Islandwide Coverage is a multi-venue, multi-authored project that explores the infrastructural networks and environments of everyday life through artistic interventions into the machinations and mechanisms of various commuting and non-commuting vehicles.
AWKNDAFFR (initiated in 2018) is an artistic operation situated at the intersections of art, theory, and praxis. The operative logic of AWKNDAFFR revolves around relationality, agency, and cooperation between peoples and practices, through different modes of gathering/s. Its first interpellation was A Weekend Affair (2019), a two-day symposium-festival at a chalet in Changi, Singapore, and more recently, in book form through the edited anthology Can, Cannot, and Other Options (2021). It has also manifested in a string of short and long-term affairs, independently and through participation in local residencies with LASALLE College of the Arts (2019) and The Substation (2020–21).
Wayne Lim is a visual art practitioner who makes psycho-sensorial works relating to the everyday. He studies and is fascinated by the arrangements of the logics of aesthetics, economy, and ideology. He has shown in Greece, Japan, the Netherlands, Russia, Singapore and the UK, as well as participated in residencies in Chiangmai, Thailand (2012), Istanbul, Turkey (2015), Biella, Italy (2016), Romainmôtier, Switzerland (2017), and most recently in Singapore (2021). In 2018, he co-initiated AWKNDAFFR, an artistic operation from where he would think and strive beyond the conventional notions of aesthetics and relationality. Wayne graduated in 2017, from the Dutch Art Institute in the Netherlands.
Soh Kay Min’s practice weaves between the interstices of semiotics, theory, and fiction, towards emergent modes other-worlding through queering and reorganising. In another life, they are Research Associate at NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore. Recent curatorial engagements include the 17th Istanbul Biennial (2022), which reimagines the biennial as a site of compost, and in 2018, they co-initiated the artistic operation AWKNDAFFR. They graduated with a BSc in Anthropology from University College London (UCL) in 2016, and MA in Contemporary Art Theory at Goldsmiths College, University of London, in 2017.
