Showcasing artists based in Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Sydney and the Philippines, Playing with Paper: Intimacies and Possibilities explores how the participating artists portray profound intimacies and vast possibilities on paper, that are both specific to their contexts, yet simultaneously transcend boundaries across time, techniques, traditions and geographies. The show hopes to spark a conversation on how paper can serve as a vital entry point into illuminating invisible threads across modern and contemporary art in Southeast Asia. Because of their relatively small scale, the works on display are bonded by an intimacy akin to what is found in the private sketchbooks of artists, while they simultaneously express infinite possibilities in form, style and content—not in spite of the material of paper, but because of it.
