Event Details

Far from being inanimate or void, objects and places are repositories of history, memory and even consciousness. Taking on outsize symbolic qualities, they can represent abstract ideas and signal emotion, and, in the case of animistic belief systems, also possess energies or spirits that people powerfully relate to.
In four exhibitions around Esplanade, artists from Singapore and Asia explore how objects, architecture and places embody lost or concealed stories, and the ways they represent the aspirations and complexities of contemporary living. New and recent photographic, video, sculptural and painting installations by UuDam Tran Nguyen (Vietnam), Lim Sokchanlina (Cambodia), Sim Chi Yin (Singapore), Sarker Protick (Bangladesh), Phan Thao-Nguyen (Vietnam), and Kevin Fee (Singapore) will be presented.
