ARTIST : MR Deng F.U. Queen VENUE : Tentacles Art space, 2198/10-11 Soi Nar - athiwas 22, Chong Nonsi, Yan Nawa, Bangkok 10120 PERIOD : July - Sept 2018 / Wed to Sun 12 - 6 PM DEE ELITE probes self-reproduction through cosplay fantasy as survival mechanism in the history of consciousness and social imaginary of class, power and gender. On a commonsensical level, DEE ELITE proposes that ‘anyone can’, just as ‘nobody should’. It is premised on the critical understanding that he - reditary habit and mimicry end when alterity begins. MR Deng F.U. Queen (1965), from the ousted royal family of Kazahkstan that escaped from the border of China, was raised in Singapore’s Chinatown and studied at local top elite schools, enrolling in the pioneering Gifted Program and Theatre Studies Program, eventually giving up Plastic Surgery in Mid - dlesex College in London for Plastic Arts at Royale College of Art (RCA), Bangkok. His artistic praxis dwells on correcting public confusion over the terms ‘elite’ and elitist’.
