Chan + Hori Contemporary: Sick Scents

I recently had the honour of getting in touch with Bradley Foisset, an artist with whom I had met a few times at work. Bradley had just started working at Chan + Hori Contemporary and extended an invite for me to visit their exciting lineup of exhibits. I gladly welcomed the opportunity to take my camera out for a spin – after all, who could say no to when presented with a chance for a private tour?

But first, Ottie and I visited the dual opening of Mojoko‘s Sick Scents and Gerald Leow‘s I Am Time Grown Old To Destroy The World. Naturally, I gravitated towards the colourful use of collage and olfactory in Sick Scents, which was a collaboration with Terry Jacobson to create a series of seven fragrances inspired by Asia.

A week later I took up Bradley’s offer to visit the gallery before it opened. It had been a few months since I last took outfit photos, so it came as a reprieve from the busy-ness in life recently:

Right: I also liked the colourful shadows in this particular piece.

I got to appreciate the unique shapes of the bottles in this new context as a result.

I think if I ever got myself some permanent ink it’d have to be something meta like this to keep me amused for the rest of my life.
