A duo exhibition that features Singaporean artists, Johann M Fauzi and Masuri Mazlan, this show features large-scale realistic oil paintings and intimate abstract sculptures that explore identity, representation, and embodied memory.
The exhibition pries into Johann M Fauzi’s current research investigating the conceptual framing of Singapore’s landscape within the intersections of the Classical and Romantic periods, as well as ‘otherness’ and the position of the Malay in Singapore.
In contrast, Masuri Mazlan’s central practice focuses on the affective and transformative potential of common industrial materials such as sculptural media. His sculptural objects tap on polyurethane, gypsum, and silicone to investigate identity politics, queer abstraction, and draw inspirations from the domestic sphere as a destabilising site.
