Lonely Vectors Multi-Site Exhibition
19 February - 11 September
Lonely Vectors presents a series of artworks and new commissions that draw attention to the flow of bodies and labour, exclusive zonings, fault lines, choke points, and infrastructural politics that characterise the global economy. It will kick off its first two presentations at SAM’s Bras Basah and Queen Street hoardings and public libraries respectively:
The Green Crab: A Diagram of Auspicious Spatial Organization (19 Feb to 28 Aug at SAM’s Bras Basah and Queen Street hoardings) is a newly commissioned site-specific installation – a speculative feng shui map of Singapore’s urban environment that juxtaposes the philosophy of qi against the logic of the global economy’s flow, providing an alternative guide for navigating the city.
Seeding Sovereignty (1 Mar to 11 Sep at Bedok, Ang Mo Kio, Jurong, Tampines public libraries) is a new commission by Singapore artist Chu Hao Pei that will travel across the public libraries in Bedok, Ang Mo Kio, Jurong and Tampines. The presentation takes the form of a series of cabinets that function as a seed library to showcase Singapore’s intertwined past with rice and the region.
The third and final presentation will be held at SAM at Tanjong Pagar Distripark from 3 June to 4 September 2022.
