‘Over the Influence’ is presenting Supreme méme, an exhibition of new and selected works by French street artist, Auguirre Shwarz, aka Zevs (pronounced Zeus). One of the most prominent figures of the contemporary street art scene, Zevs is best known for his signature “liquidation” technique– deforming and disfiguring iconic and highly-recognisable logos to question the power of brands and corporations.
This exhibition is Shwarz’s first in Hong Kong after his 2009 arrest in the city for painting a liquidated Chanel logo on the side of the Giorgio Armani flagship store in Central in an effort to reflect a “battle of the brands”. ‘Over the Influence’ will feature a selection of original paintings and sculptures that explore and criticise the recent collaboration between Louis Vuitton and Supreme and the compulsive desire of consumers to obtain cult products.
When: Tuesday, 6 July – Saturday, 4 August; Tuesday to Saturday 11am – 7pm
Where: Over the Influence, 1/F, 159-163 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
How much: Free admission.
