In this second edition of TPM Guest Curator series, Zaki Razak brings about a group exhibition featuring works of printmaking in different mediums by seven artists alike; Miguel Chew, Weixin Chong, Mona Choo, Urich Lau, Nadia Oh, Shin-Young Park and Shih Yun Yeo. The Guest Curator Series aims to facilitate and support independent and experimental curatorial practice, as well as to present different perspectives on our world.
It is a relative norm for printmaking exhibitions to focus on traditional methods and the expanded practice of artists who adopted painterly approaches, exploring a certain degree of experimentation, challenging the convention on what is permissible, and demonstrating sophisticated control of process.
In Repeat, Repeat, Repeat; revising the phenomenon of printing, the various artists revisit and redefine the history of printing by exploring an array of techniques and elements, covering a wide spectrum of topics such as urban culture in the digital age, science and spirituality, robotics and ink, as well as biblical art.
The artists’ visual responses in forms and formation are meant to be symbolic visual cues to the journey of printing towards a knowledgeable ascent – to bring a certain degree of consciousness, what was before and after the invention of the Gutenberg printing machine, and how the printed matter has changed or affected the human condition. With the various forms of print presentation and medium, the artists redefine the phenomenon of printing and imprint into one’s mind a fresh perspective.
