My Highlights from Art Stage Singapore 2014
Art Stage Singapore is a great opportunity for seeing Southeast Asian artworks and artists. Through their work, I’m excited to experience the true meaning of “We Are Asia,” the slogan of the fair.
It is a common sensitivity among Asians to find simple pleasures in our everyday life. The beauty and astonishment from a chance encounter, in an improbable place or situation, makes us consider what Le Comte de Lautréamont once described as “beautiful as the chance meeting on a dissecting-table of a sewing-machine and an umbrella!”.
These wonderful works show such an idea, simply and strongly, in a contemporary way.
