The Backstory: “No One Can Save Us” was derived from the larger-than-life Melting Superhero which was placed in front of the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) during the 2012 Future Proof exhibition. The massive figure in blue tights and a red codpiece was hard to miss and even more striking for its lack of torso and head. At first glance it was comical – this gaudy, brawny mess dripping and dissolving like a giant candle. But it didn’t take long before the message was clear – No One Can Save Us. The artwork sums up how even our superheroes can’t prevent us from continuing to heat up the planet and destroy our own existence. The sculpture has recently relocated to the prestigious Parc De Villette in Paris for its 2016 Summer Show.
Arty-Fact: “I’m interested in creating art that is accessible. I like that a person on a bus could ride past my sculptures or stand in front of my artwork and understand what I’m trying to say. They know the conventions and stereotypes of the character. I can then use that knowledge to subvert and call attention to a subject.” – Mojoko.
