He’s been referred to as the “new Warhol” or a “flashy Asian performance diva.” He likes to describe himself as a mix between a “hairless Albino wolf and a pink hare with a horn” or the “Naomi Campbell of the art world.” With his sensational performances, objects, and installations, Terence Koh (*1980 inBeijing) has within only a few years succeeded in becoming a well-respected Gesamtkunstwerk. No other artist has done so well at transferring influences from Postminimalism and seventies’ Body Art into his own cosmos, where decadence and deliberate excess reign. Life and death, beauty and decay, sexuality and gender, and cultural and personal identity are the themes of Koh’s Minimalist yet Baroque works, most of which are captured in black or white.
This comprehensive monograph is the first to offer an overview of the “asianpunkboy’s” artistic career, including his most recent installations, produced for the MUSAC in Spain.
