“a room of one’s own” (and then it got legs)

13 January - 8 February

anGie seah

Curated by Bruce Quek


“a room of one’s own” (and then it got legs) is anGie seah’s first solo exhibition in 7 years. Through social interventions, sculptures, videos, drawings and performance, anGie addresses society’s endemic crisis of empathy, and acts as commentary on the people and issues rendered invisible in society: How is it that, having an incredible capacity for empathy, humanity has built societies characterised by its very lack? The exhibition examines empathy through the notion of well-being, and how we deal with falling short of being well. This body of work explores wellness through pain and how we acknowledge, live with, adapt to, and overcome pain and physical incapacity. It is a quest to shape pain, to reinvent the everyday, to find awe and wonderment, and to be kind to ourselves and those around us.




Ang Song-Ming


Untitled gathers the bulk of Song-Ming Ang’s work since the pandemic, bringing together his creative output in various media, from art to music and writing. In the years after representing Singapore at the 58th Venice Biennale (2019), Ang immersed himself in studying modular synthesis and returned to making experimental music in earnest while exploring other avenues of art-making. At Untitled, Ang will launch Waves and Currents, a box set of material spanning his audio improvisations, drawings and videos inspired by electronic music, and a series of text-based works defined by their stark, repetitive insistence.

I Must, Be in A Good Place

3 - 17 June

Vanoha Chiam, Joshua Kon


I Must, Be in A Good Place Now features two bodies of works unpacking themes of vulnerability, intimacy and identity. Joshua Kon and Vanorha Chiam revisit concepts and explorations surrounding the body to uncover renewed understandings their practice and sense of self. 

Rarely Touched Often Held is an honest documentation of intimacy and self-pleasure. Kon is joined by his coterie on a personal and platonic journey to negotiate their sexual curiosity. Through snapshots and staged photographs, Kon pens an almost self-indulgent love letter to their friendships and self-discovery since boyhood.  

Last Night I Dreamt I Was Clean Again is an attempt to come to terms withevents of the artist’s past that shaped her own view of her body. The work explores the relationship that the artist has with her body, both its physical and emotional realms. The work displays a powerful and moving exploration of the human experience while offering a glimpse into the artist's journey of healing and self-acceptance.

The Kwek Leng Joo Prize of Excellence in Photography was initiated in 2009 by the late Mr Kwek Leng Joo. The award was established to recognise photographic excellence among students at Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design and Media. Every year, two outstanding graduates are selected by a panel based on their portfolio, proposal, and potential. Each graduate is awarded a sum of S$25,000 to support and kickstart their artistic career. I Must, Be in A Good Place Now is the 13th edition of the annual recipients showcase to celebrate the award and the milestone for the artists.

Elden Zachary


soltu is Elden Zachery’s debut show seeking to understand and grasp the idea of being free (‘soltu’, in Kristang). Shaped by cowboy bravado, wandering nomads and the romance of Kristang folklore, this body of work features the wielding strengths of Elden’s artistic universe and storytelling. A vivid fashion and art experience where Elden’s dabblings in movement, writing and sound are married to the fashion work that they have been trained in. Stories told are funnelled through narrative displays of passion through weekly Saturday shows — litterfall; mangrove of echoes; hadal birds; seabed nomad thanks you for your company — with guest performers aiding in breathing life into the space.

Presented by Bulanujung and Starch, and curated by Jeremy Sharma, Nighthawks is an exhibition straddling the notion of expanded cinema: or an event unfolding through fiction, atmosphere and space. It features an ensemble of artists whose diverse practices range from video and installation to performance and drawing. 


Night skies: video art screening

5 - 28 January

Curated by Hidden Space (HK)

Artists: Yuen Nga Chi, Jess Lau Ching Wa, Hou Lam Tsui

Night Skies is a screening of three Hong Kong artists’ video works selected by Hidden Space.
Between them, these videos explore areas of personal concern and wider historical issues, amid both the pressure of societal structures and the vastness of the universe, while still finding an uplifting sensory beauty along the way.

In “Mui,” Yuen Nga Chi recounts moments of anxiety, and in the cathartic immolation of a taxidermied deer, finally releases the remains of the once-living creature into the earth and the night sky.

