Art Against AIDS 1999

Consolation Prize
Peach Sharing

The two male figures are totally involved in their private zone which is framed by a circle (symbolising unity). Between them lies a peach (tao). The fruit and tree are popular motifs in Chinese art, which is believed to bring happiness to newlyweds.The screen is a bar that prevents intrusions. On the other hand, the bar and the circle can be seen to represent a condom. AIDS is with us and while wrongly categorised as a gay disease, the fact remains that anal intercourse is a high-risk activity. Precaution and safer sex practice are a must!

Let's recall. As kids, what were inside our school bags on our way to school for drawing classes? Fast forward to the present. Given some graphite, six artists explore, interpret and re-discover the medium in their own ways.

Presented by KYTV (Kill Your Television) a local art collective formed in early 2002, active and known for its multi-disciplinary art projects. Project Graphite is its first visual art exhibition.
