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.
The philosophical reflective process of Gianni Caravaggio (b. 1968, Italy) aims to investigate the foundation of art and its production through the realisation of works definable as devices for demiurgic acts, capable to build space within the space thanks to their evocative potential. His works allow the spectator to retrace the artist's creation act and generate new different scenarios by way of imagination. The viewer seems to be called to complete the artwork, guided by the suggestive power of essential shapes, colours and poetical titles that characterise Gianni Caravaggio's production. The materials of his works go beyond their usual attributes and generate unexpected relations with human thought, leading the spectator to amplify his preconceptions and venture above the objectivity, along the subjective experience.Read More
