An exhibition that opened just yesterday at the School Of The Arts, Singapore Level 2 art gallery! This exhibition features works from the newly arrived year three cohort of 2012. A great way to start out their artistic education and possible future career in the arts!
Write up (taken from SOTA website):
The showcase will feature the explorations and developments of our youngest visual arts students at the School of the Arts. During their first two years, they are taught the basic techniques of the various art forms; drawing, painting, sculpture and ceramics. In addition to simply showcasing their varied approaches to art-making, this exhibition is also giving these young students a unique opportunity to reach a wider audience for the first time. We are proud to present you the creations of their first phase at SOTA.
31 March 2012 – 15 April 2012

Here is the promised photograph of my work being exhibited in i Light Marina Bay:
Write-up displayed at Marina Bay:
Representing SOTA is final-year student Chan Wan Kyn. His work, Tabula Rasa, explores the ability of light to visually divide spaces, affecting how a space is perceived.

Installation: Chan Wan Kyn
A short summary of the concept and the processes:
This work seeks to use the projection of light as a metaphysical division of space, only being complete with the interaction between the audience and the space. The light will be symbolic of the flexibility any space, and how it can be manipulated yet not permanently affected, attempting to impress upon the audience how light, rather than solid constructs, can affect space and one’s perception of it. Light, although traversable and ephemeral, is at the same time a representation of how architecture limits human interaction. Similar to any wall, it is immovable, and audiences are subject to what has been given.
Many thanks to Storybox from New Zealand, PICO, Philips Lights and my teachers who have helped me through the exhibition.

I am glad to say that I have been given the opportunity to display my work in this national exhibition. I will be representing my school, School Of The Arts, Singapore, in this public exhibition. Set up will commence at the start of the week and end, hopeful, by Wednesday. My work is marked as number 3 on the map, and it will be displayed at The Promontory itself. Just before the opening of the exhibition I shall be posting some of the pictures and the ideas that has led me to do this work.
I really have got to thank all my teachers who have helped me, seeing me and the project through till completion. Without them, I would not even have this opportunity and the ability to finish my work. Thank you once again!
I hope to see you readers there! Do drop by if you are in the area!
