Yeo Workshop is pleased to announce Post-Museum’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, Food, Lions, and Zombies. The exhibition features works being shown together for the first time. It also includes previously unexhibited works of The Bali Project by The Artist Village, which both founders of Post-Museum are members of.
Being shown as a solo exhibition in a private art gallery for the first time, Food, Lions, and Zombies pertains to what sustains us, our dreams, and what refuses to die. The title of the exhibition encapsulates the collective’s practice and the works they are showing. The exhibition traces the collective’s works and projects, from their early beginnings before they were formally established up until now.
Iconic works are carefully selected to showcase various milestones in the development of the collective’s artistic practice over the years. The works are curated and installed such that each piece ‘bleeds’ into the other; similar to their artistic practice where they merge art, life, the social, the political, and the personal.
Post-Museum produced many notable works exploring concepts about the city, and urban legends as methods by which they describe and provide fluid elusive definitions of “place”. Their work “Bukit Brown Index” (2014-) used hauntings and myths to provide a textured reading of contested places in Singapore. They have engaged with various important Singaporean artists and individuals in these projects.
While Food, Lions, and Zombies foregrounds Post-Museum’s cultural activist and archival projects, Post-Museum has a diverse and multi-faceted practice, that goes beyond their socio-political projects. Their collaborative work with The Artists Village, The Bali Project rethinks art historical narratives in Singapore. The project recreates and reinterprets well-known paintings by the pioneer Nanyang Artists and the Nanyang Style.
