Transaction of Hollows by Melati Suryodarmo

Exhibiting and performing at bienniales and festivals across the globe, Melati Suryodarmo is known for her work ranging from video and photography, to installations, while durational performance remains her best known art form. As part of Singapore Art Week 2018, ShanghART Singapore is pleased to present a two-month long solo exhibition of her work.

In addition, the gallery will also be staging Suryodarmo’s performance, Transaction of Hollows, a live, durational performance which will take place over two days. ShanghART Singapore invites audiences and art lovers alike to be immersed in this on-site piece.

The live performance is a long durational performance piece that investigates mankind’s mixture feeling of desire and fear on love and war. Melati evokes desolation and anxiety at the state of politics and society as she negotiates the nuances of such emotions through these circumstances by repetitively shooting hundreds of arrows without a specific target. The audience is invited to be present in the same space, connecting with the artist and the intense and wild atmosphere in their own unique way. Transaction of Hollows was first performed at LIlith Performance Studio, Malmo in 2016.
