Made in China
On view 4/18/2014 through 5/17/2014
1AM is pleased to present, “Made in China”, featuring works on paper, canvas, and posters by Hong Kong-based graffiti artists Xeme and Sinic. For their 1AM Gallery debut, they will explore the meaning of originality and challenge the line between what is authentic and what is fabricated.
Artists Xeme and Sinic constantly question what it means to be truly original. They have observed that, in China, most people do not care about originality, but are content with replicated versions of the original artifact. In “Made in China,” Xeme and Sinic juxtapose one-of-a-kind works with their fabricated versions, ultimately challenging the validity of both. Their tongue-in-cheek manipulation of pop culture imagery also investigates the idea of appropriating pre-existing images to create a new representation entirely.
