HAPPINESS IS A WARM GUN: Solo Exhibition by Hanh
TAKSU Bali, 15 Dec – 15 Jan 2013
This December, TAKSU @W Retreat & Spa Bali is proud to present Happiness is a Warm Gun! A solo exhibition by Indonesian artist Hanh. In this series of works, Hanh creates new visions and different styles which are influenced by film, music, advertisement and all aspects of life. Viewers can expect to see a showcase of technics and explorations through Hanh’s latest series of mixed media paintings.
The title of the exhibition derives from an article in a gun magazine John Lennon had once read. Happiness is a Warm Gun was the slogan of the National Rifle Association. It struck Lennon as “fantastic, insane… a warm gun means you’ve just shot something”. In search of defining his identity within his work, Hanh emerged with his latest series of work that demonstrates his new style. Treading on the factor where overtones of sex and violence is rampant and raved, Hanh unravels that notion within his paintings to represent how imageries of sex and violence has been made into a commodity. Viewed upon through a rose-tinted glass of a mass media modern life. Almost like a common language, it is both spoken and understood fluently as a marketplace convention.
Exhibition runs from 15 Dec – 15 Jan 2013.
