“a new world”, which is the name given to the SEA Focus exhibition, SAW, an important event of Singapore Art Week, currently held at Tanjong Pagar Distripark. More than a name, it is an idea of a new beginning. The STPI art gallery in Singapore, whose mission is to promote art, is behind the event. A sharp selection of works produced in Southeast Asia is presented by 25 galleries from New York, Sydney, Berlin, Beijing, Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Bangkok, Hanoi, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and, of course, Singapore !
Experiences and commitments, these artists tell us. Take the time to explore their world, try to understand them and get involved emotionally…
One place, one artist, one meeting…
We love it here. A place unknown to taxis, in the heart of the ferry terminal warehouses. It is exciting to get lost in the floors of this building to discover a new gallery, temporary exhibition, cafe. Taking one of the elevators currently used for freight, and finding ourselves face-to-face with the pod at the end of the corridor, we love this quaint, timeless place. A place of exchanges, meetings, discoveries, freedoms.
It’s good to admire works we like or hate every time.
SAM, the Singapore Art Museum, also moved there last year.
Today in the framework of SEA Focus works Bettina Schleier We were particularly challenged by the materials he used and the meaning he gave to his work. Glass beads, embroideries, metal sheets, fluorescent acrylic, electronic components, her paintings are print schemes that represent cities, people, relationships, light in contacts, pleasure and the joy of being able to connect to something and someone. This artist is also outside the convention. His paintings are undoubtedly a positive view of the expansion of the world and human relations. It feels good. Art Porters Gallery, presenting Bettina in Singapore, understood this perfectly.

Nguyen Ngoc Vu Exhibited by CUC Gallery Hanoi, located in Saigon (aka Caubetho), combines classic Vietnamese art with pop culture. It’s impressive. This artist does not limit himself to any medium and integrates many references to the past, current events and everyday life in his works. He is an artist who dares.

Digital, one of the components of the work or a work in itself?
works of Keith Theo the result of the relationship between the digital and materiality of canvas and paint. He paints intuitively, but is always guided by specific ideas and emotional memories. He creates voluntary and at the same time completely random accidents on his canvases. His works are presented by AC43 Gallery Singapore.
