Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore, has collaborated with five contemporary Singapore based artists in a premiere art exhibition entitled Skin & Walls showcasing the collision between art and participation in an engaging and inspirational exhibit.
The provocative theme draws on the evolution of technology, creativity and talent beyond the construct of a canvas and the huge impact this is having on the art world.
Paul Roebuck, Chief Executive Officer of Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore and Malaysia said, “We want to open the eyes of our people, our partners and our clients to the collision of technology and creativity. Our aim is to provide a platform for exchange of ideas, the exploration of new technology and techniques that will not only add to the conversation around mix media art, but also help artists discover new avenues to develop their creativity.”
The exhibit is centred on skin and walls as medium for expressing creativity using tools and technology. “We have cleared our hallways and huge walls to make room for art pieces that inspire the imagination. With a theme as provocative as Skin & Walls, the art forms will engage the audiences senses, sometimes voyeuristic and highly intimate but always edgy and stimulating.” added Celevel Ranoco-Butler, General Manager of Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore.
Saatchi Art Hallways will open its doors on 25th September in the Agency’s iconic Clarke Quay location featuring the works from Andree Weschler, Jahan Loh, Joseph Siow, Tommy Morris and Lan Ziquan. The exhibit has been curated by Vanini Belarmino. The exhibit aims to let imagination seep through the depths of the skin with tattoo art and reflect on the walls with captivating performances and graffiti allowing the audience to take part. “Through participation, we discover new emotions and feel something that is deeply personal. An idea is not an idea until people participate,” added Ranoco Butler.
