Bad Imitation is an exhibition that deliberately occupies this blurry threshold between copy and original. Moving beyond discourses of authenticity and faithfulness, it instead frames this threshold as a generative space of difference. Across the diverse practices of Ashley Hi, Catherine Hu, Daniel Chong, Khairullah Rahim x Nghia Phung, Michael Lee, Moses Tan, and Pat Toh, the exhibition presents imitations that are imprecise, flawed, and intentionally adjacent to the original. Be it objects, gestures, or images, these attempts at (re)production keep the original alive, yet firmly in their shadow.
