Beyond the fair in January, Art Stage Singapore brings you exciting contemporary art events throughout the year. Working in tandem with local communities in Singapore and the region, the flagship art fair of Southeast Asia cultivates interest in and understanding of Southeast Asian contemporary art, through these special events. From 25th to 26th July 2015, Art Stage Singapore proudly presents a participatory performance art piece, Catharsis, by Indonesian artist Syagini Ratna Wulan, in support of Gillman Barracks.
Taking place in an empty gallery space, the artist has created a written diagram of texts ranging from ‘belief’ to ‘institution’ on the wall. Visitors are provided plates and invited to write a word on them before throwing the plates against the wall, taking aim at a word that resonates with them. Through this act of release, Catharsis aims to incite a sense of purification and cleansing of oneself.
Artist Syagini Ratna Wulan will also be present to share and discuss her artistic concept and motivations behind Catharsis.
This event is supported by Mizuma Gallery and Gillman Barracks.
