Moving Still 23rd June - 4th Sep 2011
20 Cairnhill Road, Singapore 229652
Singapore, Singapore

A group exhibition by eight distinguished artists, including a special video art commission by critically acclaimed film director, Glen Goei.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, its arguable that complex ideologies can be represented through a single image. On the flip side, in Moving Still, Vue Privee challenges Eight Asian-based artists, Aiman, Mr.B, Brendan Fitzpatrick, ClogTwo, Glen Go
ei, Jolene Lai, Kim Xu, and Sheryo, to turn this notion on its head. The artists reinterpret part of a dialogue or quote from a cinematographic frame into their own works of art.

The source of inspiration varies, ranging from scenes in Napoleon Dynamite, a three part Indie film by Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai, to a video recording by the obscure oprea singer Klaus Nomi. The artworks created are not mere replications of original photographic stills, but rather, unique interpretations expressed through a variety of media such as oil on canvas, mixed media on watercolor paper, and digital illustration to name a few.

Inspired from the motion picture : APOCALYTO

When the wise speaks, wisdom listens. As a young generation who are unprepared for the future, we must always be open-minded and heed our elder’s advice and wise experience. For their words are the golden tickets to a brighter future. Understand their mistakes, for only fools repeat it again. Inspired by the motion picture, Apocalypto, directed by Mel Gibson, the artworks will reflect the younger generation respecting their elderly and how precious they are in our lives before they are gone forever. A touch deeper than usual, deep into the human heart, of how we feel connected to our own flesh and blood. Even though, the rational of the story is based on an ancient plot, it can still be adapted in a modern context.

The series of mixed media artworks, ranging from pencil, pen spray paint and acrylic on acid-free watercolor textured paper.
