'Postcapitalism Kidnapping' is a collaborative exhibition by upcoming French artists Frank Perrin and ZEVS, their first ever showing in Asia. Perrin's dramatic yet detailed photographs have not only captured the visual spectacles of various fashion catwalk shows, nor do they simply pronounce and accentuate the relationship between man and architectural space, they in truth subtly mirror and reflect on the notion of 'buying' into a fantasy world that is built by the believe system of consumerism. The infamous act of 'kidnapping' and manipulating symbolic elements from established brand names has been the core of ZEVS's creative efforts. Although they can undoubtedly be seen as an examination of our materialistic society, the strong presence of our deeply rooted association with these logos and the captivating and intriguing visual quality can hardly be ignored. Together they post an interesting question of our understanding and interaction with 'consumerism' through their stunning creations.
