PICK OF THE WEEK:: From our Nov/Dec issue: Review of Yee I-Lann @ Silverlens, Singapore
As our historical memory falters, over and over again, we skew both present and past into convenient, stylish fictions. Yet, without a grasp of historical authenticity, how do we come to terms with a past that has failed us in some way? In her solo exhibition “Tabled” at Silverlens Galleries in Singapore, Malaysian artist Yee I-Lann lamented the indelible traces left by European colonialism in Southeast Asia. The artist’s process of revisualizing memory is potent and lyrical, enlivened by her concurrent work in film and production design.
