STPI's Emi Eu reflects on S.E.A. Focus, an STPI project platforming artists and galleries from Southeast Asia, in the wake of Art Stage's decline in 2019 and ahead of the launch of Singapore's new art fair, Art SG, in October 2020.
With India Art Fair set to open amid nationwide protests, Kanika Anand introduces shows in New Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata that express shifting socio-political identities, modes of resistance, and explorations of place-making.
Images from abroad , Lada Nakonechna's solo exhibition at Galerie EIGEN + ART in Berlin, considers the barriers that exist between depictions of conflict and their viewers.
Insane Park’s works mimic images from TV, and speak about the artist’s concerned outlook on media. The contemporary public homogeneously and passively absorbs the excessive production of fictional media images, arriving at a point where active imagination and complex thinking nears impossibility. In particular, the most familiar TV programs enforce the public to blindly absorb the fabrication in which real and virtual worlds coexist. Just as an ordinary subject transforms into an extraordinary one through media, Park’s works using cable lines portray people around him as if they were criminals, missing children or wanted people on a flyer. The artist focuses on such emotional effect of media on man, and delivers the subjectively experienced feelings of anxiety onto the canvas. However, the artist leaves the audience open to different degrees of anxiety, and invites different subjective interpretations on the aura of his work.
