Plastique Kinetic Worms
Worms Festival V : HOUSE
24 October – 22 November 2003
A house is a building made for people to live in, usually built for a single group of occupants. All the people who are in the house, particularly the people who usually live there, define their spaces within intimately, to make themselves comfortable, sometimes containing their memories and projecting their memories in images. The House shelters us, protects us and allows us to dream in peace. In the past, present and the future, the House offers us this potential binding mechanism to integrate our thoughts and memories; translating this unique entity into a space and moving images.
The feature for this year’s Worms Festival 5: HOUSE will be an architect’s conceptualisation of the gallery space of Plastique Kinetic Worms as well as a compilation of video works and films by various local and foreign artists, which will be presented as part of an interactive installation for the period of the four weeks. The gallery space will be transformed by an architect into a space accommodating a collection of moving images by local and overseas experimental filmmakers providing the visitor a glimpse into an environment comprising of the physical space and moving images.

Upon his migration to New York, the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian was inspired to paint Broadway Boogie Woogie (1943), a piece which while keeping to his severe aesthetic of intersecting straight lines and limited colour palette, was nevertheless alive with the vibrancy of his new adopted city as his once uniform bars of colour were broken into several multicoloured segments. Sixty years later, one could imagine young Singaporean artist Trina Poon to have taken flight with Mondrian’s preliminary ideas. She presents a portrait of a city breathtakingly complex in its conception and execution, comprising literally hundreds of fragmented colour cells in a starburst of exuberance. The bejeweled brilliance of her painted surfaces never lets the eye rest as it flits from colour block to grid to diagonals to stripes. As the consummate metropolitan, Trina distills the essence of the buzz of her city living in canvases of vibrant colour and energy. Her paintings virtually twinkle with the shiny brilliance and showy lights of her busy home.
Preview Trina's work now at the preview of ARTSingapore, now on at the Ground Floor Lobby, Singapore Tourism Board, Tourism Court, 1 Orchard Spring Lane till MONDAY 13TH OCTOBER, 10am to 7pm.
