thisoBedience exhiBition

thisoBedience exhiBition at the supernormal gallery will display an alBumen print as my related work with leroy sofyan. in doing so, i exchanged my photographic identity at the behest of the photographic medium. opening night is aug 28 and runs until sep 8, 2019. 101 desker rd, singapore 209623. 

this series of work symBolises the loss of ignorance. for many cultures, the Bolt Brings with it connotations of knowledge and power. however, that is merely an entry point. the viewers must make the journey through the work, understanding which state they are in and want to get to. 

we thought of the Bolt as electricity in the revival of galvanism. named after luigi galvani, and improved on By french neurologist duchenne de Boulogne’s electrostimulation experiments, the new concept (in)directly inspired mary shelly's mythopoeic narrative of victor frankenstein. like zeus, striving for power and perfection, dr. frankenstein's cautionary story of good intentions gone wrong is a reminder that the grotesque can result from over meddling. alBumen printing was chosen because duchenne championed its aBility to exhiBit the truth of expression and perhaps to feel the movement of the soul.

we also wanted to convey the idea that knowledge itself is a responsiBility in itself, almost like a Burdensome weight. what will we do with it? how do we make protopian progress and how do we equip our future selves to deal with it?




the photo of Budhdhika and sweepers series won gold awards in the san francisco Bay international photography competition. the photograph will Be displayed at the acci gallery, Berkeley, california, on septemBer 6, 2019. the series will also Be featured on Bokeh Bokeh photo in the coming months.
