Colin CHINNERY (b.1971)
Bugs, wood, mirror, tin sheet, bark

One of the curators for EDIT: Image Fetish and Phobia, Colin Chinnery created his latest work Intent specifically for the exhibition. The work has attracted considerable attention from the audience. Dozens of stage beetles with giant pincers carry small photographs of black people’s mouth on their backs, and crawl around in a transparent square-shaped show case. Because their naturally combatant character, they fight with each other almost every time when they face on, which implies the meaning of image struggle. Moreover, the photos with slightly opened mouths and teeth set up repeated conversations and shouts between the beetles. In this humorous and vivid circumstance, the artist explains the interaction between images in another way, which creates a new technique of expression of image display and its concept.
