Project Plug: Progress for Progress’s Sake

We spotted Shen Jiaqi‘s work at uh:Art,  an exhibition showcasing the work of 14 NIE BA students. Progress for Progress’s Sake is a reflection of Jiaqi’s experience in the Singapore Education system both as a student and a teacher. “As an artist and educator, my works explore the complexity and fragility of humanity by revealing layers that we have chosen to conceal and questioning issues that we had chosen to disregard.”

“Using the imagery of the medieval rose window, my installation draws on how success and progress through education is often a lofty ideal, whereas isolation through discrimination and fear of association with failure is ever-present in our society. This installation is an immersive experience, and visitors are welcome to complete the artwork by sitting on the student’s chair.”
