Hues of Loss features all-new textile-based works by Singaporean artist Agatha ‘Agy’ Lee. The interactive exhibition was born out of Agy’s fascination with nature and concern for the increasing decline of coral reefs. Using thread, remnant textiles, and the traditional techniques of hand-stitching and free-motion embroidery, Agy brings to life the wonders of and perils experienced by coral today. Concerns about mankind’s rapid pace of consumption today also drive the artist’s use of remnant textiles in a bid to reduce waste in her art-making. Together with visual imagery and infographics from collaborator, Our Singapore Reefs, the exhibition inspires us to consider the conservation of coral reefs as a priority.
Accompanying the exhibition are talks and workshops.
