The Private Museum is proud to present Void and Void Decks, the inaugural collaboration between two Singaporean artists Chow Chee Yong and Tang Ling Nah. Coming from their respective backgrounds, the two artists cross paths for the first time in their research practices and choices of media. Chow attempts to capture the intangible and temporal 3rd space in his photographs with a single shot, without further manipulation. On the other hand, Tang suggests the extension of space through her charcoal drawings of passages and openings. The highlight of this exhibition is the new collaborative work by Chow and Tang, which blurs the line between drawing and photography, real and imaginary. Come join us and rediscover our often-neglected surroundings through these artworks. Void and Void Decks: Chow Chee Yong & Tang Ling Nah begins on 3rd August through 30th September at The Private Museum Ltd 51 Waterloo Street #02-06.
