2 June 2022 – Lonely Vectors and Superfluous Things: Paper at Singapore Art Museum
Last week, we headed over to Singapore Art Museum to check out its slew of new programmes.
Is paper still relevant in the digital age? Over in Gallery 2, Superfluous Things: Paper explores craft traditions in contemporary art, unfolding the “material intelligence” of paper with a series of playful, visually enticing installations.
Located in Gallery 1, Lonely Vectors explores the global movement of bodies, things, and histories. The exhibition is a site-specific response to SAM’s location at Tanjong Pagar Distripark. It grapples with the complex economies of production and consumption.
Shu Lea Cheang’s dystopian UKI VIRUS SURGING looks at the body’s cellular evolution, exploring the “possibility of a viral love.” Be sure to check out Tiffany Chung’s hand-embroidered map traces the migration of Vietnamese communities from the 1970s-90s.
