Terrorism to some people considered as a holy act. Wrapped in religious dogmas, this act of terrorism is becoming complicated as it sometimes interwoven with political agendas.
The socio-political dynamic in this era of globalization sharpens the conflict of any interest based on different ideological view, the gaps between rich and poor, conservative economic versus so called neo-liberalism, and also what is stated by scholars as clash of civilizations.
Armored by the possibilities of advance technology on communications, information, and weaponry, all the idea even on single living individual is ready to be operated in combative action. All radical actions find its way to act. In this turmoil and delicate atmosphere we now live in.
To die for religion consider holy and can purify ones and or collective sins and for believers in this action they declare war against impurities or any bad influences outside of their religion dogmas. History has its darkest ages that religion became too dogmatic and then corrupted as it was twisted by some of the leaders. Religion is hijacked by the idea to homogenize the world, the universe, into one single belief that claims itself the righteous one.
On September 9, 1976, Mao Zedong died. Mao's image during the Cultural Revolution portrayed him as a larger-than-life figure who represented China's revolutionary progress. Mao's death symbolized the loss of the socialist foundation of China.
What started out of curiosity, soon became a hobby and now looks more like an addiction (can no longer see any movie without thinking: “What does the minimal movie poster of this film look like?”). Resulted in a true minimal movie poster gallery.
The complete gallery is best described by a title in particular: The Good, The bad and The ugly. For it is certainly not filled with only the best or most beautiful movie titles ever made. Some of the featured titles represent really bad movies or titles of films that are downright ugly. But one thing they do have in common: all are memorable.
The gallery is still growing. With still the same premise, asking myself the final question for each movie: “Who or what is the “real” star?”
Look for the complete gallery on www.chungkong.nl. Have fun (I did making them). Feel free to comment…

Garden Fresh series investigates the shifting boundaries between humans and animals in today’s environment and the complex relationship between art and nature. It is like a fable about a journey undertaken by the animals when they venture into our daily lives. The animals are confronted by a new reality that is in conﬂict with their natural habits and habitats.
At the same time, when we see these ‘zoo-trapped’ animals in supermarkets, their most outstanding characteristics are isolated as their ‘only’ characteristics. The animals are stripped of their own identities and are used as empty vessels to be ﬁlled with the human drama of parody, satire and allegory. We cannot help but see animals from a human vantage point, and therefore in some sense all the works in the present exhibition are actually about us.
Here is a lovely necklace I made for my jewelry show I had on February 11th. All vintage findings. Most of these pieces remain for sale at a local shop. If you are interested in buying a particular piece, let me know and I can check on the availability of it!
