We Are All Equal (2015)
supermarket products
dimension variables



I randomly picked an item in the supermarket in Shatin, which was a box of curry and I bought everything in that supermarket which shared the same height with it.

// Mak tried to define marketing strategies with an alterative shopping habit by making Size as the only rule of consumption. Through rearranging goods of indifferent height, our gaze is shifted from the content on the packages to the beauty of form. The seducer of everyday consumption is defeated, but a successive enemy is found. Contemporary art is our new enemy. It entraps us into the new consumption. When art affirms its value with its interplay with vanity, its worth is set in concrete under the monetized system and the globalized market. The rendering to shallow pompousness is the reality that we witness. //
