong Kong.

Referencing American artist Mike Kelley’s sculptural work Deodorized Central Mass with Satellites (1991/1999), Arakawa-Nash, Kenny X. Li, Nakayama Izumi, Sara Tse and Shirley Tse operate a ball covered with plush dolls to question the subjectivity of Asians, especially the Asian diaspora whose identities are suspended between Asian and non-Asian countries. Do Asians look childlike, innocent and cute? Do they mask violence and aggressiveness with soft appearances like those of plush toys?
