PRESS RELEASE: DOWNLOAD

In The (un)-related Sceneries, Wong Perng Fey continues his introspection of his built and lived environment in Beijing, where he has been living since 2010. Migrant workers and artists, like Wong, face the constant threat of eviction and demolition of their homes as the Chinese government endeavours to turn Beijing into a “high level” international city by eradicating all types of informal settlements. Wong’s new works are informed by his experience of living in Beijing’s rapidly urbanising landscape. His practice draws from his personal account of being evicted to witnessing countless old villages being razed to the ground. In this body of works, Wong communicates his narrative of the destructive nature and haste of urbanisation versus the long histories that the villages housed.
