Everything You Ever Wanted is Right Here
Everything You Ever Wanted Is Right Here features a new series of handcrafted photographic and typography-based collages by one of Singapore’s most prominent and adored contemporary artists, Dawn Ng. The works are a tongue-in-cheek, visual documentary of present day Singapore, compiled over a four-month period utilising photojournalism and interviews with locals.
By slicing phrases through large-scale photographs, the resulting collages expose the cultural sentiments beneath one the world’s most highly case-studied cities as it tells the ongoing story of a country “in-the-making”. The juxtaposition of image and text sets up a visual peek-a-boo, revealing hidden socio-commentaries on the tensions, idiosyncrasies, and hopes unique to Singapore.
Dealing with everything from the poignant to the irreverent, Everything You Ever Wanted Is Right Here is core to Ng’s obsession with the notion of home, identity, and belonging.
The exhibition will be on display from 7th to 24th September 2012
