Pyrce Luk: MAKE IT TILL YOU FAIL IT!

3 April - 29 April

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Yrellag Gallery is honoured to present Pyrce Luk’s solo exhibition “MAKE IT TILL YOU FAIL IT!”, comprising a collection of new works including poster prints, mix-media sculptures, and kinetic installation for turning Yrellag Gallery into a Blind Box Shop of “Failed-Eggs”.

“Failing is a form of resistance, with a liberating force.”

The “Failed-Eggs” project was hatched from an egg the artist accidentally misboiled, from which a mesmerizing “egg white flower” oozed out. Searching online for existing communities that appreciate such beauty, the artist was astonished to find none, despite billions of eggs being consumed daily worldwide. All she could find was advice on avoiding this “failure”.

What is often too hastily labelled “failure” from a utilitarian and overly simplistic binary view, might actually signify autonomy or the beginning of a revolution. Transcending their physicality, these “Failed- Eggs” manifest possibilities and alternative ways of being. From this perspective, “failure” is a form of success — Successfully defying societal and internalized external expectations.

This Blind Box Shop celebrates endeavours to fail the “what should be” and embraces the “what could be”. On display is a part of “Failed-Eggs” created since 2021, each of them has violated at least one guideline for boiling a “perfect egg”.
