UNTITLED #1 (2013)

UNTITLED (CERAMIC VESSELS) (2015)

By Kathlyn Loke, ceramics, various dimensions

Drawing inspiration from the cup, a most basic form of receptacle, Loke merges the mouths of two cups to make one vessel. This work reflects on the idea of friendship and its potential overlap with desire.

OUR WORLDUST ENJOY THE MOMENT (2015)

By Naufal Abshar, acrylic and soft pastels on canvas, 91x61cm

The artist, inspired by his younger days, captures a personal story depicting his relationships with his brother and sister, and their childhood hobbies.

UNDER MY SKIN (2015)

By Tinu Verghis, digital print, 59.4x84.1cm

The artist, who is also a fashion model, taps into the strength of the female body to form a language that reacts to a system dominated by men. Through the act of "peeling" her own skin, she removes cultural constructions about her image and reclaims her body as her own.

HAO RE AH! #1 (2013)

By Tong Shi Hui, photograph, 29.7x42cm

UNTITLED (GO AWAY~#3) (2015)

By Lau Yiling, digital print, 59.4x84.1cm

Lau's colourful work is based on childhood memories she never had, as she is intrigued by the impossibility of perfectly capturing the past. She transforms her fantasies into reality, using commonly found materials to blur the lines between craft and art.

TIONG BAHRU (2015)

By Asanul Nazryn, illustrations, 50x50cm (edition of 10)

Asanul's illustrations depict HDB flats because he values their importance as examples of Singapore's historical development. He hopes people will consider them as archive materials worth maintaining.
