Spotted! Ang Song Nian

Senja Road

Ang Song Nian creates photographs that confront what we usually do not notice, places and spaces half-remembered, half forgotten; influenced and shaped by human presence. By framing particular and ordinary elements, he invites the observer to read the image, to engage in a progressive process of understanding the individual elements it contains and the connections between them. Intrigued by the narration of thoughts and ideologies through visuals, has always favoured a microscopic approach to concepts and narration, a style which he always employs to open up details in photography.

Currently based in London, Song Nian’s work questions the relationship of human interventions and invasions on landscapes. His works have been exhibited as part of several major events such as the Singapore Art Exhibition 2009, Singapore Arts Show 2005, Phillip-Morris Singapore Arts Award 2005, Student Creative Awards Showcase 2003, and the Nanyang Technological University Arts Festival 2007.

Song Nian about his series, And Now, Like Sleeping Flowers…: “Mankind’s appetite for devouring all that is around, clouds our perspective as to what is being sacrificed for society. Little we see in Nature that is ours, that coexisting is the relationship envisioned. This relationship appears to be at the mercy of Man because of the fragility of Nature.This is a study of human presence and its invasion on Nature.”

Song Nian’s series is part of the ‘Of Forest, Sea and Mountain’ exhibition, which opened yesterday at the 2902 Gallery.
