Following up on the well-received video artist exhibition series “Changing Times, Moving Images” last year, ShanghART Singapore is pleased to present a seasonal weekly video art screening programme “Not Everything is as It Seems” this month, running over three weekends. Drawing on the nature of video art as a medium that often blurs the line between reality and fiction, this programme features a selection of works that challenges our perceptions with metaphors, illusions, and analogies.

In this age of information overload, perceptions can easily be altered and reality is not always as it seems. From the birth of photography, to television, the Internet, and social media, increasing number of channels continue to overwhelm our senses with imagery each day. In exploring the qualities that make the video format such a popular vehicle of transmission of information, artists are in turn equipped with a versatile medium that is able to bridge the perceived reality with the unseen and unspoken.

The featured works each seemingly investigate and depict a different idea and subject, with no connections to the others. However, when viewed together, it appears that a common thread can be drawn across them, and that not everything is as it seems.
