Biography: Chun Kai Qun

Chun Kai Qun is concerned with the anxieties and desires of individuals living in contemporary society. He brings into play the art of miniature making, creating cataclysmic explosions, reminiscent of sensationalist blockbuster action flicks or video games. The perverse violence and gory carnality of the spectacle is trivialized and detached by means of miniaturization in his work, highlighting the anesthesia that decadent society has unconsciously induced in us.

He received his art education from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore, majoring in printmaking. Chun has actively participated in various art exhibitions and projects including Art Stage Singapore (2011), Utopia Highway at the Esplanade Concourse (2010), TransportAsian at the Singapore Art Museum (2009), Lost in the City at the National Museum of Singapore (2009) and the 4th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale (Art Exchange Program) (2009).
