A Thinking Street Photography Blog
This is an exhibition of Singaporean arts in London.
Singapore: Inside Out is a showcase of Singaporean art in Beijing, London and New York City. More info here.
There were lots of announcements like this on the walls at Brick Lane.
See – it’s here.
The cyclist got in the way.
Yet another cyclist.
That’s the Old Truman Brewery, converted into an arts and creative enterprises venue.
The neighbourhood is so arty that even unadorned walls have character.
At a café while waiting for the exhibition to open.
Performance art – I confess I don’t really get it. Red and white are the colours of Singapore’s flag.
He’s leaving smoke trails on the window … is this an ironic commentary on the ephemeral nature of Singapore’s national culture at an exhibition of Singaporean art?
The overall mood, partly because of the candles, is rather funereal.
That’s an installation on which the public is invited to scrawl/doodle.
The installation is still clean … the exhibition had just opened, after all.
There’s a … grass lawn exhibit.
This I understand – books on a shelf.
Fortunate placement of people.
That’s the Actors’ Tour, during which the monologues of various featured artists were performed.
There’s the mention of Singapore’s arts and culture policy, and a hint of self-conscious deprecation concerning state-sponsored art.
I fired off a few shots before realizing my DSLR might be a little bit loud and distracting… I switched to my more discreet Olympus XA2 (more in another post).
The performance art again – check out the funereal-looking candles.
Thanks for reading!
