Prelude: I’m a seed though a different one from you — Artist's Tour
I'm a seed though a different one from you is an investigative visual project by Lavender Chang which pursues the possibilities of life and existence.
Over a period of a year, the artist experimented with growing a variety of beans in diverse mediums and conditions such as carbonated drinks, Chinese ink, milk and blood - metaphors of the struggles and obstacles one face in life as individuals. Resembling human forms, the seedlings arduously eke out their transient existence. In the process, she contemplates on the diminutive but sturdy nature of seeds as metaphors for human survival.
This showcase launches Prelude, a quarterly exhibition series staged along the Print and Film Galleries of the house, which highlights significant works-in-progress by Singapore-based photographers.
Come join the artist Lavender Chang, in an intimate guided tour around the works to discover her thought processes and inspirations behind conceiving this body of work!
