As part of this year’s exhibition program on historicizing the contemporary, Grey Projects presents Messes and Overcooked Soups – prints, drawings, ink paintings and sketchbooks completed by Chun Kai Qun in the mid-2000s.
These works have been shown in a scattering of non-traditional spaces and small independent spaces, or have never been previously seen outside of a small circle of friends. These images, created while Kai Qun was in the midst of his NAFA studies and in his first years of artistic practice, display a mature grasp of the print process and the full range of his current interests and preoccupations with musical performance, social outcasts, poster art and popular food culture. Kai Qun’s love for the dense materiality in any image or art object, the preference for messiness and the intensifying of space into mood, are all already present in these early works.
