Seeing the Forest For the Trees

Seeing the Forest For the Trees features Singaporean artists Ang Song Nian (b. 1983), Woong Soak Teng (b. 1994) and Fitri Ya’akob (b. 1996), whose photographic works challenge our first impressions and encourage us to look closely.’

Throughout the exhibition, nature is presented in various contexts of control and disregard. Although the human figure is visually absent, humanity, in fact, holds an inordinate amount of control over the existence of nature. Whether it is through the manipulation of plants to grow a certain way or the introduction of manmade materials into natural habitats, nature is treated as something to tame, use and own.
