An artwork may have the ability to connect to its viewer through the persuasion of mental or emotional relevance. This connection is created by the artist based on his own purpose and objectives.
What happens when the viewers become the catalysts of the artist’s creative process? By engaging in a shared conversation with an intended audience, will this experience push the artist to create new styles and forms?
These are the questions that form the basis of upcoming exhibition, Interventions and Contemporary Ink, by contemporary ink artist Lim Choon Jin at the Visual Arts Centre.
Curated by Vincent Lin, the theme for this exhibition is inspired by his own observations on how conversations or shared experiences can affect a person’s behaviour and perceptions. He conducted a 3-month field research involving a selected group of participants and the artist.
Interventions and Contemporary Ink will run from 17 to 26 March 2017 at Visual Arts Centre, Dhoby Ghuat Green. The Centre opens from Monday to Sunday at 11am to 8pm. Admission to the exhibition is free.
Press Release of the exhibition is available here.
