By common definition, Eulogy (noun) is a speech or a piece of writing that praises someone or something highly, especially a tribute to someone (who has just died).
In this duo exhibition by Andree Weschler and Sabrina Koh, the whole work suggests an independent view from each artist, and another, where both settings meet.
This exhibition does not look towards the future – about what we want to have or who we want to meet. More fundamentally, it speaks about the lost pieces we once had and the ones we had met. The two artists will make tribute to the people and objects which they lost along their domestic journey, and perhaps in their own meeting point, to relive those settings in context of the other’s.
Sabrina Koh aims to reposition and (p)raise the relationships we build in a domestic setting; given or not. Through selected pieces of apparatus one would prepare for a eulogy. Andree Weschler is interested in giving her eulogy to the lost domesticate(d) objects that carry the journey of home stories.
The works are generated by the place here(Singapore). It is site-specific, confessional and very much locally inspired. In this proposed work, we thought about the ‘silent’ sent-offs of loved ones and objects, and have found that particularly inspiring and relevant to the roots in this metropolis home. From the spatial quality to the physicality of items we
revolve ourselves between the tangible and intangible, similarly to movements and moving in/out of the domestic HDB typology.
