Opening Reception: 14th May 2014, 6.30pm onwards
Exhibition Period: 12th - 25th May 2014
Co-organised with NTU’s School of Art, Design and Media, this exhibition takes on photography as a medium of focus whereby works of the two winners of the Kwek Leng Joo Prize for Excellence in Still Photography 2013 are showcased- Sarah Choo Jing and Jonathan Tan.
The Logic of Failure is their attempt to recognize and to confront situations that are traditionally ‘rejected’ or considered ‘unsuccessful’. Both artists reflect upon contemporary examples of The Spectacle and of expectation through subject matter and medium. By manipulating and re-presenting the document/documented, both Choo and Tan seek to open up alternative ways of looking at failure and success in contemporary society.
