Singapore Art Week 2022 @ Somerset

Pauline Wong


Event type: Exhibition and Workshop
Dates: 9 Jan -29 Jan 2022
Time: 10am – 10pm
Venue: *SCAPE #02-15 (Go to Google maps)

Through the mediums of analogue photography, cyanotype and placemaking, Compositing Negatives aims to showcase the tenacity of young people attempting to process these alternative times in alternative ways. The exhibition is a culmination of workshops and dialogues, highlighting the importance of working around unexpected circumstances by factoring these unexpected occurrences into their art. Through the unfamiliar art practices, these processes highlight the importance of slowing down and introspecting through new lenses. Through documenting these experiences, one also attempts at regaining control in these tumultuous, uncertain times.

Compositing Negatives is presented by artists-in-residence Annjee Teo and Pauline Wong, as part of the *SCAPE Community Arts Residency.
