PLATFORM: Wong Ping

18:00 Sun 19 Jan 2020

Soho Theatre

Following last year’s acclaimed exhibition Heart Digger, a self-curated screening of Hong Kong artist-animator Wong Ping. Combining the crude, the grotesque and the political, Wong explores the pressing concerns of our age: existential angst, sexual impotence and societal limitations.

Straddling the chasm between low and high culture, Wong’s visually saturated, surrealist observations on contemporary life create a dystopian Kafkaesque world, depicting both mundane cruelties and a sense of comfort that our perversions and fantasies are shared by others.

After the screening, Ping will join programmer and writer Herb Shellenberger in Q&A. Programmed by Tom Grimshaw. Tickets £5. 57’


Introducing Platform, a new strand committed to spotlighting contemporary artist filmmakers working in unconventional ways across mediums. With the aim of presenting their work to new audiences, each has been curated with a venue in mind, translating their aesthetics and preoccupations through alternative and dynamic spaces.

This programme contains graphic animated depictions of sexual activity, crude language and violence.
