Sabah-born Malaysian Chris Chong Chan Fui’s dynamic artistic practice cuts across various platforms, from moving image, painting, photography and installations.
Through his works, Chris queries society’s uncanny yet seemingly normalized relationships between natural and man-made constructs of and in the everyday. They often suggest man’s deep-seated appetite for control, inevitably determining what survives human preference above natural selection.
"Devices" connects the dots to construct and define an aspect of Chris’ artistic practice. Consistently echoing artificial mimicries and calculated capital gains achieved through exploitative harnessing of ecological and human assets, the artist contemplates how this mechanization of nature reflects squarely on our integrity.
