The Forgotten Space (2010) by Allan Sekula and Nöel Burch, film still.
Fish Story, to be continued presents an investigation of the global maritime industry, an extensive research of the late artist, theorist, photography historian and critic, Allan Sekula. Showing for the first time in Southeast Asia, NTU CCA Singapore will juxtapose chapters from Fish Story (1988 – 1993) alongside two film works, Lottery of the Sea (2006) and The Forgotten Space (2010) co-directed with Nöel Burch. With a focus on the core works of his explorations of the maritime world, this exhibition aims to emphasise Allan Sekula’s sustained argument that the sea is the “forgotten space” of the contemporary global economy.
This exhibition is part of NTU CCA Singapore’s curatorial programme PLACE.LABOUR.CAPITAL, a trandisciplinary research addressing the complexities of a world in flux and the network of connections that such underlying elements define at both local and global scale.
