04 Oct Daniel Ting Chong & Jordan Metcalf for The October Show
Daniel Ting Chong and Jordan Metcalf have collaborated on pieces for The October Show exhibition opening tomorrow night at Salon 91.
The series of works is entitled Fear.Less. and the objects are all representative of weapons/items used in acts of crime in South Africa, both by criminals and the law. The objects seek to playfully examine the place of fear of crime in South Africans, framing our obsession with violence and the casual paranoia we all seem to suffer from. By scaling the objects and turning them into art pieces, Daniel and Jordan aim to re-contextualise the place these items hold in our everyday psyche.
See these works and others by Andrew Sutherland and Paul Senyol at The October Show. For more info visit the facebook event page.
