Series: “No One Can Save Us” was derived from the larger-than-life Melting Superhero which was placed in front of the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) during the 2012 Future Proof exhibition. A collaboration between Mojoko and fellow artist Eric Foenander, the massive figure in blue tights and a red codpiece was hard to miss and even more striking for its lack of torso and head. At first glance it was comical – this gaudy, brawny mess dripping and dissolving like a giant candle. But it didn’t take long before the message was clear – No One Can Save Us. The artwork sums up how even our superheroes can’t prevent us from continuing to heat up the planet and destroy our own existence. The sculpture has recently relocated to the prestigious Parc De Villette in Paris for its summer show 2016.

Arty-Fact: The image transcends language barriers, admonishing an outright, crucial message – the death of the superhero or the false idol, our sense of humanity and the natural world, all due to the society’s endless strive for perfection and lust for the material. From a toy or comic character, the superhero transcends its form and is used here as a metaphor for our fascination and blind faith to phenomena and objects that seem great.
