SPRMRKT is honoured to present the second instalment of its community and social support initiative, “Dining With A Conscience” featuring and supporting photographer with special needs Isabelle Lim. Born with Nager Syndrome, Isabelle’s hearing disabilities have enabled her to become more observant and intuitive as a photographer, bringing out the beauty of the ordinary by capturing moments of people’s lives – from their interaction with the surroundings to their candid facial expressions and body language. The event commences with two closed-door fund-raising dinners on 23rd and 24th November 2017 featuring Isabelle’s photo essay titled ‘Living With Grace’, presented as a silent video. Inspired by her elderly grandmother’s resilience, having lived well in her silver years, the photo essay depicts her grandmother’s daily life and showcases her unseen strengths of self-reliance, determination and ability. The elderly, much like the disabled, are often stereotyped as infirm and helpless. The photo essay aim to shed light on people with special needs and their profound abilities to live meaningfully. Isabelle believes her grandmother is a prime example of living with grace and stoicism, even in old age. Simultaneously, the event aims to heighten awareness of and raise funds for the TODAY Enable Fund, which [...]

Mizuma Gallery is pleased to announce Transitions, a solo exhibition by Korean artist, Kim Tae-Ho. Kim Tae-Ho, one of the leading artists of Korean monochrome art since the 1970s, is highly celebrated for having expanded the possibilities of his art form within the East Asian contemporary practice. His bold experimentation across media, sometimes incorporating traditional handmade hanji paper within his heavily textured, monochromatic works, has strongly allied his practice with the legacy of his contemporary Dansaekhwa painters. Kim Tae-Ho’s paintings retain the unique characteristic of their vivid palette: a product of the artist’s meticulous working method to accrue a dense sediment of colour within the picture plane itself. The exhibition will see the progression of Kim’s career with his the first of his series Form, up till his most recent, Internal Rhythm. Dating back to 1977 when Form was first presented, the paintings attempted to express an abstract figurative subject buried within geometric and illusionary forms. With hanji paper later incorporated, Form took inspiration from building shutters that stand strong as a symbol for resistance; Kim sought to express this significance of miscommunication and isolation of people in contemporary times. Moving forward into the 1990s, Internal Rhythm was birthed, shifting [...]

Born and raised in Singapore, Tan Oe Pang is a leading contemporary multi-disciplinary artist with diverse approaches to art making. His early notable works include the highly idiosyncratic “Tropical Rainforest” series of paintings that were articulated in a vigorous style; emblazoned with elaborate brushwork of vivid colours and a predominance of dramatically bold strokes. The combination of techniques was used to accentuate the vitality and primitive characteristics of the tropical rainforest in the distinctive region. Coupled with a deeper perception of spatial composition and an expanded worldview, the artworks by Oe Pang have evolved subsequently since year 2000. This has led to a gradual shift in emphasis towards depicting his subjects in their most natural and purest forms; he eliminates superfluous details with incisive brushwork, moving from intricate to concise expression in his recent works. From 13 November 2017 to 31 January 2018, Sky One Art Gallery proudly presents Less is More – The Minimal Art of Tan Oe Pang. This solo exhibition will continue into the new year, featuring 30 pieces of minimal art which include 20 Chinese ink and 10 oil paintings. Having a strong foundation in the techniques of Chinese ink painting, together with a careful [...]
Roundtable: Singapore in Crocodiles gathers practitioners in the field of natural heritage and social sciences, visual arts and academia around the notion of crocodiles in the Singapore psyche. Prompted by Buaya: The Making of a Non-myth, an ongoing prep-room project by Kate Pocklington, the roundtable examines how themes from the research display can be extended through the ongoing conversations and interests of the crocodile as a juncture in historic, scientific and cultural perceptions. This is part of the continuum of prep-room activities that constructs itself as a dialogic space for audience to problematize propositional aspects of curatorial work and to bring their own cultural perspectives to bear on its inquiry. Roundtable: Singapore in Crocodiles situates itself in developing further collaborations around the iterations of display of this particular research on the crocodile in Singapore. The event also launches the zine produced by NUS Museum summer interns Natalie Lie and David Low. About the prep-room project Buaya: The Making of a Non-myth is an evolving bodies of works around ideas on the saltwater crocodile in Singapore. It holds a space that welcomes the working presentations of parallel research projects and interpretations done by professionals in fields of natural history, arts, cultural [...]
16 is the age that is technically the threshold of womanhood. In ancient times it was earlier. Using three colors of red , black and white as building blocks, I have deconstructed female characters from two of the greatest epics in Hindu Mythology – The Ramayana and The Mahabharata. These two epics are the quintessential writings which are the bases for all societal and cultural ‘rules, norms,guidelines’ within which our society operates. The sanctity of these texts is paramount however the interpretation is questionable. The ambiguity and the way these are interpreted becomes subjective. Passion and aggression are two sides of the same coin, and can literally be interpreted as a metamorphosis of energy from the positive to the negative and the sexual connotations of the color red are just as vital to deconstruct. Red is the color for fertility but also the color for bloodshed and aggression. These 16 women are examined through paintings, sculpture and installations, with the focus being on the relative balance between the three colors representing three different emotions that are experienced – with the balance of the palette denoting degrees of the dominant emotion. Excerpt from an Essay by Ina Puri (curator and art [...]
SPRMRKT’s final art exhibition for 2017 titled Fasciation: A Ruthless Fetish runs from 29 Nov 2017 to 9 Jan 2018, and features new work by PAYNK (artist name of Sharon Yang) that examines and questions ideas of beauty. The exhibition will also feature a unique combination of the visual and performing arts, and a series of thematic workshops. PAYNK examines beauty and distortion through the lens of fasciation, a rare condition of mutation or abnormal growth in plants that leads to distorted flowers, fruits and stems. This series of works puts, side by side, elaborate illustrations of fasciated plant life and the female form. OPENING RECEPTION To celebrate the opening of the exhibition, SPRMRKT will host a reception with PAYNK present as a special guest. Highlights of the reception will be an interactive performance by contortionist Jaclyn Fong who will bring the artwork to life for a brief moment by mimicking the poses found therein and an interactive musical performance titled Music about Fasciation where the audience participates by deciding on the rules of engagement among the musicians. Reception details: 6 December Wednesday 6.30pm – 9.30pm SPRMRKT, 2 McCallum Street Special guest – PAYNK Registration for this reception may be [...]

