Following the successful re-opening of Clutter Gallery last month, at the Ron English Re-Imagine show, the Beacon bunch are back for their Second Saturday opening with a rising star of the Designer Toy scene – Mr Kum Kum. This event will mark Indonesian artist, Mr Kum Kum first US solo show, where he will be showcasing a mixture of original releases created by Mr Kum Kum, and exquisitely hand-painted for the show. As with all Mr Kum Kum work, he has captured each piece beautifully with his camera (you can read about his photography in our Q&A post we compiled in June HERE). Lets check out some of the releases which will be available at the opening of the Silent Killer show tonight.
In five, you see nothing but darknessMr Kum Kum, July 2020
In four, you can’t feel your legs and arms
In three, you start to suffocate
In two, you regret then cry
In one, your cries stopped
It’s Over is a run of 5 custom Kidrobot Dunny.
BORN TO DIE
The question is never about WhatMr Kum Kum, July 2020
What time we wake up, What job we do,
What meal we take,
What things we buy
It’s all about Why
Why we wake up and do things
we have faith in, every single day
The What is for those who want to live
The Why is for the one who wants to feel alive
A resin run of 5.
Once upon a timeMr Kum Kum, July 2020
there was an idea
to make a perfect world
where every being
live in harmony
but one day
a Great White came
tore the idea into pieces
and from that day
the world live in reality ever after
A resin run of 5.
There’s no hope in this placeMr Kum Kum, July 2020
It’s a place for the beast
prey on the one who’s weak to see
Thirsty for gold but never struggle bold
Mad for glory but keeps the heart empty
There’s no hope in this city
Unless you have the tenacity
Like the beast
An original piece by Mr Kum Kum in resin. Run of 5.
