Over the Influence is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of Mark Nixon in Hong Kong, MuchLoved. The selection of 14 photographs from the series includes the famed teddy from the TV show “Mr Bean” along with a stuffed bear that belonged to a close friend of the musician Bono. Each photograph is accompanied by a descriptive paragraph sharing the story of the stuffed animal and their owner.

When everything was unknown, they were there.

Where anything could happen, they were there.

These repositories of hugs, of fears, of hopes, of tears, of snots and smears.

Alone at night, they were the comforters, when monsters lurked in darkened corners, when raised voices muffled through floors and walls.

These silent witnesses, these constant companions, defenders of innocence.

Their touch, yes, but their smell, that instantly calming, all embalming musk, unique to each, soothing and smoothing the journey from consciousness to un, from purity to im, from infancy to adult-terre.

Sworn to secrecy, unconditionally there, unjudgemental fair and almost always a bear.

– Mark Nixon
