Inside the Wild Cube

Inside the Wild Cube is an exhibition of the collaborative group project Progressive Disintegrations comprising Chua Chye Teck, Marc Gloede, Hilmi Johandi and Wei Leng Tay. It is an artistic investigation into how spatial conditions impact the processes of art production and presentation. Central to this exhibition is the idea of the White Cube. Since the beginning of the 20th century, it has been a symbol of modernist art presentation, indicating a process of validation and establishment, and hence the dominant spatial environment for museums and galleries.

Ever since Brian O’Doherty’s reflection “Inside the White Cube”, this environment has been approached critically, and yet remains the dominant spatial form for exhibition-making. Inside the Wild Cube takes and embraces white cube aesthetics as a starting point (which in this case are the remains of a former gallery in Gillman Barracks). The works presented range from painting to photography, moving image, and installation. They will take a closer look at how homogenous this white space really is, and the conditions and questions it produces or offers. With that, the exhibition offers an interesting resonance between art works and space. It invites the audience to experience how the play between white cube and art works can allow for a deeper understanding of the dynamics between two sides mutually influencing each other.
