Join us as we invite artist, Han Sai Por, Senior Curator from the National Gallery Singapore, Adele Tan, and Guest Curator of “Strange Forms of Life”, Guo-Liang Tan, for a discussion situated around Han’s biocentric approach to abstraction. Exhibited alongside other notable local artists, Han’s paper pulp works, created at STPI’s in-house workshop, are presented as part of “Strange Forms of Life”, STPI Gallery’s ongoing exhibition. Han’s rich interest in organic and natural forms comes through most prominently in her works, offering an artistic vantage point from which a different and sincerely generative perspective of nature may be formed.

Join art historian and curator at the Singapore Art Museum, Chanon Kenji Praepipatmongkol, and Guo-Liang Tan, artist and guest curator of “Strange Forms of Life” for a thoughtful discussion centred on the prolific practice of the late Singaporean-British sculptor Kim Lim.

What does it mean to approach Kim Lim as an artist interested in the life of materials? Such a question may seem to go against the impersonality of the serial and gridded compositions she is known for. But lively presence in Lim’s work is conjured precisely through a careful minimalism of means. Across sculptures and prints, sinuous energies of the meticulously drawn line jog an elemental imagination: the shimmering tension of a liquid surface, the deepening of rivulets into shadowy troughs, the gentle fan of a current petering out into air. Understanding animation as the interplay of material thing and its evocation of memory, this talk suggests the relevance of Lim’s work for a sculptural imagination that cuts across usual measures of time and place. In the past few decades, Lim’s practice has been increasingly distinguished as a strong point of reference for abstract practitioners.
