Closed on Sunday & Public Holidays

The first solo exhibition by Thai artist, Tawan Wattuya, in Singapore presented by Hatch Art Project invites viewers to contemplate on the state of humanity and the role of art in imagining possibilities for liberation. The exhibition will feature a selection of Tawan's watercolour paintings that reveal his perspectives on global socio-political issues and personal reflections on humanity.

Through the vivid depiction of various human figures ranging from political figures, pop culture icons, soldiers, extremists, and sex workers painted in groups and as individuals, Tawan’s paintings invites viewers to contemplate a range of interconnected contemporary issues of violence, terror, and representation. By choosing to paint these controversial and provocative figures, Tawan also highlights the diversity of people and opinions exist and influence the state of global politics today.

Curator, Hatch Art Project, Sue Oh, asserts the importance of communities of people, or what Antonio Negri terms as the ‘multitude’, in asserting change within contemporary society today. Whilst the exhibition presents a diversity of controversial figures linked to several problematic societal issues around the world, it is evident that they are interconnected, and that global conflicts are affected by regional politics. Thus, the need to recognise that “problems are shared and we must take joint steps to counter ruthless individualism”.

I Would Prefer Not To Do Anything by Hatch Art Project is Indonesian artist Iqi Qoror's second solo exhibition in Singapore. His melancholic yet visually eccentric paintings capture our deep-rooted fatigue living in today's fluctuating digital society.

Curated by Sue Oh, the exhibition provides an intimate look into this state of burnout exacerbated by the overwhelming culture of positivity.

As part of the gallery's efforts to find new and different ways of presenting written content, the exhibition catalogue is essentially a picture book for adults with an original story written by Singaporean cultural critic Reena Devi. The wall text will also be in literary form commenting on 21st century societal fatigue.

What does it really mean to be human? Does being human involve  engaging with materials, technologies or information networks? Has there ever been a time when the human being lived and functioned entirely on its own? What does it mean to be human in the 21st century and beyond? Is posthumanism part of this future?

Part of Singapore Art Week 2019,  the exhibition More than Human World: A Wake-up Call from Posthuman invites you to consider these questions while experiencing art that dares to engage in 21st century discourse.   

Through diverse works by 9 artists from South East Asia, Singapore and Korea, this exhibition explores relevant themes including new technologies, artificial intelligence and posthumansim.

Deciphering Clothes: The Troublemakers’ Wardrobe

Opening date : 15 November 2018
Guest registration : 7:00pm
Opening reception with Aliens of Manila Performance : 15 November 2018, 7: 30pm
Mask-Making Workshop : 8 pm

Exhibition period : 15 November 2018 – 12 January 2019
Opening hours : Monday - Friday, 1030 am to 7pm
Saturday -12 pm to 4 pm
Closed on Sunday & Public Holidays

The twelve emerging Asian artists exhibited here invite guests to view their wardrobes. The observer might find themselves feeling uncomfortable, embarrassed, or report an unpleasant experience, since some pieces are distorted, overly exaggerated or reveal (private) body parts in an unusual way. What makes us feel uncomfortable when we encounter the work shown here? Why do we feel strange? Is it because the works deviate from our expectations of how ordinary people dress? Who are these ordinary people and what do they wear in their daily lives?

These artists who are contributing to Deciphering clothes: The Troublemaker’s Wardrobe have chosen to focus on groups of people considered trouble makers by society, due to their willingness to declare themselves as queer artists, questioning gender categories and their place on the spectrum from feminine to masculine.

Artistic practice acknowledges that dressing can serve as camouflage, such that biological men dressing in women’s clothes or vice versa highlights those characteristics of women or men that have been formulated and naturalized by society. The artists here question femininity and masculinity by mimicking it in an exaggerated or preposterous way, as by depicting oneself as having an uncategorized gender that deviates from gender norms - revealing the illusion of gender binary by suggesting its power and normativity is a fiction.

 

GALLERY CLOSURE FOR UPCOMING DECIPHERING CLOTHES EXHIBITION 

We will be closed from Saturday, 10 November 2018 to Wednesday, 14 November 2018 to prepare for our third exhibition.  Deciphering Clothes: Troublemakers’ Wardrobe will open on Thursday, 15 November 2018 and runs till Friday, 12 January 2019.

Deciphering DWELLING: HOME IS WHERE THE ___ IS

Opening reception: 26 September 2018, 6 pm
Soap-making Workshop: 26 September 2018, 7 pm
Exhibition period: 26 September – 30 October 2018
Opening hours: 1030 am to 7pm (Mondays to Fridays), 12 pm to 4 pm (Saturdays)

Hatch Art Project inaugurated its first exhibition series with its second instalment, titled Deciphering Dwellings: Home is Where the ___ is.

Home is generally accompanied by powerful emotional bonds that engage us with a sense of nostalgic, almost mythical vision. A nostalgic understanding of home is a homogenous, peaceful, safe, and secure. A home allows people to be integrated within a meaningful and all-embracing structure through social and physical solidarity.

Thus, the common expression goes ‘Home is where the heart is.’ However, there are other considerations when thinking of home. The eight emerging Southeast Asian artists in this exhibition suggest how a home is lived and experienced by people as a place.

They are: Azizul Nasir (b. 1991, Malaysia) Bitto (b. 1987, Philippines) Eko Bambang Wisnu (b. 1985, Indonesia) Issay Rodriguez (b. 1991, Philippines) Limhay Chhum (b. 1996. Cambodia) Ngoc Nau (b. 1989, Vietnam) Thong Yoong Onn (b. 1995, Malaysia) Tuan Mami (b. 1981, Vietnam)

Gallery CLOSURE For upcoming DECIPHERING DWELLING exhibition 

We will be closed from Friday, 17 August 2018 to Monday, 27 August 2018 to prepare for our second exhibition.  Deciphering Dwelling: Home is where the ____________ is will open on Tuesday, 28 August 2018 and runs till Tuesday, 23 October 2018.

Press Luncheon - 4 June 2018
RIJSTTAFEL: FLAMBOYANT TABLE BY ELIA NURVISTA AND MONIKA SWASTYASTU

Rijsttafel (rice on the table) is a legacy of the Dutch colonial ways of eating in Indonesia. It is deeply rooted with the reminder of its history of feudalism, labourer, power, inferiority and nationalism.

For a Dutch colonist, the Rijsttafel embodied in the East Indies which was the jewel in the crown of the Dutch Empire. The length and breadth of their colonial holdings arrayed on a single table, like culinary tribute from the natives which also depicted the power as superior ruling class.

By presenting the performances and a sprawling banquet table featuring “rice in the table”, we will experience and re-question our eating culture in the context of Eastern civilization and behaviour.

This performance is created by Elia Nurvista during her residency process in Delfina Foundation, London, UK (2013) and will be conducted by Monika Swastyastu, the member of Bakudapan Food Study Group.
