Abstract (English)

"Ironically or not, we live in a society where we have the luxury to discuss luxury. As artists and cultural workers, we have the luxury to describe art and artmaking as essential. As political creatures, we live in a society that has the luxury to debate that notion and the luxury to make a decision one way or the other.

We have the luxury to ponder our faults and problems; the luxury to flog ourselves in public and look all the better for it.

In this age of abundance, guilt is redundant.

The artists in this exhibition use rich, sensual media to make frivolous, self-indulgent objects. Their topics of meditation are confined to sex, food, toys and games, fashion, grooming, artmaking. Without a hint of irony, these are their necessary activities." -- Cinde Baker, page 1.
