A Scene From A Memory – "A Scene from a Memory" is set to be an unforgettable stamp of the Korean contemporary art scene in Singapore. With a roster of 16 internationally exhibited artists who have redefined the concept of scenery in their individual styles, the exhibition will showcase a unique, unexpected, and pleasantly surprising array of artworks that will transform how the audience perceive nature and their surroundings.
From Jung Kwang Sik’s aerial view of landscape carved on black granite to Lee Lee Nam’s moving paintings on LED screens, and from Park Seung Mo’s clever layering of individually cut steel mesh to Bahk Seon Ghi’s floating charcoal pieces, the exhibition seeks to explore the boundless representations of sceneries and the objects that constitute them. In the end, it is when the viewer interacts with the scenery that the real representation begins.

Perdido Eden – Perdido Eden (Lost Eden) is a group exhibition featuring 13 emerging Filipino artists. Curated by Isabel Ching, it looks at the complex narratives of identity, country, and home.
What if, while in Singapore, we turn our eyes around, our pupils to the backs of our sockets; where would we be? Would it be Manila and its hodgepodge urban landscape that we see? Peering through a looking glass in Manila, would we find ourselves in Singapore, the city of gardens that Manila could have been, the lost Eden? In 1896, Philippine national hero José Rizal bid his final farewell before his execution with an untitled poem written in Spanish and smuggled out of prison. Later named "Mi último adiós" (My Last Farewell), the words nuestro perdido Eden (our Eden lost) in the first stanza imagine an originary homeland that one yearns to recover, a utopia that has been lost. 13 emerging Philippine artists based in Metro Manila point towards something beyond to be accessed that is vast and myriad, connecting the here with the there or the elsewhere, together weaving a necessarily uneven and complex narrative of home, country and memory.
