The birth of The Dung
The birth of The Dung Beetle Project was marked by a moment – the realization that art making process is futile, parallel to the absurd labour of Sisyphus who infinitely pushes a boulder uphill to only watch it roll back down again. In the believe that the meaninglessness of art constitutes our freedom, The Dung Beetle Project exhibition is comprised of dialogues on the worth of our absurdly free existence, in the same way as how our art-making process poses questions against its own purpose and value. This exhibition is thus a platform for each of us to doubt against the world’s indifference in multiple aspects of the everyday; a showcase of our attempts to answer it all.
In Albert Camus’ Myth of Sisyphus, it is declared that “The Struggle itself towards the height is enough to fill a man’s heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.”
The Dung Beetle might be rolling shit, but it is probably happy doing so.
