Yvonne Lam, a young Malaysian artist based in Singapore.


Substation presented only one exhibition, by Yvonne for New Criteria. This was a major show for Yvonne, who presented collages of digital images of various objects and body parts. Unlike most digital manipulation — where the point is to make seamless the effects — Yvonne played with these seams and the clash of different perspectives, exploring the tensions generated by the “cuts” in her pictures. Her images are surrealistic, and a bit macabre — flesh and meat are arecurring theme, but so are hands and playing cards. Another interesting feature of the project was how the images on the walls resonated with the physical features of The Substation Gallery, which has strong lines and edges accentuated by the white walls
