The Spirituality of Perception


Notions of surveillance and control in society are extended to how the body is treated and articulated. A forensic quality runs through these works… Chng Nai Wee exposes and demystifies that organ most inscribed with romantic rhetoric and narratives in the history of aesthetics through his light-box installation.

The notes above provide one possible way in which we can frame the practices of selected artist in NSA01… It is unquestionable that this time round, the viewer would have to learn to flex new mental muscles to engage with many of the works presented.
