Contemporary ink artist Lim Choon Jin presents his solo exhibition “Interventions and Contemporary Ink” at Visual Arts Centre.
An artwork may have the ability to connect to its viewer through the persuasion of mental or emotional relevance. This connection is created by the artist based on his own purpose and objectives.
What happens when the viewers become the catalysts of the artist’s creative process? By engaging in a shared conversation with an intended audience, will this experience push the artist to create new styles and forms?
These are the questions that form the basis of “Interventions and Contemporary Ink”.
Curated by Vincent Lin, the theme for this exhibition is inspired by his own observations on how conversations or shared experiences can affect a person’s behaviour and perceptions. Artist Lim Choon Jin have also conducted a 3-month field research involving a selected group of audiences and the artist, where audiences were assigned to interact with the artist through a series of interventions which are defined by shared conversations or offering brush strokes to an artwork. Results of these research-based interactions present themselves in 36 new works that will be on display at the exhibition.
Vincent Lin believes that the social gatherings, jovial banter and deep conversations that the artists share influence the artists directly and these influences can be seen in their creations.
Admission to the exhibition is free.
