Appetites for Litter: The 8th Emerging Artists Show 2006 examines the concept of ‘garbage’ in the context of contemporary art. This exhibition will be held in Plastique Kinetic Worms, Singapore, during 9 – 25 Nov 2006.
The exhibition showcases 4 young Singapore artists who have been making critical impressions with their art practice. Curated by artist Michael Lee Hong Hwee, who is noted for his multidisciplinary exploration of issues in desire and space, the exhibition will explore a consortium of specific issues ranging from institutional critique to environmentalism, everyday violence, defense mechanism, nature in the urban context, human imagination and gothic sensibilities. These issues will be examined through paintings, installation, video, books and objects.
Discover the peculiar fascination with trash and critical transformation of rubbish into Shubigi Rao’s pseudo-archeology of garbage; Jane Porter’s animation and installation starring rubbish in a leading role; Yeoh Wee Hwee’s horrifying yet beautiful sculptures and objects of made from cellulose tape; and Alexis Hy’s manga junkyard.
In-conjunction with the exhibition is a talk and a publication. The curator’s and artists’ talk will offer insights into the genesis of the exhibition, the curatorial process and the artists’ creative practices, while limited editions of a companion book will both document the exhibition and address issues related to the exhibition theme in-depth.
As a gesture of appreciation towards Mr Albert CY Teo, who supports and volunteers in Patient Care Centre, part of artwork sales from the exhibition will be proceeded to the organisation.
