ART BASEL HONG KONG
WYN-LYN TAN
23 - 25 MAR 2017
BOOTH 3D43



The new painting installations continue Tan's engagement with the materiality of painting, and its dynamics into spatial and sculptural forms.

Five pieces of shaped curvilinear paintings on wood will be mounted across the walls, and composed into a multi-layered landscape. In working with wood, the artist also discovers a new form of physical materiality. The wood, its texture and grain, reveals a fresh dialogue between artist and medium - the material is not simply a support, but rather, a sign of the process of mark-making.

A second installation radically utilises the exhibition space with its long, scroll-like panoramic presentation of ten paintings, hung in a seemingly endless row. The resulting meditative vista, which requires the viewer to journey with the paintings, alludes to the Chinese hand-scroll paintings that unfurled section by section.

HOW LONELINESS GOES
NGUAN
28 FEB - 12 APR 2017
FOST GALLERY



How Loneliness Goes is about those of us who abide in the city. The photographs in the series employ Singapore’s distinct vernacular architecture as both scenery and supporting cast for a lyrical and ambivalent portrayal of urban isolation. Whether they are depicted as being on their own or in the middle of a teeming crowd, the protagonists in the images appear detached and bereft - a part of the living, yet apart from it.

The work functions as an allegory for the impossibility of connection in modern life. The pictures also affirm the tenuous margins that divide maturity or worldliness from a sort of brokenness, and melancholy from a kind of peace.

How Loneliness Goes was first presented as a highlight of the 2015 M1 Singapore Fringe Festival. It returns for a special engagement at FOST Gallery, where several new images will be on show.

The Library of Unread Books develops from Chong’s deep-seated longing for books. It is a members-only reference library made up of donated books that are unread by their previous owners. By receiving and revealing that which people choose not to read, the Library is the result of a collective gesture and traces the perimeters of unwanted knowledge. Managed in collaboration with chief librarian Renée Staal, The Library of Unread Books 2 is now located at CCA's main exhibition building.

RODNEY SMITH (1947-2016)


It is with great sadness that we announce Rodney Smith's passing in New York on 05 December 2016. Smith was world renowned for his whimsical black-and-white photographs of elegantly dressed subjects, in idyllic, surrealistic environments. A testament of his time, his work was regularly published in Time, Fortune and The New York Times Magazine and was an inspiration to his fellow photographers.

SOLID PRAYERS
CHUN KAI QUN
10 JAN - 19 FEB 2017
FOST GALLERY


Prayers are predicated on desires, dreams, hopes, and may take the form of words and deeds. For Chun Kai Qun, his art objects are imbibed by the desire to remake his world. He believes that human beings have always projected their identities onto objects, thereby creating a permanent essence of substance and dwelling within a material thing.

Moreover, the enduring materiality of objects can sometimes outlive the creator and is able to procure a sense of existence beyond the mortality of the physical body. Chun, the quintessential object maker, thus transforms a spiritual invocation into a solid form, and possibly extending his prayers well into the afterlife.

As part of the NUS Arts Festival 2016, the NUS Museum will be featuring Five Trees Make A Forest by Donna ONG. The exhibition will present the history of image-making towards the 'tropics' in Singapore through an interpretative synthesis of scientific journals, travelogues and illustrations composed in colonial times.

The installation is a landscape that would define the imaginary illustrations of the tropics and would present an "alternative" colonial site prompted by 18th and 19th century books and manuscripts, excerpts from diaries written in colonial Singapore among others.

The exhibition investigates spaces between text and images, producing new ways of relating the two through new works commissioned specifically by Rockbund Art Museum.

Curated by Li Qi, the exhibition can be interpreted as a fiction which may never be put into words. A fiction that is absurd and bizarre, one that is equipped with a sardonic, black humour, where different situations find themselves misplaced in the realm between reality and fantasy. Read more about this exhibition here.
