only losers left alive (love songs for the end of the world) – Part 2

Showcasing Local and Locally-based Artists, with a Central Proposition:

IF OUR WORLD WERE TO COME TO A SCREECHING HALT TOMORROW, WHAT WOULD WE BE LEFT WITH?

only losers left alive (love songs for the end of the world) is an exhibition featuring a roster of local and locally-based artists. Occurring in two parts, the exhibition takes its visual and conceptual cues from cinema, featuring tableaux populated by objects, images and sounds that evoke the moods of a universe ravaged by unknown forces. This is a show that derives its tone and tenor from science fiction, a conjuring of the future that derives sensorial pleasure from the act of retroprojection. Providing the real-world context for the mood of despondency is, of course, the current pandemic, and the climate of fear, uncertainty and paranoia in which the global population has been mired in. Where the first instalment focused on human bodies, technological objects and an almost monochromatic palette, the second half of only losers left alive (love songs for the end of the world) foregrounds instead bright and pastel colours, and visual motifs centred on flora, fauna and alien shapes – almost as if human presence has now departed the equation, and only a post-human world remains.

The exhibition is curated by Louis Ho, and the second instalment runs from August 7 to August 29, and features the work of Mark Chua and Lam Li Shuen, Georgette Goh, Victoria Hertel, Geraldine Lim, Masuri Mazlan, Sarah Isabelle Tan, Juria Toramae and Samuel Xun.
