Currently on view at the Wheelock Gallery is Loh Chew Min‘s “Literal Non-Transactional Shopping Experience” – a sculptural installation that retraces our urban oversight of common stairs and elevators, and ordains them as pure visual pleasures. In reducing them to their cognitive essentials in line form, she temporarily suspends functional utility to aestheticize their structural integrity.

Chew Min recently graduated from LaSalle College of the Arts’ Masters in Fine Arts program, and has a Bachelors degree from Kent Institute of Art and Design in the UK. About her installation: “Elevators and stairs are urban essentials to the high-rise commuter. We seek them out and appreciate them for the necessary conveniences they assure; indeed, they may be said to regulate the rhythm and tempo of our urban experience. But how often do we really look at them?”

The exhibition continues through 15 March at the Wheelock Art Gallery, 6 Scotts Road .
