WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE - Exhibition @Yokohama 2013
Southeast Asia’s economy isn’t the only thing that’s booming at the moment: this timely exhibition delves into the collection of the Singapore Art Museum to reveal the region’s thriving contemporary art scene. Welcome to the Jungle presents a total of 28 works by artists from eight different countries – Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam and Myanmar – and covering a range of media. Notable pieces include Singaporean artist Zai Kuning's films of the lives of nomadic sea people, Filipino photographer Frank Callaghan's pictures of brightly illuminated jungles, and Malaysian-Chinese artist Chang Yoong Chia's series of painstakingly painted ceramic spoons.
