Bon á Tirer introduces the audience to the printmaking practices of 4 local artists, Chen Shitong, April Ng, Tan Seow Wei and Zhang Fuming. Bon á tirer, which in French means “good to pull” (or simply, “okay to print”), is a printmaker’s authorised trial proof that sets the approval for print and the quality to proceed for all other editions. With an exhibition title that embodies a playful reference to this professional term unique to the printmaker’s working process, the showcase is an eclectic mix of over 25 original prints by the 4 artists, including lithographs, woodcuts, collagraphs, etchings, mimeograph and silkscreen prints.
Beyond a mere presentation of works and concepts, the exhibition aims to highlight the respective artist’s printmaking approach, interest and technique, which is often multi-faceted and adventurous due to the wide range of techniques and surfaces available within the medium.
