Resituating Home(making): Hyper-Material Domesticity
23 January 2021 - 30 January 2021
65 Aliwal Street
This exhibition centers itself around domesticity, craft and the feminine, working beyond the artifice of the art-versus-craft hierarchy. Four artists, Amirah Raudhah, Dipali Gupta, Fatima Bano, and Masuri Mazlan will present works looking at the domestic realm as a means of elevated expression. The exhibition features a range of artworks from paintings, sculptures, new media, and installation art. Tapping into relational aesthetics, the artists will also conduct workshops throughout the exhibition on various craft-making techniques. Through the performative nature of these workshops, participants are invited to contemplate the visual language at the core of the domestic sphere.
Resituating Home(making): Hyper-Material Domesticity is organised by Tekad Kolektif, a non-profit art initiative that facilitates artistic collaboration between young art talents and independent artists to inspire new critical insights in their art-making as well as to foster self-development through critique sessions. Tekad Kolektif was established in 2019, with its inaugural exhibition Of Spaces and Phases, debuting in 2020.
