mysterious objects at noon


What happens when  artists work collaboratively? – what changes in their practice and in their ways of thinking about making art? Ten artists, five from Singapore and five from the United Kingdom joined together to  create five duo projects, in a 21st Century remake of the Surrealists’ game of  ‘Exquisite Corpse’. The films, performance, text, photo-montage and installations that have come from these collaborations were first shown at the  Objectifs Gallery in Singapore, March 10 – 17 2015. The exhibition  will subsequently travel to ArtLacuna Space, London, and runs from October 29 – November 1 2015, with the Opening Event and Lu/Hosea  performance on the evening of Thursday October 29 from 6.30 – 9.

While some of the  pairs knew each other before the start of the project, others are meeting for the first time –  and some of these may never even meet face to face. All of the five collaborations have this element in common: they have all been devised and predominantly created in virtual reality – by Skype, email, IM messaging or video file sharing, produced in separate rooms and studios across cities and continents.

‘Mysterious Objects at Noon’ was first made possible with the generous support of the National Arts Council, Singapore.  It ran in Singapore in conjunction with the GREAT British Week Singapore (7-14 March 2015), which was hosted by the British High Commission and British Council Singapore.

We are grateful to Objectifs and ArtLacuna for all their help in staging the exhibition.
