Polluta, Floating Artist Colony in the Sky Michelle Kuen Suet Fung’s newest solo exhibition at Pro Arts, Polluta, Floating Artist Colony in the Sky, imagines a futuristic dystopian society for her native Hong Kong. This community lives in the fictional Contradictoria, a country that has solved its pollution problem by turning industrial waste into building bricks. These bricks are then used to build Polluta, a lush live-work colony floating in the sky for artists. Fung attempts to make sense of modern Chinese history through Polluta, incorporating inspiration from fairy tales, children’s picture books, 15th-century European etching, traditional Chinese painting, and the Japanese Otaku subculture of obsessive fandom. The Polluta project seems like an ecotopia on the surface, but is underlined by a dark current of dystopia with the inclusion of Chinese propaganda posters and paintings.
