Twenty twenty two
To celebrate its new look, Manchester music and art space Twenty twenty two, decided to host an exhibition of Ping pong themed design, art and illustration.
Lazerian was invited to create something innovative, in its usual sculptural style as long as it related to the theme of ping pong.
As well as reflecting and symbolising Ping pong, the sculptures also had to reflect the world we currently live in
The exhibition aim was to showcase pieces from handpicked creatives to show Ping pong related paraphernalia being used in everyday life.
The art of ping pong
Introducing a dedicated Ping Pong room was another reason to celebrate. In addition, Twenty Twenty Two will bolster its art Exhibitions, with the main room being dedicated to established artists with exhibition ‘Pong Ping’ kicking things off. The Ping Ping room will also have a wall dedicated to up and coming artists and will again rotate on a monthly basis.
The Art of Ping Pong celebrates the popularity and subculture of ping pong by colliding it with all the colour and fun of art.
Everyone wants to win and hammer the person at the game and also the destruction that one does to the world without much thought
Representing the addictive nature of ping pong and in addition how much people rely on drugs for health and social situations.
Symbolising the intensity of a game of ping pong from spectators. It also represents the fact that we are always being watched by cctv cameras from somewhere without us even knowing.
The hand symbolises the human interaction with the game and the fact we are all loosing sight to the handcraft of items with moving into a digital age
Representing the social side to the sport. It was also the first 3D computer graphic item which brings us into today’s 3D digital computer age.
