Song Song is pleased to present, "C.R.E.A.M." by King Rhomberg (b. 1993, Hong Kong, lives and works in Vienna).

When it comes to creating, King’s art is all about beginning from scratch and keeping an open mind during the process of building. It is a process that constantly recognises and appreciates change and fluidity, often experimenting with different materials. King relates his process to play while being aware of his surroundings and resourceful with the materials available. Just as in a state of play, the trial and error process is not completed until a blissful moment is captured; a balance between creating and over-creating, a simultaneous dance of both unleashing an idea and restraining it – a balancing act on the fine line.

 

This specific series of work deals with the topic of overindulgence in post-modern societies and how it hides, blurs, consumes and ultimately leads us astray from more essential facts. Exploring the phenomenon of fake news, King removes all too familiar images from their conditional context and jumbles these fragments up into novel stories; creating fiction that could likely be real.
