fost gallery will be presenting the work of singaporean artist sookoon ang as part of art stage singapore, running from the 24th to the 27th, january 2013. ang’s work often combines various media in an effort to confront both the physical and metaphysical world through the language of art – approaching the idea of space as a spiritual, emotional and imaginative world. ‘the waves/waifs’ piece embodies this philosophy wholly – conjuring surrealist ideas of displacement, contradiction, and metaphors to the subconscious as well as otherworldliness. the brooms are created to manifest contrasting dualities of beauty and dejection, of esteemed disregard and of dysfunctional pragmatism. the hair lies limp on the dirty floor and their basic function of sweeping dust and grime is hindered by the splendor, texture and length of the golden locks. they sit haplessly and helpless yet at the same time, languidly and effortlessly against the wall in disuse. art stage singapore is asia’s premier international contemporary art fair with a strong southeast asian focus, and features over 120 leading regional and international galleries.
