Project Description


Series of 16 digital drawings,
developed on slide film
installed in miniature slide viewers

There are things that you really need, or want, or crave – things that make your life what it is. Often those items are devices, sometimes gadgets, or commodities, but no matter what they are, through their usage they turn into artefacts of our everyday.

Daily Desires are a new series of digital drawings presented on slides. They are line drawings rendered with patterns taken from the everyday environment of Hong Kong. Small objects with even smaller graphical ornamentation that have to be discovered by the observer through a peephole.

Part of the exhibition «Eniminiminimos: Artists Who Make Things Small II» at Jendela (Visual Arts Space) Level 2, Esplanade Mall, Singapore
November 5, 2009 until January 3, 2010

About the exhibition:
From Tan Seow Wei’s petri dish drawings to Chow Chun Fai’s animations of repainted film stills, artists from Eniminiminimos: Artists Who Make Things Small II, challenge the typical global “size fetish” that equates physical size with importance. This group exhibition explores the beauty, complexity and significance of “smallness” in contemporary art, and features works by ten artists from Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Curated by Singapore artist Michael Lee Hong Hwee, the exhibition showcases a wide range of approaches in exploring miniatures in contemporary art, including drawing, video, printmaking, model, sculpture and installation.
