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.
Charlotte Colbert is a Franco/British artist and filmmaker who lives and works in London. She is best known for her surreal and dark imagery. Her work has been likened to the surreal work of Toomer, Breton and Dali (Phaeton), described as 'surreal and delicate' and 'a gateway into dreams' (Huffington Post), an 'exploration of the human mind' (Vogue) and as 'existing in that space between dreams and nightmares' (Las Ultimas Notices).Read More
Colbert’s artistic work is strongly anchored within the language of film and storytelling. Her pictures are mostly conceived as a series, a sequence developed in script format before being shot. More recently she has developed large-scale cortene metal sculptures displaying moving image. Her work has strong philosophical undertones, and often plays on questions of time, space and identity. Richly evocative and cinematic, her black-and-white work delves into interior experiences of the mind.
She explores the inner and outer spaces our minds occupy and transform, either by fear or fantasy. The subjects of isolation, the self and gender also drive her imagination.

Charlotte Colbert’s works come to Gazelli Art House, London, this July. With an interest in the surreal and the temporality of contemporary culture, Colbert creates visual narratives using the familiar icons and emojis of instant communication.
