About CERTAINLY UNCERTAIN
Initially inspired by the artist’s heartbreak, Certainly Uncertain is a capsule collection created by Binbin Hong and curated by DDA. In its overarching breadth of works, this collection consists of 2 installations, 9 paintings and 1 multi-media interactive space. In lieu of the sweet and fancy resplendence that Binbin used to cooperate in her previous works, this exhibition embraces a violent rupture of fantasy.
In the language of art, Binbin Hong built a dialogue with the inner half about the nebulous prospect she shared with the boy of uncertainty. Unfortunately, this love story didn’t have a happy ending. “Painting itself is not a difficult task, but to decide whether it’s finished is certainly uncertain”, the artist asserted. The very mood during this journey coincided her experience as a painter. She was lost, confused and denied.

The making of this collection helped Binbin realize it was only important that she remained just Binbin Hong other than Binbin Hong according to anybody else. Works in this collection are almost unrecognizable to her early arts, but it is in this chaotic romance that she became fuller and much stronger. Everybody should find a little bit of themselves in this story.
About Binbin Hong
Following her enduring passion for fine art, Binbin Hong pursued her education at UAL and RCA. She is an unconfined female artist whose unconventional approach to art remained versatile. She can make an entrance at a party but can also be a wild painter covered in acrylics at work. Finding inspirations from her profound Chinese origins, Binbin’s flairs to interpret Chinese references and East Asia cultures have caught attentions from the western world.

7 paintings were finished at the different phases throughout her experience. In chronological order, these paintings put together a fragment of her history with the boy, yet each drawing delivers the mood of a particular moment and tells an individual story respectively.

In its modern manner, glitter swamp is a space made for social media. It invites guests to complete the art works while the multi-media devices enhanced in-person experience. The space is colourful, playful and beautiful thanks to the bursting sparkles sealed in the resins on the floor.

Echoing to “bloody hell”, Bloody Bell also nods to the French word Belle and the story of Bloody Mary. The artist denies the stereotypical depiction of girls being soft and tender by intertwining a horror narrative and victorious figure into one. The sculpture itself was actually the Goddess of Victory, and when installed in front of a mirror with her wings open Bloody Bell gives an image of Mary breaking out of the looking glass.
On the reflective surface, it says “don’t look”, suggesting that people always look into the mirror whenever possible. Somewhat sarcastic, the “don’t look” mirror also makes fun of a current phenomenon where people only come to gallery for social media images. The body standing on the rough cloth that was hardened by resin glows in luster, and the heart bleeds with glistening glitters. It is a piece of art of grunge chic.
