Heart Digger at Cork Street - Camden Art Centre

Wong Ping, Heart Digger extended to a satellite exhibition at Cork Street.

The Cork Street exhibition included new inflatable sculptures, video installations, and two recent works – Fables 1 (2018) and Fables 2 (2019). Part of an ongoing series, these films were morality tales re-written for our dystopian age – modern day Aesop’s Fables. Wong’s creatures, including a convicted capitalist cow, a three-headed homicidal rabbit, and a telepathic tree, became the focal points of subversive domestic fantasies, holding a mirror to our own humanity.
