About the event
Conceptual art is one form that leaves many of us tilting our heads, often in perplexity, as it pushes the boundaries of that visual experience. It compels the viewer to shift the focus away from the object, and moves you to consider the themes, and its staged inference. The role of the artist then changes from becoming a creator, to a presenter, or a medium. It is in this transition that conceptual art encourages us to reconsider our own understanding of art, its experience and boundaries.
We are pleased to introduce Annie Cabigting for the ﬁrst time in Singapore, who leads us into a fresh re-encounter of notable Western art. We are invited to an intellectual inquiry of the aesthetics and to re-experience the ideas presented in her rendition of contemporary works from various conceptual artists alike. Ironically, we also seem to come to full circle as Cabigting’s resolute is to present her works as if they were impartial photographs, yet rendered through the traditional technique of painting – the same technique that conceptual art purists purports not to practise. Mutating Truths is thought provoking - and an exercise of recreating truths for ourselves.
