And The Rest Of Such Things is an exhibition that shines the spotlight on the works of 11 artists from different corners of the world, who are this year graduating from Lasalle College of the Arts' MA Fine Arts programme. They include a range of mediums, including painting, photography and sculpture, and highlight the intricacies and complexity of the creative process.
NOW WE ARE NONE (2016)
By Dagrun Adalsteinsdottir
Two single-channel high-definition videos, 22 minutes
This video work explores the personal and theoretical, and how these two worlds are in constant dialogue with each other. It is composed of images the artist collected over the year and tells two intertwined stories: a love story and a tale of self-discovery.
SILVER RIVER (2015)
By Deusa Blumke
Mixed media on Perspex, 20x20cm
The artist is researching painting as a material, exploring how a painting can be created in a moment of time where the mind and body are responding to encounters.
By Martha Chaudhry
Mixed media installation, dimensions variable
Through processes such as fragmentation and overlay, the artist reclassifies the clouds and looks for intersections among the sky, clouds and memory. The work is part of a series that contemplates issues such as identity, time and belonging.
By Jordi Fornies
Wood PVA, filament, enamel, oil, dimensions variable
The visual artist and musician crosses conventional boundaries for this work, which uses 3D printing and design to create a prototype of a simple instrument that moves from a basic tube shape into the form of a complex wave.
By Kanchana Gupta
Burnt and peeled layers of oil paint, dimensions variable
This work is a deconstruction and reconstruction of surfaces and traces, and looks at the leftovers of painting and its remnants. The artist questions what a fragment is, what it signifies, and what it means to preserve or to discard something.
BUNDLE OF LOVE (2016)
By Justin Lee
Tin cans, 97x816cm
This installation is made up of discarded tins of evaporated milk the artist collected from hawker centres around Singapore. Through his art, mundane, everyday things which are easily overlooked get a new lease of life.
COOL GUY DON'T LOOK AT EXPLOSION (2016)
By George Liu Zhen
Oil on canvas, dimensions variable
The saturation of media is blurring the boundaries between representation and reality. Inspired by pop culture, the artist questions his role as an artist in the modern world, where art seems to be no longer capable of revealing the truth or meaning of the world through images.
UNTITLED (STILL I RISE) (2016)
By Sukeshi Sondhi
Fabric, dimensions variable
The installations by the artist, who examines issues such as gender, power, identity and domesticity, convey the invisible presence of the marginalised female.
