Cuturi Gallery is delighted to present Crooners, a solo exhibition by Singaporean artist Faris Heizer (b. 1998, Singapore). In this new series of works, Heizer spotlights the familiar figure of the salaried professional in his intimate moments that often go unnoticed or overlooked in the public eye. Spanning scenes of a white-collar world after dusk, Heizer continues his sustained investigation into the social organisation of our contemporary society.
A play on our affective registers, Crooners gives form to the lower frequencies underscored in the everyday life of the white-collar worker. It follows Heizer’s negotiation with the portrayal of masculinity and its affinities with capitalism, epitomised by the salaryman. Here, his figures are captured in unguarded intervals of vulnerability and obliviousness—mid-conversation with friends; people-watching in a bar; or sprawled out after a night of one too many.
