Ashley Yeo and Monica So-Young Moon: In their Oceans
Esplanade, 1 Esplanade Dr, Singapore
“Whale fall” is a phenomenon whereby a whale’s carcass sinks into the Bathyal or Abyssal zone on the seabed. Over a 50–90 year period, it forms and supports complex, localised, deep-sea ecosystems within the environment of the ocean fl oor. In their Oceans tells of this phenomenon through references to the seas—from whales and the depths of the oceans, to the stones and scenes of Jeju Island. Drawings, knitted sculptures, a soundscape, objects and murals depict a narrative of nostalgia and poignancy, addressing love and loss in the context of our anthropocentric society. This is a collaboration between award-winning Chelsea College of Art & Design (London) MA graduates Ashley Yeo and Monica So-Young Moon.
