FOST GALLERY


FOST Gallery is pleased to present The Key to this Mystery is to Rephrase the Question Slightly by CHUN Kai Feng. The exhibition alludes to the perspective that things assume equal ontological significance as their human counterparts. Based on anonymous fixtures of generic urban interiors such as air diffusers and escalators, Chun's installation of 11 works explore ideaas of abstraction and materiality alongside our relationship with things and the environment.

The Key to this Mystery is to Rephrase the Question Slightly opens on Friday, 11 March 2016. In conjunction with the exhibition, an Artist's Talk will be held at 2pm on Saturday, 9 April, together with artist, curator and writer TAN Guo-Liang.

FIVE TREES MAKE A FOREST
DONNA ONG
11 MARCH - AUGUST 2016
ARCHAEOLOGY LIBRARY
NUS MUSEUM


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. Find out more about this exhibition in the Festival Guide here.
Heman CHONG, One Thousand And One Nights, 2016, Large scale light box installation, Dimensions variable

IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS
HEMAN CHONG
23 JANUARY - 3 MAY 2016
ROCKBUND ART MUSEUM (RAM)

SHANGHAI, CHINA



Ifs, Ands, or Buts is the first exhibition presented by RAM in 2016 and the first museum solo exhibition in Mainland China for Singaporean artist Heman CHONG. 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.
