Sriwhana Spong and Maria Taniguchi: Oceanic feeling is the first major survey of New Zealand artist Sriwhana Spong’s and Filipina artist Maria Taniguchi’s decade-long practices. Both artists’ careers are influential in the art scenes of New Zealand and Southeast Asia respectively, and they are developing international reputations for uncompromising, experimental art.
Spong’s and Taniguchi’s practices are based on sculpture but include other disciplines such as painting, film and video, and performance. Oceanic feeling brings together works from across these media. It reflects on the two artists’ concerns with material, technological, and natural processes. The exhibition will stretch across the 42-metre length of the ICA Singapore’s largest open-plan gallery space. It is curated by Amsterdam based curator and writer Susan Gibb.
