Equipped with highly original ideas and impressive energy, artist collective Chim↑Pom has undertaken numerous projects intervening in society in ways that constantly confound our expectations. This exhibition will be the first-ever comprehensive retrospective of Chim↑Pom, bringing together major works from the start of their seventeen-year career to more recent years, plus new work produced for this exhibition. Dynamic exhibition design, rich in creative ingenuity, will assist in shedding new light on the ever-surprising world of Chim↑Pom.
The title Happy Spring signals Chim↑Pom’s hope for a brighter spring even amid this seemingly neverending pandemic, and that we retain our powers of imagination even if that long-awaited season arrives in the depths of adversity. In these unpredictable times, the powerful, convention-busting works of this enduring, but equally-unpredictable group of artists are certain to excite the imagination, and serve as a guide as we join in contemplating a better future.
