Don’t miss Japanese-Australia artist Hiromi Tango’s stunning display of her photography, installation and sculptural work at her first solo exhibition in Singapore. For some of these works, Tango was inspired by the tangle of cables and devices that have become a part of our everyday lives, and questions what it means to connect on a human level. She believes in creating conversations of healing through arts engagement, and this exhibition poses a fundamental question on what it means to be human.
