ALFONSE from PLURAL Art Mag

Both The Deepest Blue and Head spinning, loop creating present distinct entry points for greater public discussion about a subject matter that, despite affecting a significant fraction of the population, continues to remains taboo in Asian sensibilities. Part of D/SINI’s third wave of programmes, it is also the first to dedicate itself to empowering emerging, Singapore-based curatorial voices.