For her video poem “Sparkling Fountain,” Jess Lau Ching Wa uses stop-motion to record the unpicking of embroidered stars. As the labour of unknown seamstresses disintegrates into tiny flecks of thread, we see the universe expanding and disintegrating – all turning to dust, ourselves and our labours part of a cosmic whole.

Hou Lam Tsui’s video essay “Hard Tongue on Pillow” starts with the enigmatic condition ‘geographic tongue’ and goes on to question naming, mapping and boundaries as mechanisms of power. All the while a stuck-out tongue fills the frame and is subjected to endless streams of salt and sugar, exacerbating its metaphorical topography.


Second Hand Revelations

Zachary Chan, Nai Iyn Huii

𝙄_𝙎_𝙇_𝘼_𝙉_𝘿_𝙎 x starch is a collaborative effort between two independent platforms for artistic conversations. Situated between the start of an experiment and a fully realised work, the collaboration serves as a conduit for artists to develop their work in various orientations – positioning  𝙄_𝙎_𝙇_𝘼_𝙉_𝘿_𝙎 as a sandbox for conceptual inquiry that culminates in expanded presentations at starch. Over the next few months, this collaboration will play host to a series of contemporary explorations with a continued focus on community building and bridging of generations. 

𝙎𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙙 𝙃𝙚𝙖𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙍𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 is a presentation by Zachary Chan and Nai Iyn Huii looking at religiosity while interweaving personal narratives, historical anecdotes, religious texts, and environmental demonology. As a result of a residency with NTU Centre for Contemporary Art, the installation is an exploration of heterogenous manifestations of malevolent forces in doctrines. Using soft sculptures that emanate child-like naivety, the installation alludes to the porous divide between the everyday and the spiritual.
prompts, nudges and whispers.

𝘛𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘴 is the fourth chapter of the 𝘞𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘯𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘩𝘲𝘶𝘢𝘬𝘦𝘴 series. 𝘞𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘯𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘩𝘲𝘶𝘢𝘬𝘦𝘴 is an ongoing multi-chapter series that meditates on discomfort and disruption within the process of change.

For this chapter, 𝘛𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘴 will turn towards the phenomenon of discomfort and disruption within Singapore, presenting an installation that will draw from records of tremors documented in Singapore. These tremors are often a result of external occurrences of earthquakes, particularly from neighbouring regions like Sumatra, Indonesia but they could also result from other occurrences. Using collections on tremors documented in written articles, video footage and timelines over the past years, this installation responds to these tremors as something that is so recognisable yet so unfamiliar. In addition, this presentation will also include programmes such as artist talks, tours and a book launch. Details will be released over the next few weeks.

Susie Wong

Continuing the coconut tree as a thematic motif in Susie’s work, this work appropriates imageries from popular films, as well as from colonial paintings, some of which are now on display at the National Gallery Singapore.  Wherever the trees appear, they frame every scene as a witness to the place and the stories.

The coconut trees are depicted differently. They may be strange, odd, or even familiar, sometimes drawn from the artist’s memory, sometimes constructed following oral descriptions by those who had actually been there, seen them, or perhaps from old botanical texts. These cutouts are faithfully referenced from these paintings, many of which are entitled A View Of. This suggests “I am here, surveying this land that lies before me.” These are the documentary records of travelling painters/illustrators of past centuries — fresh forays into a new land — whether it is with a curious wonder at the strange Orient, or with an eye on possibilities of commerce, that is, to survey, to conquer, to possess. After all, “To travel is to possess the world.” (Burton Holmes, 1917, in Paramount-Burton Holmes Travel Pictures poster).

