Dahlia is Filipino-artist Keb Cerda’s first solo exhibition in Singapore. The exhibition kicks off the start of Art Trek 13, an annual programme of the Embassy of the Philippines Singapore.
Cerda comes up with a new set of paintings and launches a new virtual game in his continuing exploration of integrating traditional art forms and new media, virtual reality, and gaming platforms. Following the success and breakthroughs in his earlier works, such as Collect All Coins and False Profits, he introduces Dahlia and takes us into a world of dark alleys and sinister parks, visualised dramatically under a blue and purple-tinted twilight. The game plays around notions of heightened and omnipresent surveillance in the technologically-dominated era, and works around these concepts through the classic contrast between light and dark but invigorated by the interactivity brought by mobile application. Dahlia is yet another social commentary among Cerda’s oeuvre incorporated with humour and fun-filled experience that transcends the boundaries of traditional painting.
