Bridging the mechanical with the organic, the activated with the inert, and systems with chance, syn- presents the prize-winning works for academic excellence in research and practice of LASALLE Alumni Danial Shafiq (BA) and Victoria Hertel (MA). Both artists explore new materialities through a shared interest in the vitality of objects encountered in space. Victoria has been invested in the de- and refamiliarization of materials as functions of disruption to our routinized perception of objects, addressing ideas of unsettlement as perspective shifting happenstance. Danial delves into the interaction between humans and objects by studying their form and function, and displacing technology as a means for improvisation and accentuation of the inconspicuous in this network. Together, their works respond to the site and architecture of the gallery in ways that are both sensorial and interconnected.
An initiative by Angie Chan and Nick Davies, the Chan-Davies Art Prize was launched exclusively for all final year students of LASALLE’s BA(Hons) Fine Arts Programme. In 2016, the prize expanded to include MA Fine Arts students. The prize aims to encourage artists in their early career with financial support and exposure.

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.
