Silverlens at Art Dubai 2022 

11 – 13 March 2022 (9 – 10 March by invitation only)

Madinat Jumeirah Conference & Events Centre, Dubai 

Silverlens presents a tight selection of artists from southeast Asia and the diaspora working across generations, locations, and media – James Clar (Philippine heritage), Maria Taniguchi (Philippines), Mit Jai Inn (Thailand).

James Clar is a light and media artist. His work analyzes the effects of media and technology on our perception of culture, nationality, and identity. James will be premiering a new work called Cloud Seed, an interactive video installation created for Art Dubai 2022 that immerses viewers in a simulation of rain, fog, and rain. Cloud Seed uses technology to bring attention to man’s effect on the environment in a visual way that is poetic and cinematic. 

Maria Taniguchi’s works encompass painting, sculpture, video, and installation. Her practices investigate space and time along with social and historical contexts. Her series of Untitled brick paintings is an ongoing series that had been initiated in 2008. Maria Taniguchi will be showing one brick painting from 2018 – 19, as well as two new paintings from her series room of phases from 2021. The new series of monochromatic checkered pattern paintings calls to the imagination at once an oversized chess board or else a calendar. This visual idiom itself unravels time in its most prolific sense: hours passed or spent, days in a year, turns in a game of chess. 

Mit Jai Inn is a widely respected senior Thai artist known for his boundary-defying painting and socially engaged practices. Mit will be showing pieces from his series titled Actants. Actants refers to both human and non-human agents as equal participants in an ongoing set of transformations – a metaphor for the artist’s collaboration with light, color, labor, and time in contextual relation to metaphysical, political and social constructions of power and belief. Mit extends his homage and playful dissent from tenants of modernism, with rich crossings into the realm and language of textiles and weaving.
