To celebrate the opening of Keep Your Timber Limber (Works on Paper), artist Cary Kwok has created a special limited edition print.
Cary Kwok (born 1975 in Hong Kong) is known for his exquisite works depicting men ejaculating, which are both funny and unsettling. Using ballpoint pen, a medium associated with schoolchildren's fan drawings of pop stars, he portrays a number of men with a visible and obvious set of beliefs or ethnic origin at a moment of climax. Although these men are subtly characterised by clothing or race, their moment of ejaculation unites them in a physiological experience. During this moment of vulnerability each character lives outside of himself - his traits, beliefs and origin.
Kwok's edition for the ICA, Pop in the Eye, is a very intimate look at one of the world's most loved characters and takes the audience through a porthole into his private life of needs and desires.
