“Everest” is an exploration of the monumental. Titled after the highest peak on earth, the exhibition showcases recent artworks by multidisciplinary artist Ang Sookoon that reflect upon the subject of greatness and its exception in form, scale, feeling and desire. “Everest” will also feature a collaboration with British designer Sorcha O’Raghallaigh, whose creations have been worn by Kate Moss, Beyonce, M.I.A, and Lady Gaga.
Accompanying the installation are series of smaller sculptures of bronze and wax, videos, and drawings, which work together to create an experience that transports the visitor away from everyday life into the fantastic. In conceptualising the work, Sookoon was particularly influenced by the work of writers such as the Bronte sisters, Gabriel García Márquez and Isabel Allende, where the magical and reality collide.
“Everest” is curated by June Yap and is part of Singapore Art Week.
