A Travelling Exhibition by Singapore Artists
Little Bundles is a follow-up to the previous project 180KG held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. With the basic concept of a travelling exhibition, 180KG saw 8 Singaporean artists embarking on a trip to Indonesia with as little materials as they could possibly bring, resulting in an exhibition involving endless discourse; soaking into the culture, the exploration of materials found in Indonesia, and finally; creating a work from their experiences.
The project aims to dissect the idea of a ‘travelling show’ whereby artists are to collect their thoughts on the given theme. They will then explore how they could work with this concept - What is the meaning of a travelling show and how different it can be from any other previous travelling exhibitions.
Two luggages were handed out to artists invited for this project and the luggages were travelled from one artist’s studio to another. This process will see the transformation of the luggage as well as the artworks within it.
Documentation of the entire process of the ‘travelling artwork’ will be part of the installation in Surrounded By Water, The Philippines. Artists have also penned down their thoughts and sketches of their concept to be included in the exhibition as well.
Works created for Little Bundles will either be shown from within the luggage or be taken out as an individual piece. The aim is to be able to fit all 13 artworks in one or two luggages as befits a, literally speaking, travelling show.

about the rabbit 'blank' T-shirt: -
being true to rabbit's objectives, the rabbit 'blank' t-shirt encourages the wearer to search for his/her definition of a 'rabbit' feeling and serves as a written record of the wearer's interaction with spontaneous occurences. interestingly, the final typography design of the t-shirt is dependent on the wearer's handwriting, and allows chance to claim authorship over the contents and design of the t-shirt.
