Exhibition

The Luxurious World

Exhibiting Artists: Andre Tan

Venue: F1 Pit Building > venue details

Dates: 17 Nov 2011 - 20 Nov 2011

For his fourth solo outing, Andre Tan creates a fresh visual vocabulary for Singaporean pop art, pairing images of the inhabitants of old Singapore with images of the popular culture of today. His anachronistic anomalies often thrust an item of unimagined luxury onto an unsuspecting coolie or samsui woman, wrenching them into our modern-day consumerist culture with its concomitant absurdities. The unexpected juxtapositions might invoke a fleeting reflection on our bizarre obsessions with goods of desire, which would then dissolve readily into laughter and simple merriment.