Personally conducted by the artist PAYNK, participants will learn more about fasciation, basic drawing techniques and, in particular, how to draw plants and flowers. At the end of the 90-minute workshop, participants will have created their very own artwork on fasciation and be able to bring home their very own framed illustration. Participants will be served a sharing platter of pasta, and a glass each of sparkling wine, compliments of SPRMRKT. Illustration Workshop details at a glance: 8 December, Friday 6pm – 8.30pm SPRMRKT, 2 McCallum Street $36nett per person Registration for this workshop may be made directly to email@example.com. Dates of subsequent workshops will be updated on SPRMRKT’s Facebook page and website.
In conjunction with the book launch, AC43 Gallery will also play host to the exhibition, Rhythmic Compulsion: Paintings by Anthony Chua Say Hua from 1 to 20 December 2017. On showcase are 20 works including abstract compositions, shophouse scenes and the artist’s recent neo-cubist treatment of local heritage buildings. Of special highlight is a 105 x 104 cm work titled, 悲惨人生. Loosely translated as “to face the bleakness of life squarely”, the brassy use of colours in this painting mimicking graffiti is surely a clear departure from Chua’s signature depiction of poetic back alleys – the artist’s visual stance reflecting the harshness of reality often experienced living in a fast-changing cityscape. Rhythmic Compulsion is part of a joint period of exhibition programmes for this December organised by Bras Basah Complex Galleries. Born in Singapore in 1966, Anthony Chua Say Hua is a multi-award winning artist who has been practising full-time art since 1996. An alumnus of the Goldsmiths College, University of London under the Chen Chong Swee Overseas Art Scholarship and former winner of the National Arts Council’s Young Artist Award (2001), Anthony Chua also earned the Silver Award in the established artist category in the 33rd UOB Painting of [...]
Treasures of the Natural World at The Art Science Museum Singapore opens this 25th November with a blockbuster feast of historic artefacts and treasures from the National History Museum in London. With over 200 exhibits on loan from the National History Museum in London, Treasures of the Natural World is a collaboration which took three years to prepare. Showing in Southeast Asia for the first time, these unique treasures have been hand-picked from over 80 million specimens, representing the best of the museum’s collection. A monstrous three-meter long garoupa, skeletons of a saber tooth tiger, a “cursed” amethyst and mummified cat. Step into the Treasures of the Natural World and travel back to almost 4 billion years when historians and scientists discovered facts and evolutions of our natural world. The exhibition takes visitors on a voyage of discovery, through the centuries, from the Enlightenment of the 18th century, through to the present day, showing how pioneering explorers, collectors, and scientists revolutionised our understanding of nature. Exhibition highlights include a handwritten extract from Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species, a magnificent sabre-toothed cat, a Martian meteorite, a mysterious ‘cursed’ amethyst, and a selection of Alfred Russel Wallace’s collection of insects from his [...]
