‘Now & Then' A collaboration project executed by Yeo Shih Yun and Tay Bee Aye

‘Now & Then' – An exhibition of silk-screen prints and photo-transfer & video installation by local artists Tay Bee Aye and Yeo Shih Yun will open at the new art space instinc, located at 271C New Bridge Road, from 29 April 2005 to 25 May 2005.
It was through an old bus ticket that the concept of this exhibition was conceived. The progress of change, like the old bus ticket and ezlink card, is significant to our nation building. This transformation has fascinated us.
Our nation building has indicated the progress of our changing landscape, like the increasing road signs and new street names in new estates. On the other hand, some old street names are removed completely.
Singapore’s landscape has undergone massive transformation over the past four decades. The transition of renewal, disappearance and addition of street names demonstrated how our identity is being built from the colonial era (Queenstown, Victoria Street) to a city of racial harmony consciousness, by using neutral street names rather than Malay or hanyu pinyin names.
Changes are inevitable. Many of our childhood memories of things, places, and scenes no longer exist today. They are permanently gone and unrecoverable. What are left are fragmented memories. With this goal of recapitulating the past memories and new, the two artists transform this space into a journey shared by them and others who lived here in this exhibition, 'Now & Then.'

There will be an installation of 20 prints on paper (silk-screen, photo transfer) together with prototype of street names and signs. There is also an interactive map for the audience to participate.
Markers, oil pastel, sticker, photo etc, will be provided to allow viewer to add and delete information to transform it to the current landscape, or the imaginative future landscape. Thus, the piece is a piece that is always in state of work-in-progress till the last day of the exhibition.
In addition, a video installation of journey traveled while on the MRT, a type of transportation commuted by Bee Aye and Shih Yun frequently will also be exhibited.
