Bridging Realms - 2200 A.D.
What would the Earth look like in the distant future? How would it evolve as a result of the way mankind treats it?

2200 A.D. is a witty yet unsettling interpretation of a dystopic future where the Earth has been depleted of natural resources and altered beyond recognition. The installation presents different facets of this world: from a macro-perspective of a city engineered to cope with new demands; to studies of the flora, fauna and architecture that now exist, presented as specimens to be observed and pondered over.

The installation comments on how mindless consumption of natural resources and the wastage resulting from modern materialistic lifestyles threatens our natural environment. The work urges us to reflect on the ethics of our behavior and the role of human agency in determining the kind of legacy we want to leave behind.
Bridging Realms - Ink Mountain 墨山
Ink Mountain 墨山 is Mark Chan’s personal and unique vision of the world where his paintings and calligraphy in Chinese brush and ink on distressed paper take centre stage. Typified by bold calligraphic strokes combined with personal, idiosyncratic techniques that break out of the strictures of traditional ink painting, Chan has fashioned a world and language of his own. This is a world inhabited by a rich mythology: creatures and spirits and a modern blend of abstractions that glyph, glide and splatter suddenly into recognisable forms and figures.

Chan collaborates with Brian Gothong Tan whose video works will reveal new layers and perspectives of Chan’s paintings. The gallery is transformed into a Sanctuary where the viewer can escape from the world outside. A compelling narrative thread runs through this immersive installation which has a deep connection to primitive roots, ancient mythology and the complex history and character of Southeast Asia.
Bridging Realms - Self-Portrait
A portrait is not just a representation of a person’s likeness. It is imbued with cultural references and speaks of the milieu in which it is created. In the past, only the affluent and influential had their portraits painted; while in today’s technology-driven world, everyone has access to creating images of themselves. Self-Portrait investigates the value of a portrait in contemporary society and how this value has evolved over time.

The installation features a diversity of portraits drawn from different eras, cultures and sources. Bayuaji juxtaposes Indonesian wooden masks with images of faces appropriated from paintings by old European masters and advertisements. Pivotal to the work is the use of mirrors that capture the expressions and appearances of people passing through—a subtle hint at today’s prevalent “selfie” culture where anyone can create their own portraits. The installation presents different interpretations of portraits and attests to their power to tell stories about the human condition that transcends time, cultures and geographical borders.
Bridging Realms - Game of Life
Justin Lee revisits his iconic terracotta warrior and re-envisions it as soldiers facing off in a game of Chinese chess, or xiangqi. Structural features reminiscent of the Chinese chessboard form the backdrop for this battlefield. The grid-like fortresses and river winding through the steps act like cartographical elements on a map, creating a theatrical setting for a fictional battle. To Lee, games and the concept of play could function as metaphors to investigate prevailing social and cultural norms. He is interested in how Chinese chess could be used to analyse the prevalence of social hierarchies and how these affect our interactions with each other. The installation is a tongue-in-cheek representation of how we manoeuvre the relationships we have in different arenas – at the workplace, in social settings and in the digital realm. The artwork is also an invitation to reflect on the impact of technology on our daily lives as we gravitate away from traditional games like Chinese chess to those played on digital platforms.
