Deepest Sympathies & Synonyms (My next exhibition)


Hi everyone, you're all invited to Deepest Sympathies & Synonyms, the latest exhibition by Seelan Palay & Shikin Ali, opening on 19th Oct.

Deepest Sympathies & Synonyms (Exhibition)
Wednesday, October 19 · 7:00pm - 10:00pm
15 Minutes (The cafe) @ La Salle College of the Arts, 1 McNally Street

In this exhibition, artist-duo Seelan & Shikin apply a newly developed visual ensemble to reflect on the chronic dichotomy of Singapore's social structures.

The exploration into both the artists' approaches to the portrayal of the evolving civic system lent itself to the stylistic application and conceptual framework in the created set of drawings, installations, collages and photographs. The eventual works displayed in the exhibition are the shared products of both artists, intertwined in form and intellection.

By visually translating the relativity between Singapore's public memory, social landscape, critical discourse and modern history, the artists seek to portray the paradox of power and experience in the island state.
