No longer judged by prying eyes in unfamiliar environments, private spaces provide not merely a semblance of solace in solitude but also propels the emergence of questionable disquieting junctures. Amidst the cacophony of complexities and dissonance in today’s diverse landscape, Nothing To Hide invites viewers to abandon all pretence and discover new narratives within a container of intimate spaces. Seemingly suspended in time, private spaces manifest a sense of escapism and encourages unfettered movements, allowing one to drift towards nonchalance with ease.
Drenched in quietude and evoking a sense of invisibility, Nothing To Hide confronts and provokes contemplative elemental dialogues between self, memories and the construction of identity in response to private spaces. Alluding to how interior of our minds reflect the state of private spaces, what elusive and compelling narratives can one uncover?
With both cruciality and playfulness, Nothing To Hide presents works by Sarah Choo Jing (Singapore), Mike HJ (Singapore/Taiwan), Faris Nakamura (Singapore), Do-Ho Suh (South Korea), Kayleigh Goh (Singapore), Mike Bouchet (USA) and Sarah Bostwick (USA) which urges self-reflexivity by addressing a spectrum of critical questions, including the recalibration of identity in private spaces and intimate anecdotes which only exist in private. – Exhibition Write-up
