New Pessimism: Tropical frontier
Eaton HK’s art gallery Tomorrow Maybe is proud to present New Pessimism: Tropical frontier. From 19 March until 30 April. The exhibition showcases a selection of works by Indonesian artists Natasha Tontey and Riar Rizaldi. Based on their research into social, technological, and ecological issues rooted in the landscape and social dynamics of Indonesia. Natasha and Riar are inspired by b-grade media, popular culture, social change-making, and indigenous movements. They explore the aesthetic of refusal, the campiness of social tension, and the horror imagery of social ecology in the tropical frontier.
From 12 March until 26 April, one of Eaton HK’s two fifth-floor artist studios will be transformed into an immersive exhibition by local artist Lousy. Lousy will immerse every detail of the room with his new series of work. Marking a breakthrough for his world-building venture, introducing more chaos and viscerality into his working process. The works investigate the ideas of balance, perseverance, and change. Viewers will be able to interact with the vividly painted amenities, including bathrobe, towels, plushies, and rug during their visit.
