Warin Lab Contemporary to exhibit at Asia Pacific’s Biggest Art Fair
12-15 January, 2023
Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore
Warin Lab Contemporary is pleased to announce its participation at the inaugural edition of Art SG at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore from 12 to 15 January 2023 with VIP Preview on 13 January 2023. Warin Lab Contemporary will be one of only three galleries from Thailand at Art SG together with 150 world’s leading galleries.
The gallery will present a dual exhibition titled “Simulacra” by Arahmaiani Feisal of Indonesia and Thaiwijit Puengkasemsomboon of Thailand.
In line with the gallery’s focus on the ecosystem and sustainability issues, the exhibition creates a dialogue between the two artists who reflect on the emergency of the environmental detriment.
Thaiwijit focuses on the idea of humanity being engulfed in consumption, desires and anxieties. The walls will be filled with portraits, or simulacra of imaginative people, dissatisfied with their own life, in search of happiness and self fulfillment at the cost of the environment.
Arahmaiani, on the other hand, will be showing medium sized acrylic on canvas depicting floral portraits, simulacra of a nature that is disappearing because of our aggression and desire. Her artwork draws attention to the precious nature that human beings take for granted.
In their individual art practices, Thaiwijit and Arahmaiani tackle the environment issue from distinctive angles. Thaiwijit gives the second life to scrap materials such as cardboard boxes and old magazines while Arahmaiani’s practice is to engage with small communities to create projects that address the environmental issue of their locality.
ART SG is the biggest art fair launch in Asia Pacific in a decade. Taking place across two floors at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, ART SG is accompanied by a line-up of groundbreaking art installations, engaging panel discussions and experimental film.
