I Planned Today as Your Bad Day? — Eugene Lun Yue Chi's solo exhibition
“I’ve said that they are all being twisted around your finger.”
Accidents are always unpredictable. When an accident happens, the ones who accept their fate are usually blessed and can get away safely; the ones who pray for a silver lining are usually jinxed and end up getting disappointed.
We are all fortune's fools, and we never have a sure way to predict or change our fate, so why don't we just go with the flow and accept what it throws at us, no matter if we want them.
Eugene's artworks are inspired by daily life accidents and news. He changed part of the news occurrences to bring out the possibilities of more unexpected developments. He creates a series of brightly coloured screen prints infused with Augmented Reality. Augmented Reality is used in the artworks to twist the audience's expectation of the characters in his drawings. In order to show the audience the wonder of Fate and the inabilities of the human being.
✧ About Eugene Lun Yue Chi
Eugene graduated from Hong Kong Baptist University, Academy of Visual Arts in 2021. His illustrations and prints are inspired by the trivial things that he encountered in daily life. He wishes to escape from the dull reality with the audiences through creating humorous artworks. He believes everything in the world is destined, and we don’t have control over our fate. Going with the flow is the way to survive. After graduation, he continues to explore the use of the latest technology and its integration with printmaking, in order to provide a more comprehensive representation to the static graphics. He previously participated in exhibitions including “HK Foreword 2021” (10 Chancery Lane Gallery, 2021), “AVA Print Club” (HKBU AVA Gallery, 2021) and “BOOKED:2021” (Tai Kwun, 2021).
