10 Perumal Road
(Near Farrer Park MRT Exit B)

Price: S$10.00 (Limited seats, first-come-first-served)

There is a confusion as to what art is supposed to achieve. Some say art is supposed to promote political agenda, to be critical and rebellious; some say to transcend the social and political contexts in which it is made; some say it reflects the realities of the world, to expose the hypocrisies of the social order; and some say it is supposed to save people by providing the experience of beauty or new insights into reality.

The artists attempt to respond to the views mentioned above, through working collaboratively with sound and actions. In addition, the artists will also be challenged by the physical and atmospheric properties of the performance site.

Sculpture Square's
5th Anniversary Exhibition presents

Artist talk featuring Arahmaiani, Krisna Murti & Tintin Wulia

Performance at Sculpture Square featuring Arahmaiani

Arahmaiani often uses performance to address political, religious, gender and social issues. For reformasi, the artist created "Wedding Party", an installation made up of outfits sewn from discarded political party flags. She will be presenting a video and discussing her recent performance done in Yogjarkarta relating to the installation.
Krisna Murti
A visual artist who uses video to present satirical images of political instability in his country. Murti is a versatile practitioner who has fully grasped 21st century technology, exploiting it to give a disturbing yet universally engaging picture of his indigenous culture. He will be speaking on the issue of “New Media Art in Indonesia”, focusing on media technology (handphones, computers, games, video, internet, etc.) – the influence of the everyday on new media art.

Tintin Wulia
Born in Denpasar, Bali, the artist grew up in a musical environment. She is a trained architect and composer but started experimenting with film making after a stint in a digital media workshop in Boston, US (1996). The artist will talk about her inspiration and her process of making the video work "Everything's OK" featured in reformasi.

reformasi: contemporary Indonesian Artists in the post-Suharto era

Indonesia, Southeast Asia's largest and most populous country, has experienced radical change at every level of society since the fall of President Suharto in the spring of 1998. Economic instability, ethic dislocation, geographic disintegration, communalism and political uncertainty all threaten the nation in ways that were unpredictable less than a decade ago. Yet as contemporary Indonesians grapple with each new crisis, the challenges they face are reflected in increasing openness in the press. And as society becomes freer, contemporary artists are reacting to a less controlled but ever more complex environment, in sophisticated and creative ways.

With reformasi, the largest and most comprehensive survey of Indonesian contemporary art shown in Singapore, this Sculpture Square initiated and organised exhibition seeks to give contemporary Indonesian practitioners a voice. Their work is sometimes radically innovative in concept or form, and their art, in the expression their concerns and reactions to life as it unfolds in this unsettling world of challenge and promise, cannot fail to engage universal audience.

Reformasi is co-curated by Sculpture Square's Tay Swee Lin and guest curator Singapore based Iola Lenzi. This exhibition will mark the 5th Anniversary of Sculpture Square's inauguration and is the most important exhibition of 2004.

This exhibition runs to the 27th June 2004.

Beauty is a concept that continually changes through the ages according to the whims and fancies of society. Anything
that falls outside conventional boundaries is ostracized, so much so that we are enslaved by our own blind quest for
what is proscribed as perfect beauty. As It Is does not perpetuate the myth of the body beautiful. Instead, it seeks to
suggest alternative visions of beauty in its many forms, as seen through the eyes of six artists. The intention is to show
that every individual can be presented as a work of art, a marvel of lines, forms, colours and texture. As It Is celebrates
just this, appreciating different body types as they are, simply the essence of their forms that goes beyond conventional
visible aesthetics.


PLAY runs from: 17th – 19th June 2004 (Thursday – Friday), 8pm – 840pm
FREE admission / Limited to 35 guests per performance.
Venue: Utterly Art Exhibition Space (208 South Bridge Road Level 2)

Priority will be given to guests who RSVP.

Skin Deep explores the dangers of an over-subscription of the beauty myth. The play revolves around the
set of SKIN DEEP, the TV programme where people undergo plastic surgery live. The absurdist mode in which
some of the delivery is made, and the movement onstage by the ensemble cast, seeks to challenge the
audience’s view of what makes up the body politic, the concept of development in the human soul, and how
people come to accept themselves after a long struggle with themselves. The play splices bits and pieces of
influence from the works of Arthur Miller (short story entitled “Homely Girl, A Life”); Edward Albee (a play entitled “Three Tall Women”); Pablo Neruda (sonnet entitled “Morning XII”) and Diana Son (short play entitled “R.A.W. (Raunchy Asian Woman)”).

This play is performed by the students of Anderson Junior College and directed Ms. Wong Sheau Ying and
Mohd Fita Helmi in the Utterly Art Exhibition Space. The exhibition “AS IT IS” will be used as the set for the play.

The movement in this version of Skin Deep is particularly to the space of Utterly Art Exhibition Space and the
exhibited works.

There is a confusion as to what art is supposed to achieve. Some say art is supposed to promote political agenda, to be critical and rebellious; some say to transcend the social and political contexts in which it is made; some say it reflects the realities of the world, to expose the hypocrisies of the social order; and some say it is supposed to save people by providing the experience of beauty or new insights into reality.
The artists attempt to respond to the views mentioned above, through working collaboratively with sound and actions. In addition, the artists will also be challenged by the physical and atmospheric properties of the performance site.
