In collaboration with Archifest 2017, Grey Projects presents two exhibitions: Making Shadows by Moses Tan and Migrant Art, a sequence of photographs by migrant workers.
Making Shadows by Moses Tan
Moses Tan explores the claims on the built environment and public spaces through the eyes of a much-discriminated group. Moses Tan conceived an installation that could facilitate cruising, the set of unspoken physical movements and signs that form the vocabulary of private communication across public space. Using partition walls, the installation is an imagination of an interior space that could facilitate looking. Slits are cut out amidst a maze-like interior with works placed amongst the space to guide the viewer to be viewed. The space itself is inspired by configurations of bookstores, parks as well as toilet facilities. The installation itself includes a suite of drawings and video works. Shadows of trees on ground, empty bottles and backpack in public toilets and close-up of individuals form the images that can be seen within the installation.
Migrant Art: Selected and curated by Jason Wee, William Phuan, and Alex Au
Originally conceived by William Phuan, co-founder of The Select Centre, as a book, Migrant Art is a sequence of photographs documenting the lives of migrant workers by the workers themselves.
