Singapore multimedia artist Mojoko has applied his famed signature style of fusing the traditional and modern to perfume making. In his new exhibition Sick Scents, he explores what happens when hyper pop culture collides with scent design and fragrance.
Mojoko has collaborated with scent designer Terry Jacobson (Founder of Allsense and Oo La Lab), to create a series of seven fragrances, all inspired by contemporary Asia. The artist has also created bespoke packaging and a series of artworks inspired by those fragrances exploring the links between sight, smell and memories.
The result is a collection of seven distinct and unique fragrances, all inspired by contemporary Asia, mixing traditional scents such and Rose oil and Mandarin with unexpected modern scents such as bubble gum and Cola.
The artist has created individual packaging for each of these limited edition fragrances and a visual artwork in response to the memories and emotions they evoke.
His work constantly pushes the boundaries of visual culture, exploring mediums and technologies which extend his visual language. He is known for his work across multiple mediums such as sculpture, animation, interactivity and now fragrance creation. The show will run until 25 June at Chan + Hori Contemporary at Gillman Barracks.
