ABOUT THE SHOW:
Are there monsters under your bed? Do they crawl out from underneath, and frighten the hairs off your neck? Or do you feel safe knowing they are watching over you? There is only one way to find out…
Young Soy Gallery is proud to introduce Monsters and Makers, an exhibition featuring Benson Koo, Mooncasket, and Tyler Jackson Pritchard.
These humans explore life, death, good and evil: heavenly heroes and vicious villains, in an attempt to traverse ancient and contemporary conceptions of ferocious figures. Koo’s black and white appearances haunt you as they approach you, crawling off the two-dimensional page. Mooncasket blurs our preconceived notions of good and evil, depicting affectionate monsters who present little threat. All while Pritchard’s abstract figures are ‘holy’, but his Gods are mere mortals that we have succumbed to worshiping. Let this exhibition in, and let it force you to reconsider popular notions of behemoths in both good and evil contexts.
