Beckoning the Mutation
Beyond fiction, mutation could be considered a genetic hiccup. Additional limbs, biomorphic smiles, the sweet tension of violence—mutation gets a bad rap—altering species’ formal makeup and genetic lineages at large, for better or for worse. Facilitated by manifold environmental factors, both organic and synthetic, our sense of uniformity is melting, and its melting is a harbinger of great change.
Including works by Andrew Luk, Ko Sin Tung, Mak Ying Tung 2, and Trevor Yeung, all based out of Hong Kong, Beckoning the Mutation explores some of the mutant states symptomatic of our changing environment. Their works in tandem render a space in flux, an indeterminate evolution of interface.
