A group show by Bart was not Here, Victor Paul Brang Tun, Thu Myat, Indra Kamerling, Hélène Le Chatelier, Marleen Inia
Like the previous “pot-pourri” exhibitions organized by Intersections in 2017 & 2018, this show encompasses various mediums and styles: acrylic on canvas, ink on paper, ceramics, black and white as well as very colourful artworks. Although apparently disconnected, the artworks have in common to express the soul of the neighbourhood and the mood of local artists.
Bart Was not Here is inspired by “escapism” which is a wide spread mood in the young generations. A great fan of science fiction, Thu Myat represents the encounter of artificial intelligence and street art. I am Art, a painting by Victor Paul Brang Tun, is inspired by the launch party of Art Stage 2019, which was eventually cancelled. With unreadable writings, Hélène Le Chatelier refers to the loss of memory in our modern globalized world. Moreover, for Hélène “the more we dig into our memory, the more it looks like a mountain to climb”. Marleen Inia continues her series of Strong Women, which she started in Africa, with portraits of Strong Women from Bali. Last but not least, Indra Kamerling uses ceramics and mixed mediums to reflect the complex multicultural society of Singapore with its diverse layers and elements.
