by Richard Koh Fine Art Singapore
Location: Sculpture Square
Artist(s): Joshua YANG
Date: 18 Jul - 30 Jul 2014

Singapore, in collaboration with Sculpture Square and supported by the National Arts Council, is pleased to present Joshua Yang’s XXII. The exhibition will be held at Sculpture Square.

For his solo exhibition, Joshua Yang presents his new series XXII (2014): 50 paintings of the same scene from an old photograph; the only surviving photograph from the painter’s youth. This project focuses on the practice of painting in contemporary art as an apparatus for story telling and narrative. Yang’s idea is to present these paintings as a collection of the same painting from multiple realities; as though someone had the ability to travel through all the parallel universes to collect these paintings, and present them collectively at one place and time. In Yang’s words: “the realization that it is a portrait of ourselves at one point in time or another, we have been the elder or the younger, we have stood next to someone and shared a happy moment, however fleeting.”

The installation of paintings will be accompanied by a recorded voice/sound installation, which will highlight the narrative aspect of the project. The narrator retells the stories behind these paintings and the story loops back on itself in the recording.
