painted lines, covered plains

18  September to 3 October

painted lines, covered plains is a duo show by Sufian Samsiyar and Victoria Tan. Using various vestiges of construction sites, showrooms and locales within Singapore, the works become manifestations of these transitions, temporal ruins and desires. A combination of photographic works and site-specific installation, painted lines, covered plains proposes detached views of the constant impermanent landscape of Singapore.

CYTTDBM&CF?

17 July to 7 August 2021 

Maybe; if the Milo was really diluted, like the way my mum used to make it in the mornings before school, and I had to wait till the last minute to chug it so it would be cool enough. I’m not sure if it’d be easier or harder to differentiate if it was a latte, like the kind I would have with my friend after classes at school. But if it was like the 3 cups of black kopi o kosong that my grandpa would have everyday while he peered at his newspaper through the glasses on the bridge of his nose, I think I would know. I think I could tell the difference. 

6 artists contend with what it means to be intimate, with oneself, with each other, and the world around them. Whether through the quickest of glances or intensive introspection, those moments of connection lie waiting to be discovered, and more than that, appreciated.

Splinter

10 April to 30 April 2021 

The body and city are entangled and intertwined, each holding influence and power over the other. Cities shape their lines and function around the bodies that inhabit them. The body, in turn, adapts itself and carves the continuous transformation of a city. In the process of mutual growth, still, there are bodies that disrupt the organized planning of a city. In the eyes of the state, these splintering are foreign objects that must be tamed, if not eradicated.

 

Splinter showcases 11 artists exploring the disruption of the established practices and behaviours of society. In affirming their own presence, these splinters become grafts that can restore the body and revitalize the city. They expand the possibilities of the city beyond the limits of what is known and recognised. In Splinter, we see how the undesirable nurtures our bodies and allow us to reimagine what more life in a city can become.

Across a Small Distance

9  September to 11 September

𝘈𝘤𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘴 𝘢 𝘚𝘮𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘋𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 is a work-in-progress by Chew Shaw En & Jevon Chandra about the nature of landing, receiving and transmission. Through a sequence of movements and activities, the work explores the textures of communication in small settings: the things too near to touch, misunderstandings too slight to notice, tiny truths too inconvenient to say.

Supported by Feelers and hosted by starch, the piece’s first showing is presented as a work-in-progress, followed by a short discussion after.

Public Dreams, Private Myths

6 March to 30 March 2021 

Taking cues from a quote by Joseph Campbell, "Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths”, Public Dreams, Private Myths is a group show by Cheong Yew Mun, Kar-men Cheng and Paul Hurley.

As recent graduates of the same MA Fine Arts programme at LASALLE College of the Arts, the three developed their practices closely with one another. In this presentation, they reflect on their intimate knowledge of each others’ work and begin a conversation that bleeds through their respective areas of inquiry, forming new meanings within familiar ideas.
