KNOCK IT DOWN: An Exhibition on National Service presents a unique view of Singapore’s conscription system, seen through the eyes of pop artist Dan Wong (A Good Citizen). Since 1967, the decision to enforce military conscription has shaped the fabric of our nation, forming a common experience shared amongst every Singaporean citizen — men and women alike.
A topic of hot debate and contention, National Service is seen both as a burden and a rite of passage, with portrayals in media ranging from disparaging views to acts of heroism, from coddled soldiers to tragic accidents.
This bittersweet duty that every Singaporean son must face is now presented in an honest and raw form by artists who have served the nation.
Featuring the works of A Good Citizen, street artist EBAO, comic artist Jerry Teo, and other citizens, KNOCK IT DOWN presents a tongue-in-cheek dialogue on national service often spoken about, but never seen before.
The opening launch for KNOCK IT DOWN will be held 31st of August, 7pm
Venue: Artblovk Gallery, 195 Pearls Hill Terrace, #03-05, Singapore 168976
When: 31 Aug - 24 Sep 2018, 12noon - 7pm Tue-Sat
