Monster Chetwynd @ De Pont
‘Toxic Pillows’ is the first extensive solo exhibition of British artist Monster Chetwynd (formerly know as Marvin Gaye Chetwynd and Spartacus Chetwynd) in the Netherlands.
CHETWYND: ‘I would say I will work to my last breath to urge the human race to enjoy company, warmth and humor. It is a radical, uplifting political action to prioritize humor. I am anti-stuffiness, anti-pretentiousness. I do not wish to intimidate. I aim to include. I make performances and art that lift morale: a natural tonic, a portal to buoyancy and human bonding, unstoppable surges of courage and bravado, that seem irresponsible in the face of the current reality, but also are a useful ingredient if we are to be energised to program change.’
Toxic Pillows by Monster Chetwynd on view until March 15 @ De Pont museum in Tilburg.
