May’s Art Mayhem

 Every month, Singapore’s host of galleries mount new exhibitions—but how do you know which are worth visiting? Join us as we take you straight to the most talked about contemporary art as well as classic art pieces of the moment.

The Substation Gallery

For some of Singapore’s most exciting and challenging works of contemporary art, performance art and sound art, there is no better spot to see, hear and experience it than at The Substation Gallery. Its gallery has hosted many established and young artists.

This month, sculptor, painter, and comics artist Iskander Walen sets up shop in the gallery. Love Bomb (May 13-21) is a tongue-in-cheek large-scale installation work that aims to invite reflection on the increasingly graphic depiction of violence in the news media and entertainment, versus the continued taboo of nudity. The work intends to examine, through humour and wit, the apparent hypocrisy and contradiction in the media’s fixation with violence towards the body and the public consumption of this fetish by the consumer.
