Sullivan + Strumpf Presents "Flat"
Sullivan and Strumpf Gallery in Singapore is excited to present its first virtual group exhibition, curated by Louis Ho, which can be accessed here with this link. The exhibition features works by 11 contemporary Singapore artists, mostly emerging - such as Fazleen Karlan, Daniel Chong, and Genevieve Leong.
As described by Louis, ‘flat’ is a two-dimensional simulacrum of a three-dimensional space. The aesthetics of this exhibition not only reflect the tenor of life during the lockdown, but also its material conditions of production, shared by many artists, who were cut off from the full range of available resources while the circuit breaker was in effect.
"A quick few thoughts on this exhibition: this is a pretty flat show. There’s zero spectacle, most of the works are small-ish, contained, neatly put together. The protracted monotony and ennui and claustrophobia of the past two months in Singapore, and the underlying gloom and anxiety, went into its making, both for myself and - I’m sure - the artists. The trope of flatness is layered, from concept (deadened sentiments) to medium (the approximation of two-dimensionality) to layout (lines grids, squares) to experience (virtual space on a screen)." - Louis Ho
In their newly designed viewing room, you can access the virtual exhibition walkthrough and listen to their latest podcast featuring Louis Ho and Jeremy Sharma. They are also sharing a playlist curated by Jeremy Sharma!
