Free Admission


A love letter to devotion and intimacy, an ode to togetherness, an homage to the claustrophobia of surveillance capitalism. Organised by INSTINC, DE:VOTED is an immersive mash-up of light, sound, performance and technology by seven local artists and two Japanese artists. DE:VOTED’s sense of evolving communality will play out through programme of workshops, guided tours and space activations. Set-up, presentation and deinstallation will be dissected and opened up in a single continuous gesture over seven days.

See works by Singaporean artists Urich Lau, Justin Lee, Yen Phang, Ezzam Rahman, Andy Yang, Yeoh Wee Hwee and Yeo Shih Yun and Japanese artists Chihiro Kabata and Yuuri Kabata.
