Product Description

Provocatively titled ‘Peace Prosperity And Friendship With All Nations’, the show gathers a selection of recent work that reference everyday systems of governance. The title is also the name of a wall installation piece which opens the exhibition. The phrase’s absurd bombast is matched with camp, dripping typography reminiscent of horror comic book covers. Yet, the fact that this text is appropriated from an inscription on the Brexit 50-pence commemorative coin clouds one’s initial amusement with a sense of gravity. This expert swivelling between deadpan humour and precise critique of modern life is a key characteristic of Chong’s work.
