Power is a Virus
Genie de la Bastille
126 rue de Charonne, 75011 Paris
June 12-24 2018

Eng will present 2 projects: ‘The Executives‘ and the  ‘Iconoclashgiftsfeld‘ souvenir shop along with its recorded single channel video of its accompanying performance from March 2018 at Roulette. The Executives are illustrations responding  to the financial crisis of 2008. Headless (mostly)men in suits are posed with visualizations of their cognitive processes in place of their heads as well as composed in positions imitating insects, animals or plants.  The ‘Iconoclashgiftsfeld’ store is an ironic souvenir shop describing how hyperreality in a ultra-capitalist society reduces all experiences, political movements and ideologies into logos printed on souvenir objects. A project that analyzes  globalism, it focuses on how social groups build and destroy visual symbols  to assert their power or alter the landscape to reflect their identity.
