purikura paradise, 2016

Paper replicas of luxury goods and necessities are traditionally burned as offerings for those in the Chinese afterlife, a blend of paradis and hell in which money still functions. I wore a set of paper offerings, making the images into over-decorated sticker form after the style of Neoprints/ Purikura (photo-sticker booths that became a craze in Southeast Asia since the 90s). An absurd reality provides an often comic perspective on the concepts of pleasure and appeasement.
