Found & Lost

There is no final image, only intersections and loose ends. There is no centre, only peripheral fictions and suggestions, multiplying and expanding towards a threshold found and lost.

Found & Lost features the works of eight Singapore artists concerned with questions of seeing and possibilities of drawing. The exhibition serves as an extension of the ideas explored in Aversions, a publication project in which the artists explore and respond to the boundaries of drawing within their own artistic practices, delving into issues such as peripheral vision, perpetual delay, the impossibility of the image, and the fragmentation of language and memory in relation to the act of drawing. As a parallel exhibition, Found & Lost continues along and beyond the initial line of enquiry into the nature of visual representation. Many of the works move between the act of observation (looking at) and that of introspection (looking for), proposing a correlation between the visible and the invisible in the way meaning is constantly being interrupted and negotiated by shifts in perception.
