Tekad Kolektif

Of Spaces and Phases is part of Singapore Art Week. Download the festival pocket guide here.

They will be inviting two speakers, Jimmy Seah, the owner of Laundry, and Maisarah Kamal for a panel discussion. The panel will cover and share various topics, such as the history of Laundry 66 in the context of early shophouses and the evolution of a space. They will also discuss the artwork present in the exhibit and their views on the role of art in Singapore, past and present. The panel would cover views from different generations and would involve discussions with the audience for a meaningful dialogue.

 

About Of Spaces and Phases

Of Spaces and Phases dabbles into the fragments of historical remnants located at 66 Spottiswoode Park Road. Here, it situates the only visible limestone mural facade from the early 19th century. Located on Blair Plain Conservation area, the Early Shophouse style building retains many of its early features and relics. Amongst the street of old shophouses, the fresco stands out with its eye-catching colours, reminiscent of modern graffiti.

The exhibition site acts as a springboard for the participating artists to reflect, respond and work in situ to invigorate both tangible and intangible heritage merits into their works of art. The interior and exterior acts as a departure point for the visual artists to create conversational pieces that complement the loaded architectural site by assessing the effects of materiality, history and technology.

Of Spaces and Phases showcases work of art by artist-curators Maisarah Kamal, Muhammad Masuri Bin Mazlan as well as promising young talents, Zulkhairi Zulkiflee, Foo Hui Wen, Fazleen Karlan and Anna Chan.
