Weekly Picks: Singapore (2 – 8 July 2018)

PRESS GANG by Wild Rice 5 – 15 July 2018

Press Gang is a play presented by Wild Rice as part of the Singapore Theatre Festival. The play brings us into a newsroom that is full of crisis, from a new rumour that is emerging to a battle between power and truth. The play also reveals the process of the not-so-free press. Press Gang is written by former journalist Tan Tarn How, a playwright who has created a few of Singapore’s political satires such as Fear of Writing. The performance will be interpreted in Singapore Sign Language for one of the performance timings.

As part of the Singapore Theatre Festival, this new work that is altogether funny, tense and insightful also asks questions regarding privacy and dignity. But ultimately, the question of where does the boundary lies when it comes to strangers and what can happen when the lines are trespassed?

Irfan Hendrian SANS ☒  by Sullivan+Strumpf Singapore 7 Jul – 12 Aug 2018

“SANS” (understood without) followed by the symbol “☒ ” is used to describe an absence of representation. Irfan Hendrian believes that by composing a visual arrangement of objects, he can achieve a certain aesthetic value. In this exhibition, Irfan Hendrian explores the non-objective practice that operates beyond the finite nature of representation that can extend to many possibilities of perceptual and imaginative experiences.  This exhibition will showcase a particular aesthetic experience; foreign and strange, but equally playful while Hendrian brings us into a peculiar imaginary space.

Lucky Show is a solo-collective presentation by three artists for seven days that seeks to invent possible artistic relations within an alternative paradigm. The show’s title refers to the site of the showcase in Lucky Plaza where the three artists have to present their artworks while culminating in an informal gathering of artworks. The show also loosely models after the unconventional nonwhite cube spaces. With a range of media and sculptural forms, the three artists will conceptualise artworks that feature an exploration of different practices in this solo-collective.
