ARTWORK INFORMATION
Foraged fidgets, 2022.
Silicone, resin and stainless steel.

Caress your fingers between its thorns… Get cosy with a durian in Weixin Quek Chong’s Foraged Fidgets. Its thorny-rind evolved little spikes with spaces for your touch, bait your flesh through crack and crevices and poke back as if its spikes are curious limbs. Somewhere between an adult fidget toy to a new age gua sha or wrist rest, get reacquainted with the king of fruits. The object can be used in multiple ways from massaging specific pressure points to a fidget toy during boring meetings... Take your cue from its inviting spikes for an object you won’t resist.





















ABOUT THE ARTIST

Weixin Quek Chong works as an artist, exploring nonverbal sensorialities as ways of speaking. Her practice is inspired by translations and transformations, and playing with constructed binaries. She also explores the dialectics of materials and sensations, often dealing with the stylisation of natural elements, digital and organic memory systems and a fascination with surfaces, screens and printed matter. She often translates an idea visually across different materials, letting the images manifest themselves in a variety of forms and textures, seeking to embody themselves in immersive, multi sensorial environments.
