FOST Gallery [Blk 1]
In Its Place
20 September - 10 November 2019
FOST Gallery is delighted to present In Its Place. Works from Elaine Navas, Jimmy Ong, Ezzam Rahman and Wyn-Lyn Tan will proffer both long-held views and new perspectives on still-life.
The golden age of the genre may date back to 17th century Netherlands, but the deliberate act of arranging objects to make a coherent composition and narrative is even more relevant in this social media age. The spatial relationship between objects is also a metaphor for human relationships, where each has a role to play in order for things to fall into place.

A Journey of Forking Paths by Maryanto

4 Aug - 26 Sep 2019
The work, first presented in Shanghai Biennale 2018, traces back both personal narrative and social history crossing different time periods, cultures, and languages. The artist sheds light on the memories of two people who lived in Myanmar at distinct times, taking references from George Orwell’s famous essay “Shooting an Elephant”, as well as the accounts of Watuze Ali, a man of Bengali descent born in Myanmar.
Yavuz Gallery [Blk 9]
Keb Cerda, Dahlia
24 Aug - 22 Sep
In Keb Cerda’s latest solo exhibition, Dahlia, the artist presents a new set of paintings and launches a new virtual game in his continuing exploration of integrating traditional art forms and new media, virtual reality, and gaming platforms. Dahlia takes us into a world of dark alleys and sinister parks, visualised dramatically under a blue and purple-tinted twilight. The game plays around notions of heightened and omnipresent surveillance in the technologically-dominated era, and works around these concepts through the classic contrast between light and dark but invigorated by the interactivity brought by mobile application. Dahlia is yet another social commentary among Cerda’s oeuvre incorporated with humour and fun-filled experience that transcends the boundaries of traditional painting. The exhibition is curated by Ruel Caasi.

The exhibition is curated by Ruel Caasi.

In The Vitrine: Nguyen Trinh Thi Landscape Series #1, 2013 [Blk 43]
28 May – 22 September 2019
Exploring the idea of landscapes as silent witnesses to history, Artist Nguyen Trinh Thi collects hundreds of images depicting anonymous subjects pointing towards seemingly nondescript landscapes. Taken by innumerable Vietnamese press photographers, the photos show people indicating a bygone incident. The land bears witness to the volatile changes in our geo-political, cultural, and social systems, while questioning how unsustainable practices affect the environment. Does a landscape harbour ill-feelings towards incidents that have harmed it? If it could break its silence, what forgotten narratives and unspoken histories would it reveal?