This 2-screen video presentation is version 3 of I miss you so much.  From clips taken from documentary films by Charles Chauvel in 1933 to Apocalypse Now by Francis F. Coppola in 1979, coconut trees appear, standing as sentinels or witnesses over illicit acts

Salty Ng Xi Jie

Curated by Kimberly Shen


across the way gathers the constellations of Salty Xi Jie Ng’s interdimensional practice and presents her long-term body of work as Baibai Research Group, a transdisciplinary lab that encompasses spirit studies embedded in the everyday vernacular. The exhibition unfolds as portals between realms, in a conveyance of whispers and creative manifestations that reverberate through the lush, mystical landscapes of the living and the dearly departed. In this multiverse, we are invited by the artist to engage in acts of remembrance, foregrounded by her research experiments with the Ancestor Dream Visitation Repository and her ongoing relationship with religious good merchant Ban Kah Hiang, and activated as performances, rituals, and intimate encounters through individual and collective journeys across the cosmos.



At Dusk, We Tread the Earth

12 to 27 February 

At Dusk, We Tread the Earth is a duo show by Carmen Ceniga Prado and
Arabelle Zhuang.

Inspired by the Sanskrit word “godhūli”, which refers to the beautiful illumination of dust particles sweeping into the air as grazing cows return home at sunset, At Dusk, We Tread the Earth denotes an imagery of vastness and stillness, where earth and sky meet at the horizon.


Nodes of Silence

10 - 31 March

Nodes of Silence is a group show curated by R. Yashini featuring Amrita Chandradas, Daniel Chong, Chok Si Xuan, Rafi Abdullah in collaboration with Tristan Lim and Studio Darius Ou, Yen Phang and Zarina Muhammad.


Nodes of Silence began by exploring various degrees of silence and collaborating with differently abled communities. During the early onset of Covid-19, the society shared a universal shift. While we endeavoured to adapt the disabled communities experienced their own set of challenges. With the reality of accessibility in the field of exhibition-making, this project aims to reshape the perception around exhibition-making for the differently abled. Anchoring on the prevailing interest in silence and shared cause of inclusivity, hearts were opened, minds remain teachable and this exhibition is a result of curiosity, care, awareness and compassion.


An uncanny assortment of miscellaneous objects

 𝓐𝓷 𝓾𝓷𝓬𝓪𝓷𝓷𝔂 𝓪𝓼𝓼𝓸𝓻𝓽𝓶𝓮𝓷𝓽 𝓸𝓯 𝓶𝓲𝓼𝓬𝓮𝓵𝓵𝓪𝓷𝓮𝓸𝓾𝓼 𝓸𝓫𝓳𝓮𝓬𝓽𝓼 is an international artist exchange
exhibition initiated by independent curators Nien-Ting Chen (Taiwan) and Jaxton Su (Singapore), bringing an assortment of random objects to the fore, in an attempt to discuss the imperative of current issues with the peculiarity of specific commodities. In light of the ubiquity of objects as multi-faceted constituents of culture, ten groups of young artists were invited to create new works based on chosen objects from their everyday life, with the aim to utilise cross-
cultural observation and examination of perspectives to construct a flourishing and experimental contemporary art platform between Singapore and Taiwan.


Thresholds of Being

Artists: Elizabeth Xu, Joel Seow, Anya Stern, Celine Lam, Sheryl Gwee, Yeo Xuan, Angelica Ong, Aw Ker Wey

𝓣𝓱𝓻𝓮𝓼𝓱𝓸𝓵𝓭𝓼 𝓸𝓯 𝓑𝓮𝓲𝓷𝓰 stages a meditative inquiry into what it means to be caught in the indeterminate spaces between established structures of thought, feeling, and experience. The show features eight young artists, with works across drawing, painting, video installation, photography, and animation.

We will be opening on 6 August, 5-9pm. There will be refreshments -- no fancy canapé and wine, but we will have pizza and cider! Xuan and Sheryl will also be giving a curators’ talk at 7pm, with Alfonse Chiu moderating.

The show runs from 6 August to 27 August, Thursdays to Sundays, 12-8pm, and Mondays to Wednesdays by appointment only.

Chan Davies Art Prize 2021: syn-

13 January to 2  February

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.

𝘮𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘨𝘳𝘢𝘻𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘵𝘢𝘮𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘧𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 is a group show featuring 5 young artists. Using Sara Ahmed’s happy objects as a prelude, the show looks at various ways and agencies wherein artists and audience members function within an artistic space.

“We are moved by things. And in being moved, we make things.”

