VIBRANCE – Time Travel with The Mollusc Dimension

About

Strangely emboldened by the popularity of Korean pop in the UK, an eclectic, UK-born, Chinese, queer, trans-masculine artist known as The Mollusc Dimension wants visibility. Dodging the sino-racist ramblings of white colonial ghosts, he keeps falling out of his closets. Only now, he’s finally ready to tell you about his 2019 debut album, “Welcome to The Mollusc Dimension”, an enigmatically humorous coding of QTPOC sadness and rage in absurdity and lyricism.

In a deeply personal and unusual two-part journey, The Mollusc Dimension will introduce selected album tracks and discuss his creative process with Urie Jo (aka Shaven Raven Designs), who recorded the three off-beat comedy-style interludes and also designed the fantastical album artwork for it.

In the second half of the event, The Mollusc Dimension is excited to share about his recent work and anticipated milestones: a debut solo show (or should that be retrospective??) and an anthology, “The Book of The Mollusc Dimension. He will attempt to sit comfortably (despite his famous aching bisexual joints) while offering glimpses of vibrance – art, poetry, music and tentacular surprises.
