In Bandung, Selasar Sunaryo presents Mountain Pass: Negotiating Ambivalence, a solo exhibition from Zen Teh, presented as a result of his 2-months residency in Bandung. Supported by the Singapore National Arts Council and Mizuma Gallery in Singapore, Zen Teh utilised her time in the residency to investigate the relationship between nature and human behavior. The exhibition presents artworks that represent human’s excessive consumption in the context of urban development. These include rocks that Zen Teh gathered at various constructions sites in Bandung that she assembled into a sculpture and imprinted some of the rocks’ surfaces with photographic images of nature and environment.
