Pain and Pleasure: Rexy Tseng Solo Exhibition
2022.08.20-2022.11.13
The inspiration of “Pain and Pleasure” comes from the ebb and flow of adulthood, wavering between hope and despair, the exhibition investigates dark humor and unrequited desire. The overall concept reflects the existentialist view that only after accepting the impermanence and irrationality of life can one truly accept oneself.

 

The exhibiting works critique the subjects of the body, consumerism, and wealth inequality. Blurring human forms and objects, the works press sensations against logic. By expanding on intimate observations, the exhibition stages the unresolved past with possible futures, where Tseng addresses personal politics, technological flaws, traumas, and emotional residues.
