Re-THINGing Gesture in Contemporary Sculptural Practice presents new and recent works by nine Singaporean artists, Stephanie Jane Burt, Ezzam Rahman, Michael Lee, Vincent Leow, Lim Soo Ngee, Ivan David Ng, Sai (aka Chen Sai Hua Kuan), Grace Tan and Wang Ruobing. While gesture is often associated with the body, this exhibition features object and text-based works that signal a variety of conceptual and embodied meanings through form, content and medium. By foregrounding artistic processes, the works explore our connections to materiality and the quotidian, stemming from personal, social, historical and cultural associations, as well as methods of reception, production and consumption. Alongside the developing overlaps of sculpture and thingness, several works in the exhibition also sit at the interstices of painting, sound and conceptual practices to shed light on sculptural and three-dimensional practice today.
