Invitation to my next art exhibition, CAPITAL


My art exhibition on the death penalty, CAPITAL has an opening reception at 7pm, 21 May (next Saturday) and I would love it if you all could attend.

Brief info: In this exhibition entitled, 'CAPITAL', Seelan Palay & Shikin Ali apply a new visual ensemble to explore ideas of crime and punishment, social and political constructs, and humanitarian values that hang in the balance.

I would really appreciate if you could help me get the word out about this event and bring along your friends and family.

Here is the Facebook event link: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=171070486284587

Thank you very much everyone,
Seelan Palay

it' simple in every country, including S'pore - if you can't take the punishment, then don't do the crime, man.

If it's that simple in Singapore, I wonder why those higher up in the social and political ladder have not taken or gotten any punishment?

If the law isn't fair, then I won't support the law, man.

just wait and see what's going to happen to the 62-year-old frenchman, who is the imf chief, in new york city.

*big u.s. states like new york, florida & california have the dealth penalty, bloke.

I'm not talking about the elites in other countries, I'm talking about those in Singapore. And for the same and related drug-related offences that they have escaped.

Big US states like NY may have the death penalty, but the whole of Philippines which has a much higher population doesn't have it. Just because some US states have it doesn't make the executions of others elsewhere in the world justified - especially if they are wrongfully killed.

The global trend is towards the abolition of the death penalty.

Seelan, The video 'All the Lines flows out' by Singapore Artist Charles Lim won the Venice Bienale 2011.
It is about ISA and a secret prison to detain people. The video featuring 'drains' is also used by Mas Selamat to escape. Artist also mentioned that the Govt took away peoples' land by the sea and thus Singaporeans are lost and disconnected.
Overall an Interesting video but Todays Online report did not mention the real intention of the artis as usual. Check it out below:
