Unpacking London - An exhibition

 

An Exhibition By Appointment Only

12A Perumal Road (Farrer Park MRT Exit G)

6 - 29 Nov 2003

With all scepticism accorded to young artists returned from an overseas art education, Unpacking London aims to look at the value of collected things, and sojourning in London, within the context of conceptual art and a private celebration of the opening of a new artist studio.

The exhibition starts with unopened shipping cartons neatly stacked in a room, with receipts of shipping and rough inventory lists and ends with photographs of visitors, catalogue of items, and a nifty catalogue of this event. An audio guide will be made available to private visitors.

Through the procedural action of unpacking, sorting 20 odd tea chest and bookcases, Tien, Sze-Chin and Boon will re-discover their personal belongings encased between one and a half year to two and a half years.

This show is about a classification of objects with a measurable monetary exchange value and functional value, its shift towards a non-quantifiable sentimental value. It is also a presentation of documents, photographs, records of sojourn in London for 4 years respectively.

This show also alludes to passion and dilemmas of collecting. Walter Benjamin describes in Unpacking my Library: ‘…(Every) passion borders on the chaotic, but the collector’s passion borders on the chaos of memories’.

Please call Tel: (65) 9238 6609 or 9479 4908 for details. Catalogues only available from November 29.
