/ Experience the extremes of chronic and mental illness in this beautiful but confronting show by decentralised artist Auspicious Victory
XCHC, 376 Wilsons Road, Christchurch

A multi-sensory experience exploring the extremes of chronic and mental illness. Confronting, colourful and bold yet beautiful, Auspicious Victory’s art exists to provoke the comfortable and comfort those that struggle with the common world.

Hostile Body brings together various multimedia; sound, projections and installations, for a multi-sensory experience, all-encompassing, directing visitors to a wider contemplation of life and its outcomes through the experience of a virtual artist with chronic illness.

Drawing on a broad range of digital art and collaboration with different types of art, (music, live performances, large screens, traditional painting and digital art). The art comes from very private pain and art is not afraid to talk about that. It demonstrates experiences of chronic and mental illness to the point of.

Auspicious Victory comes from Amarapura “The house of the immortals” and preaches simulation theory as fact. Part designer, marketer, performance artist, techno prophet, visual artist, and activist all in one. Auspicious Victory’s true identity is irrelevant as they will tell you. The artist will eventually be “guided” by a collective of individuals who wish to support their cause, this format is a DAO, a Decentralised Autonomous Organisation, breaking new ground, with the crypto world coming together with the art world to create the first decentralised artist.

They combine traditional and digital printmaking technologies, graphic design’s principles of colour theory, negative space, composition and typography, with digital painting, artificial intelligence, Liquid AI, machine learning and generative art.

Irreverent, uncompromising and bold, their art exists to provoke the comfortable and comfort those that struggle with the common world. Their experience of mental and chronic illness influences how they view time and the legacy they want to leave behind.

Learning by doing, challenging through questions, irreverent on demand: when the mask is on, nothing is off limits.

All works are one of one.
