SUNNY SIDE UP

As the NeeNee Collective comes together again this edition of DDW…

they do so “Sunnyside Up”. In a multi-genre showcase, they reflect on their role as young, avant-garde Asian artists at a transcultural limit (both sides of which are sunny).

Cultural Mutation
The artists at NeeNee Collective manifest their creativity in a foreign setting, where it mutates day by day through their tireless effort. They each reveal and nurture the universes connected with their own personal narratives, which speak of their existence mode, and do not seek to be aesthetic or functional.

The exhibition evokes a feeling that is equal parts nurturing, quotidian, absurd—a sort of frustrated but fertile cycle in these scrambled times. Each of their practices transplants and nurtures a sort of distorted assemblage made from transcultural ingredients: a sort of cell culture, a metamorphosis of visual languages.

Migrating Methodologies
Sunny-side Up does not have one form. Instead, it showcases the many instruments of the NeeNee collective which shares an approach to materiality, shape, and storytelling through a multidisciplinary methodology in which migrations and implants are key.

Their projects crawl at the lining of (familiarity): the traces of “control of aesthetic concealment,” which they have inherited from the mainstream Asian culture, have transmuted. They took shape and developed into something new that is properly their own.

About NeeNee
As a group of young, avant-garde Asian artists, NeeNee Collective reflects on their role as creative practitioners at the transcultural limit. Their work is at the intersection of form and meaning and infused with their own experiences as they move across an entangled cultural landscape.

It is currently conformed by [Che Go Eun, Erika Shiba, Dae Uk Kim, Sho Ota, Yoon shun, Joeoung hoon shin, Soyon Kim, Kurina Sohn]. They contemplate the new foreground of everyday life.
