Event Details

Dawn Ng – ‘Into Air’ 

St Cyprian’s Church, London, Uk 

7 – 23 July 2022 

A seminal site-specific exhibition in a historical location in London curated by Jenn Ellis and designed in collaboration with APSARA Studio. 

Time – how it flows, echoes, slips, is the subject of Singaporean artist Dawn Ng’s seminal first solo show in London, located in the living heritage church St Cyprian’s, Marylebone. ‘Into Air ’is curated by Jenn Ellis, APSARA Studio and presented by Sullivan+Strumpf. 

An ambitious assemblage of photographic, painting, installation and video, the works explore time held in the ultimate ephemeral object that is ice. Set in harmonious dialogue with the church’s minimalist neo gothic interior, ‘Into Air’ marks a thoughtful engagement with space and context where each work is apprehended as an individual encounter: how it stands, loiters, hangs, gravitates. From tonality to form, material to mood, Dawn Ng prompts us to reflect on the properties of cyclical passing, how beyond numerical chronology time is a matter of feeling and moment-making. 

Each element comes together in Dawn Ng’s cyclical constellation that favours creation, degradation, dereliction and rebirth. Viscerally emotive, they evoke time’s idiosyncratic and pluralistic nature, how it varies between person, location, experience and object hood. ‘Into Air’ ultimately sings in St Cyprian’s, imbuing its walls and historicity with an ephemeral moment, akin to a breath, in which one feels and remembers.
