Dear Friend of PKW

This is to formally introduce myself as the new director at PKW. I've been working here the last five months, taking over the director's duties from Yvonne Lee. Yvonne remains a vital component of our small team. As do the artists who are associated with us. We, at PKW, would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your friendship and generosity these past years and trust in your continued support as we move ahead into the future.

There are changes afloat for PKW although we will remain true to the original vision for facilitating the artist's critical practice. We will keep you informed. In the meantime, we would love to hear from you your reflections on PKW through the last six years and, your vision for PKW, perhaps. We would certainly give your feedback serious consideration.

A pressing concern for now is the shortage of funds.

We have arranged a special screening for Wednesday, 17 November. Screening time 7 p.m. It will be followed by an auction of merchandise and a small party with the option to lindy-hop. We hope to have your company at this fun(d)raiser to mark the close the 6th Worms Festival. We are requesting a donation of S$10 and above per person and hope that you will bring your friends. Your donations will help us defray some costs and go to funding the next two issues of Vehicle, our magazine for contemporary visual arts.

If you are writing a cheque, and wish to have tax exemption, please make the cheque out to National Arts Council. At the back of the cheque, write "for Plastique Kinetic Worms " and mail the cheque to us at 61 Kerbau Road, Singapore 219185.

Please call 62927783 Jeannine or myself , should you have any queries. Please read on for details.

Thank You.
Dana Lam
for Plastique Kinetic Worms

It’s not The Eye. It’s not The Ring. It’s the television!

And it’s a fun(d)raiser.

THE HOUSES THAT ARE LEFT, 51 min, b& w film with colour video. Drama, comedy, documentary & the supernatural…

By Shelly Silver

Best Narrative Film, Atlanta Film & Video Festival
Best Narrative, Australia International Video Festival

At Plastique Kinetic Worms. Wednesday 17 Nov.
Screening from 7 p.m. Admittance: S$10

“Silver is one of the foremost figures in a younger generation of American video makers coming to prominence with a series of works which combine visual and formal experimentation with a provocative narrative punch…one of the most intriguing independent tapes to come out of the United States in the last few years.” Steven Bode, London Film Festival

In conjunction with R(A) Rated Artistic. Artists Take On Cinema, 6th Worms Festival, PKW. 28 Oct – 18 Nov. Closed on Sundays, Mondays and public holidays.

As part of PKW’s fun(d)raising effort, there will be an auction of limited editions Worms merchandise and other art objects following the screening. Your S$10 donation at admission allows you to bid and to party after. More importantly, your contribution helps make programs for helping artists viable. BRING FRIENDS!

Film Synopsis

The Houses That Are Left is a story of mortality, friendship, revenge, murder and the supernatural, as two friends come together to try to figure out how to live, while being besieged by malignant messages from the dead. While the living are rendered passive by their fear that something bad could happen to them, the dead, who no longer can have anything happen to them at all, strive to regain their ability to act through the only tool available to them, their television.

Juxtaposing black-and-white film with colour video, and fusing narrative elements of drama, comedy and documentary, Silver provides a structure that allows for a plurality of voices to speak: two women who were childhood friends, people on the street who are interviewed for “market research”, and the observations of dead people who watch the living and real people are interviewed by fictional characters.

Last month we, HAMES LEVACK, sent out news of our latest project ' The Exchange' on British Council newsletter. We are now writing to let you know, in case you missed the newsletter, that the deadline day is fast approaching and to ask that you let people know about the project. Effectively we are going to give our Mayfair gallery away for three months next year and to whoever we choose it represents a unique chance and experience.

The Exchange will see us swap places with a group of 1 to 4 people from somewhere in the world for three months next year. The idea is whoever we swap with will come to London and get our mobile phones, contacts, staff, offices and everything else. Their task will be to put on an exhibition in any which way they like.

Please find attached a press release and application form regarding the HAMES LEVACK galleryąs latest project, THE EXCHANGE. We are searching the globe to find a curator(s) or artist(s) who will swap places with HAMES LEVACK and come to London for four months next year to put on an exhibition.

We have researched each country in the world individually but as you know there is only so much that can be understood about a country from the internet and that there is no substitute for local knowledge.

We are contacting everyone at the British Council offices around the world directly to help us give as many people in the world as possible the chance to apply.

We would really appreciate it if you could help spread the word to artists and curators in Singapore ­ please send it on to anyone else who you think might be interested.

The application form is available in 20 languages at The deadline for applications is the 30th of November, 2004.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Crossings: Philippine Works from the Singapore Art Museum

From November 2004 until June 2005, 32 selected works by 27 artists, including Fernando Amorsolo, HR Ocampo, Carlos Francisco and Anita Magsaysay-Ho, will be shown to the public at the Ayala Museum.

The homecoming of these priceless works of art was made possible through the collaboration between the Ayala Foundation, which oversees the operation of the Ayala Museum, and Singapore's National Heritage Board.

The works represent three periods in the country's progress as a nation: before and after World War II (1930s-1960s); Martial Law (1972-1986); and post-Edsa 1 (1986-2000).

Fernando Zobel de Ayala, vice chair of Ayala Corp, tells the Inquirer the group is excited over the partnership with the Singapore National Heritage Board, as it marks the first time the two institutions collaborate in the field of the arts.

Zobel says the Singapore heritage board, which manages five museums, was an ideal partner considering it has one of the biggest collections of Philippine art overseas.

The Ayala group has long-standing business relationships with Singapore, through Globe Telecom's partnership with Singapore Telecom and Bank of the Philippine Islands' venture with the Development Bank of Singapore.
