The“I & ME” Group Exhibition

May 27, 2021 / 5 Comments

The“I & ME” Group Exhibition

Anders Lindseth, Iabadiou Piko, Josh Reames, Julian Watts, Kour Pour, Mahsa Tehrani, Osamu Kobayashi, Yves Scherer, and Zhang Ji are part of the group exhibition "I & the ME" at the SHOPHOUSE gallery in Hong Kong. Artists are asked to make two pieces, one representing "I," the subjective side of the artists' self-evaluation, and the other representing "We," the objective side of the artists' self-evaluation. Another piece on "Me" – the objective side of self influenced by the market, this time looking at how artists navigate the art business today.

The exhibition is based on sociologist George Herbert Mead's notion of self from the late 1800s. The dynamic relationships between the "I" and the "ME," according to Mead, produce the self. The "Objective portion of self" is the "ME" - the opinions of others about ourselves. The "Subjective component of self" is the portion of us that responds to these attitudes.

“The art world has radically transformed in the past thirty years, turning into a multibillion-dollar international industry. Artists and their career are becoming commanded by the market system, often packaged as a celebrity with unceasing output for the growing demand in consumer culture, sought after as profit generators of the commercial powerhouse. Would artists be affected in expressing themselves under such influence?”
