What: With artist Perry Chen’s new group of works titled ‘Perpetual Novelty’, Nature Morte is pleased to announce an online viewing room. The viewing room is an avenue for the gallery to showcase new works being made by artists. Born in New York City in 1976, Chen is an artist and the founder of Kickstarter. He approaches his work with an openness to form and context, having used art to explore technology and technology to help democratize the funding of creative work. For Chen the most pertinent question is: “How do we negotiate a world of growing complexity and uncertainty?” He prefers to look at larger patterns and forces rather than focussing on specific technological changes.
