Incandescence (2016) by Lyn Low
The Mountain Survey (2016) by Marvin Tang
(from the press release)
“How will you go about finding that thing the nature of which is unknown to you?” (Plato)
Through being lost, two young artists embarked on a journey in search for the unknown. Shedding identities to become fully present, boundaries begin to fade away.
Mountain and Expanse is an exhibition that questions the height of knowledge and an exploration of the unmarked expanse to propose that the world that we think we know is larger than our knowledge of it.
Taking on photography as a medium of focus, this exhibition showcases the works of two artists Marvin Tang and Lyn Low – the winners of the Kwek Leng Joo Prize for Excellence in Still Photography 2015. Initiated in 2009, the award was established to recognise photographic excellence among students at NTU’s School of Art, Design and Media.
The exhibition runs from 28 May to 12 June at DECK. Artist Talk & Tour on 4 June, 3:30pm – 4:30pm.
