As part of the global campaign, Passion Made Possible, Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Chan + Hori Contemporary have collaborated to launch the showcase Atypical Singapore. The exhibition features art from seven contemporary artists handpicked by Chan + Hori Contemporary’s curatorial director and partner, Khairuddin Hori. Art and technology studio Meshminds and artist Eugene Soh also developed Augmented Reality (AR) technology for selected artworks and AR namecards, bringing them to life in a medium that allowed for an interactive experience and new perspectives of art.
The artists – Daniel Yu, Gerald Leow, Speak Cryptic (Farizwan Fajari), Amanda Tan, Eugene Soh, anGie seah and Muhammad Izdi – have practices that range from performance art and sculpture, to animation and painting. Together, they provide a multi-sensory experience that helps bring a taste of the diversity that exists in Singapore’s art eco-system to an international audience.