In Happy Objects, Ahmed describes the relationship people have with objects. And while she discusses the concept of happiness as an affective emotion, 𝘮𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘨𝘳𝘢𝘻𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘵𝘢𝘮𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘧𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 looks at affect on a broader spectrum. The artists in the show propose ways of orientating around various arrays, and disarrays. From common objects to digital manipulation, 𝘮𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘨𝘳𝘢𝘻𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘵𝘢𝘮𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘧𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 prompts, nudges and whispers.

Starch presents ‘/fam’, a group show that reflects on our notions of kinship, chosen families and the notion of belonging. Working with four artists, ‘/fam’ expands on their various practices, while also spotlighting the varied support structures and systems we create for ourselves.

/fam' is a group show organised in collaboration with Grey Projects under Post Repeal: Let's Think About Us! Taking on a different approach to our Queer Show this year, Grey Projects transforms into a community space, not only for art or culture exchange but one for gathering, mutual support and collective learning. Working with various self-organised practices of queer artists and collectives based in Singapore, we have put together an exciting queer programme over the months of September to November 2022.


On Earth as it is in Water

5 - 27 November

Aki Hassan, Nina Djekic, Weixin Quek Chong

As we navigate the liminal spaces between the abstract and the visceral, the imagined and embodied, how do we hone our attention and generosity towards one another? 

What intimacies do we desire to partake in, what vocabularies do we imagine embodying? 

Pushing and probing at the bounds of translation, legibility and connection across bodies, species and ontologies, like letters brings together the practices of Aki Hassan ( @akihassans ), Nina Djekić ( @ninadjeki )and Weixin Quek Chong ( @jadeite.bat ). 

With a shared understanding of language as a visceral and affectual medium, the artists speak to each other through a variety of forms; text, video, sculpture and movement.

The motif of the textual narrative, both present and implied, runs through this gathering of new works; an underlying conversation layering forms, textures, voices and images like the crunching, crumbling, composting detritus of a forest floor. 



Can we all just hug again?

15 December to 2 January

Can we all hug again? is a duo show by Alysha Rahmat Shah and Nurisabella Andrews. As a way to end off the year, and perhaps the year before, the show is a proposal by the artists.

A proposal to ask that you dance, sing, and laugh. A proposal to heal, to believe, and to sleep. Can we all hug again invites you to come enjoy a warm cup of chai, talk, make, and recuperate.

A communal space accompanies an exhibition of works occupying the two levels within starch. Can we all hug again invites you into a warm, assuring embrace.


Inheritance of parts

15 October to 7 November

Something is amiss. This feeling… like grief. Hanging on like wet cloth. A distant wind. Silent lightning. Thunder rumbling. Stomach sinking. The horizon reveals itself in parting clouds. Broken lines leading to nowhere. Have I always felt like I was drowning?

“Don’t rock the boat” they said.

Inheritance of parts is a group show inspired by Kuo Pao Kun’s Descendants of the Eunuch Admiral featuring Irfan Kasban, Li Yan Loong, Marcia Ong, Moses Tan, Rosemainy Buang, and Zachary Chan.

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.



19 June to 10 July 2021 

Recast presents recent works by Anthony Chin and Green Zeng, two artists who interrogate historiographies of Singapore and the region through their multidisciplinary practices.


Their second collaborative exhibition, Recast focuses on little-known local and regional histories through the mediums of sculptural installation and video, revealing otherwise unacknowledged structures of power in the colonial and post-colonial eras.

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.


Lather & Pave

30 January to 06 February 2021

Lather & Pave is a joint exhibition by Joanne Pang and Stephanie Jane Burt. Inquiring into the nature of rest and what it possibly entails, the artists dwell into the mundane nature of cleaning as a form of resistance.

Something Similar 

13 November to 5 December

The digital world, smartphones and social media have become a fundamental part of our lives today. With this shift, photography has evolved to become a form of communication where visuals are used to interact with one another in lieu of text, at the same time allowing for further interpretations of the images themselves as an artistic form. In the same vein, Chua Chye Teck and Liu Liling have maintained an image-based correspondence through social messaging platforms and this project is a result of these dialogues as an invitation to rethink their relationship with photography and image-making today.


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.



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.



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.
