"'A new plan for the city has been drawn up, in black and white. The civil servant leaves his office at the end of the day and locks up. Left alone, his symbols had other ideas.' (Jason Wee)
Jason Wee's first solo exhibition in almost three years - Master Plan - is a powerful culmination of the artist's architectural research at Harvard University. Wee's studies in architecture have evoked personal consideration of scale within a city's 'master plan', which in turn has led the artist to conceive the exhibition's installation, an abstract model of a city but one with a menacing and slightly melancholic blueprint. The grey geometric shapes Wee employs for the high-density buildings will be familiar to viewers of the School show at Singapore Art Museum at 8Q (2008) and the commanding grey palette is one that has followed the artist, not only in his physical workspace, but deliberately through his own series of artworks. The installation includes over 300 individual elements. This is the first time images from this series are available as prints."
