Event Details

Group Exhibition – ‘Notions in Space’ 

19 February – 27 March 

STPI Creative Workshop & Gallery 

‘Notions in Space’ draws on the idea of the poetic image, and how (oft-overlooked or transient) spaces can suddenly penetrate us with considerable emotions without warning nor reason. The exhibited artworks thus function as both explicatory notes on various types of spaces, as well as physical markers – notes and nodes embedded in the space of the gallery. 

Rirkrit Tiravanija’s (b. Argentina, Thai) works play on the idea of time travelling and time measurement to question our conventional methodologies in ascribing a logic to the experience of this dimension. 

Directing our focus to forgotten landscapes, Handiwirman Saputra’s (Indonesia) Ujung Sangkut Sisi Sentuh / Suspended Forms is an amalgamation of forms borrowed from various discarded objects from our everyday lives (fabric scraps, random plastic or metal parts, styrofoam bits). 

Ruminating on their long-standing concern of (away from) home and belonging, Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan’s (Philippines/Australia) HOME: Project Another Country II—comprised of cardboard pulp houses with individuals’ meanings of home scribed onto them—ruminates on the many connotations that one would associate with their own dwelling spaces, and what it means to feel at home. 

Other highlights include works by Genevieve Chua (Singapore), Goh Beng Kwan (Singapore), Hong Zhu An (Singapore) and Melati Suryodarmo (Indonesia).

Also featuring in the exhibition are two works by British artist Richard Deacon belonging to his Dog Days series as well as works by Do Ho Suh (South Korea/UK/USA), Teppei Kaneuji (Japan) and Yim Ja-Hyuk (South Korea).
