Internationally acclaimed artists – Do Ho Suh, Haegue Yang, Shinro Ohtake, Jane Lee, and
Ryan Gander – head STPI’s presentation at Art Basel Hong Kong 2017, as the Singaporebased
experimental institution continues to celebrate its 15th anniversary. The booth is a
visual feast of new, fresh, never-before-seen works created in collaboration with the STPI
Creative Workshop team.
Highlights include Do Ho Suh’s stunning cyanotype explorations, a new development
in his established art practice, where he exposes his seminal fabric sculptures directly
onto photosensitive paper; Jane Lee’s tactile acrylic works that embody the same
transcendental aesthetic of her celebrated installations; and Haegue Yang’s exquisite
Cinnamon Sheets Composition (2017), a continuation of her experiments with the visual
aesthetics of spices as she strings an intriguing narrative and commentary through them
about the history, culture and economics of South-East Asia.
