PRESS RELEASE: DOWNLOAD

FOST Gallery is delighted to present the works of Kray Chen.

Hot Temple is the second solo exhibition by Kray Chen. This new body of work presents itself as a scene at a Teochew street-opera tent in Singapore. A handful of sparsely scattered chairs are each loosely facing a fiery staging of a story from a distant past. The global pandemic adds to the narrative the loneliness, disjointedness and division of people, ideas, and behaviours. Through a new series of chair-sculptures and a video opera, Kray takes the emotional temperature of a time of uncertainty, of the reflective Self, of our rage and anger, and of the metered distance between each other.
