All In Her Day’s Work
All In Her Day’s Work is a solo exhibition by Charmaine Poh, a Singaporean-Chinese documentary photographer and artist whose works are concerned with memory, gender, youth and solitude.
The showcase explores the pressures that have been placed on women’s bodies, through a photographic series which use the tradition of documentary storytelling to consider the pressures placed on women’s bodies and the performativity of gender. Charmaine has gathered narratives from women as a way to open up to possible new perspectives of the “ideal beauty” that many of them strive for.
Singapore is well known for its highly developed market economy, which thrives on avowed meritocracy and high levels of competitiveness. Yet, despite the veneer of social mobility, there are labour sectors which are reliant on the persistence of traditional expectations of how women should appear, speak, and act.
This exhibition is presented with support from ION Art, ION Orchard, the Cultural Matching Fund and the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival.
All In Her Day’s Work will be displayed at the ION Art gallery from 17 to 28 January 2018.
ION Art is a prominent partner of visual art as a key platform for many established and emerging artists to exhibit both retrospective and first time work. With Waning, Waxing, ION Art has provided yet another stage for emerging artists to let their work communicate with the world.
Through the visions and voices of young artists living in Singapore, visitors are invited to experience a variety of process-based work addressing fluctuations in materiality, identity, life, death and even the art-making process itself.
The exhibition will also feature a series of programmes on 6 and 13 January, which includes artist talks, workshops and demonstrations.
