The Significance Of It All Is The Insignificance Of It All
10 November @ 8:00 am - 19 December @ 5:00 pm
In experiencing both the synergy, and the tensions that arise between formlessness and form, The Significance Of It All Is The Insignificance Of It All by Aiman explores the dynamics between that which is tangible and that which is possible. The artworks also examine the relationships — from both a syntagmatic and paradigmatic perspective — between the fall of one world, and another struggling to be born.
By creating a space for introspection, the exhibition presents the audience with the opportunity to contemplate — in surrendering and deconstructing entire notions of being, how would the dawn of a new horizon look like? In the absence of an existing form of institutionalisation, what would be the guiding principles by which we would choose to live by to ensure liberty for all? And most importantly, what can we be doing today to be in alignment, and to be of service to that reality?
Aiman is an interdisciplinary artist, a graduate from Lasalle-SIA College of the Arts class of 2004. He has had three solo exhibitions in Singapore — the most recent one held in Nov 2021 (The Significance Of It All Is The Insignificance Of It All) and the one before that in 2018 (The Evolution of Eian & Eien). He has also previously participated in art fairs and exhibitions both in Singapore and overseas, including Art Stage Singapore and Jakarta (2017/2018), the National Art Gallery of Malaysia, the Sunshine International Museum, in Songzhuang, China, and alongside Indonesian artists as part of Jogja Open Studios. Aiman’s current practice explores the process of self-actualisation and individuation, through paintings, performance art, installations and new media.
In confronting these insights, one might be goaded to dream, articulate and give birth to a new world.
