“As much as Wattuya tries to forget, the need to remember remains understandably urgent. The continuous interrogation of the past in light of present-day concerns remains a profound moral issue for the artist. “Thailand has too many soldiers; they are not used to fight the enemy, but its own people,” says Wattuya. “Why have we become so dark and cold, so murderous and cruel?”

From Christine Han

The advance of technology and innovation and its applications are constant in every aspect of our life. In art, technological applications are responsible for fresh and singular artistic voices. The exhibition entitled More Than Human World: A Wake-Up Call from Posthuman celebrates the beauty of technology and highlights its subversive reality in contemporary life.

We’ll be the first to admit that sometimes, getting out of bed is hard. Knowing the only thing ahead of you is another seemingly endless day of work that will just blend right back into a sleepless night, before the cycle starts all over again, is hardly motivation. Sometimes, you’d just rather not do anything.

And so would Iqi Qoror. Moody paintings in tow, the Indonesian visual artist goes straight to the point with his second solo exhibition in Singapore—titled ‘I Would Prefer Not To Do Anything’. Brother, we feel you.

The use of digital technology in art is not a new phenomenon. Art produced through computer software programmes can be said to have originated as far back as the 1960s. By the 1990s, artists such as Roy Ascott had delved into the world of interactive art using the internet and digital tools such as e-mail and mobile phones. Ascott for example coined the term “telematic” art, which according to the Tate, “focused on the human aspect of the medium, the desire to communicate with another even in the virtual world, and how this (notion) is central to the creation of the medium.”

From: Ocula Report

Launched in 2018, Hatch Art Project is a gallery at the heart of the CBD that is dedicated to the practices of young artists from Singapore and the region. For More Than Human World: A Wake-up Call from Posthuman, nine artists—including Naufal Abshar, Seungpyo Hong, and Abshar Platisza—contemplate artificial intelligence and new technologies through a vibrant mix of media. These include The Organic Machine (Disaster Series) (2018) by Aditya Chandra H., a pencil acrylic on canvas depiction of drawn vascular forms that emit plumes of smoke across a background in varying shades of pink and red. Urich Lau's digital photos on aluminium, Dreamscape: City Hall Singapore and Dreamscape: Victoria Harbour Hong Kong (both 2018), depict two otherwise mundane photographs of cityscapes in acrid colours and containing hallucinogenic forms. Lau's images are a result of their processing through DeepDream, a programme that allows for patterns in images to be found and enhanced through algorithmic pareidolia, in which machines seek out patterns where they might not be immediately discernible.

'In Love' by Norah Lea is an important showcase, which quite possibly normalises transgender identity through a series of self-portraits created with her collaborator Nicolas Ow. The exhibition was art directed by Diva Agar. On our record, this is one of the best shows accomplished in 2018.

Filipino artist Leeroy New transforms people into otherworldly beings to send a message.

Imagine you’re waiting for the bus and a near-naked human body decked out in layers of plastic tubes, with a face covered in spikes, ambles past you. Freakily enough, it's something that happens in Manila.

People who do not conform to gender stereotypes are characterised as ‘troublemakers’, or ‘queer’.  The term queer has been used to refer to sexual orientation and gender minorities identified as neither heterosexual or cisgender. The original definition of queer was ‘strange’ or ‘peculiar’, ‘trouble’, but has increasingly been adopted to describe non-normative identities. These words often suggest negative associations such as problems, or the presence of a disorder, or difficulty. They are also used when socially accepted/agreed rules or norms are contravened. This leads us to question what socially accepted norms or social customs are. Is it possible to define them? If so, are there tangible guidelines to differentiate socially acceptable behavior from that which is not?

We’re seeing a change in the tides in 2018. Where non-conformity to gender stereotypes once garnered disgust, a newfound appreciation for queer culture has steered pop culture in the new millennium in a much more positive direction.

But the well-tailored men of Queer Eye still sit on the safer end of the spectrum (irony, right?)

Beyond the sharp suits donned by confidently out individuals, or even the elaborate costumes of RuPaul’s Drag Race, a whole universe of non-binary dressing and fashion exists.

Instead of lunch at Food Garden, how about fine art?

It can only be a good thing that an art gallery would open somewhere as obscure as Asia Square. In an area where mindless money-making presides over everything else, a dab of culture can’t hurt anyone. The all-new Hatch Art Project opens today (Jun 4) in the unassuming first level of Tower 1, ready to bring new life and perspective to the Central Business District.
