OOPS HOPPER Mini-Exhibition

Recurring event see all

February 6, 2021 @ 10:00 am 10:00 pm

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset


“OOPS HOPPER” is an art project inspired by the painting “A Cure for Madness” by Hieronymus Bosch. In this painting, a barber wearing a hopper-shaped hat pretends to use craniotomy to take a stone symbolizing madness and stupidity out of people’s brain to cure their stupidity. The pointed hat on the barber’s head is jokingly called “the hopper of wisdom”, while the surrealist phenomenon presented by this hat is exactly what “OOPS HOPPER” advocates, which is to examine history and civilization from another perspective, and convey the contemporary meaning of rationality and madness in a fun tone.

智慧的漏斗 微个展
“OOPS HOPPER 智慧的漏斗”是一项艺术计划,受耶罗尼米斯·博斯的画作《治疗疯癫》所启发:一位头戴漏斗形尖帽的理发师,假装通过开颅手术把一颗象征疯癫和愚蠢的石子从人们脑中取出,以此来治疗愚蠢。理发师头上的尖帽则被戏称为“智慧的漏斗”。而这顶帽子所呈现的超现实主义现象正是“OOPS HOPPER”的主张:从另一种视角审视历史与文明,以趣味的语言载体对理性与疯癫作出属于当下时代的表达。
