Romancing with the new
July 20, 2016 § 1 Comment
Bringing together a spectrum of artists from Korea and Australia, in a range of extreme medias and then different ages and stages, New Romance does exactly that. New Frontiers at The MCA, Sydney, explores the edge of current/future humanness. 18 artists with a broad range of inspirations reflect on current issues such as hybridisation, science, environment, digital media and other sources. Bonbon Yang’s Species series (2012) touches a chord where he robotosizes discarded items such as umbrellas, coffee cups and newspaper and has them moving around – you could imagine our detritus taking over the world!
