Exhibition: Chaos. Peace. Love. This is Harmony

Opening tomorrow at the National Geographic Store at Vivo City is “Chaos. Peace. Love. This is Harmony”, an exhibition conceptualized and organized by Diploma in Arts Management students of LASALLE College of the Arts, as part of each graduation show.

The performance aspect of the exhibition features 3 young and talented budding artists from different social backgrounds – Melissa Tan, a Chinese ink painter, Peenut Lee, a lesbian illustrator and Valerie Yang, a tattoo artist. In bridging a connection between artists and audiences, the artists will execute their skills and techniques to a countdown of two hours to signify their endless struggles in pursuit of their art. This exhibition is more than just an exhibition, but a voice to channel artists’ emotions and sacrifices made in their undying passion for their works against societal values. The show encompasses a ‘live’ art performance and a week-long exhibition, motivated by the frustrations and isolation that many artists faced because of certain stereotypical mindsets and because of the negative misconceptions that had been placed upon various forms art forms.

A relative odd combination of Tattoo, Chinese ink, oil, pen and print‐making, this collision challenges traditional versus contemporary styles with Asian and western influences to dare audiences critically decide and analyze. As tattoo art is juxtaposed with two very different other forms of art that are more “acceptable” in society’s eyes can these forms can co‐exist together, when viewed from an aesthetic appreciation angle. In addition, audiences can catch a glimpse of print series by Korean guest artist, printmaker Shin‐Young Park.

4 – 11 March at the National Geographic Store at Vivo City. Opening “live art” exhibition: 4th march 2011, 7.30pm-9.30pm.
