Mark Thia: Night Throwing

Mark Thia: Night Throwing

Night Throwing is a new series of photographs by Singaporean artist Mark Thia. The photographs are ‘performative self-portraits’ in which object, language and the figure collide. The title Night Throwing itself gives us a hint of the artist’s process. His photographs are a projection of his thoughts and a means for him to project—to ‘throw’—his thoughts and memories. The objects in the photographs are surrogates for an image of the artist.
