In today’s fast-paced world, where we are inundated with information and the stresses of everyday living, we rarely take note of, or appreciate our surroundings. Calvin Pang’s 'Where am I' encourages close observation and a sense of awareness about our surroundings, piquing our wonderment and curiosity. Sited in oft-overlooked corners of the museum, Where am I is a series of clustered mushrooms painted in vivid colours. This whimsical work attempts to illustrate how surprises come in all shapes and sizes, and can be found even in our most well-trodden routes – and the delight one experiences in making these discoveries.
