ShanghART Singapore is pleased to present group exhibition “Days after Days after Days”, opening on 21 April 2023. Featuring works that portray the daily sights from Han Feng, Liu Weijian, Pu Jie, Sun Xun, Boedi Widjaja, Wu Yiming, Zhang Enli, Zhou Tiehai, and Zhou Zixi, the exhibition attempts to draw out the frequently neglected moments and parts of our daily lives.
Mundane but also a persistent part of our daily lives, the depicted imagery in the exhibition is in fact full of constant changes hidden within, as nothing is permanent; these changes are just often neglected by us while we are focused on every other thing in life perceived to be more important. This exhibition strives to create an environment for the audience to encounter and experience these daily sights in a direct manner, inviting them to observe and sense the multitude of changes that exist among the sights, in turn discovering the impermanence of our surroundings.
The inner space of the gallery presents an entirely different world, as if constructed out of the minds and perceptions of people who are able to observe the ephemerality and minute details in our daily lives. The large-scale painting installation by Sun Xun sits in the space, forming a magical experience within an ordinary physical environment for the audience to step into.
As the world slowly resumes to normalcy, with the impossibility of going back to the exact same state as before, perhaps it is time that we heighten our senses and be more perceptive to the surroundings, and rethink what “daily life” means to us. Discovering the impermanence of our daily life might in turn aid us in understanding the ever-changing world that we reside in and comprehending how it affects our internal states of mind, allowing us to get a slightly clearer picture about our present and our future.
