Eternity, a comtemporary art photography exhibition
Site Specific Photographs by Chua Chye Teck
"As long as intimacy goes on, so will Eternity." - Calvin Klein.
The basis for this exhibition stems from the invitation to a Singaporean artist to record the run-down motorcycle shop, and brothel, conservation shop-house numbers 107+109 Rowell Road before it is transformed by the owner and resident curatorial team p-10 into an exhibition space, studio, office and café. The result is 9 selective framed photographic images of second floor cubicle partitions, yearning the viewers to piece together their imagination of the cram conditions for intimacy, in comparison with the present retrofits of an independent art space.
About the artist
Chua was recently awarded a fellowship for an artist residency in Newcastle, UK, dealing in photography under the auspices of the International Photography Research Network (IPRN), and endorsed by the National Arts Council, Singapore in 2007.
This is his first solo exhibition since his return.
Do join us to understand how a contemporary visual artist approaches the medium of photography and this exhibition's site specificity. Post-museum, the gallery showing Chua's works, was featured in the Straits Time's Life! as an up and coming art space in Little India.
20 Dec (evening) - 13 Jan 08
Opening hours: 6-10pm (Tue-Fri) and 12-10pm (Sat+Sun).
