Chan + Hori Contemporary presents Devices, a solo exhibition by Malaysian artist Chris Chong Chan Fui. Sabah-born Chris Chong Chan Fui’s dynamic artistic practice cuts across various platforms, from moving image, painting to photography and installations. Through his works, Chris queries society’s uncanny yet seemingly normalised relationships between natural and man-made constructs.. The works often suggest man’s deep-seated appetite for control, inevitably determining what survives ‘human preference’ above ‘natural selection’. Devices connect the dots to construct and define an aspect of Chris Chong’s artistic practice. Consistently echoing artificial mimicries and calculated capital gains achieved through exploitative harnessing of ecological and human assets, the artist contemplates how this mechanization of nature reflects squarely on our integrity.
