This exhibition explores notions of intimacy and longing by focusing on the role of the written word in the conceptual practices of two Singapore-based female photographers – Liana Yang and Lavender Chang.
By manipulating new and traditional media, Liana upends contemporary notions of romance and courtship, provoking thought on the dynamics of relationships and our expressions of fondness. With projects often meant as open ended questionnaires, Taiwanese native Lavender integrates text in her works to probe at how people seek emotional anchorage in times of uncertainty and adversity.
Collectively, their works utilize text as a point of entry to interrogate the relationship between prose, visual and mental imagery, shedding light on unseen and unspoken yearnings.
