Ongoing: SaLang#5: Gregory Halili / “Phenomenon” (12 to 30 August 2017)
History, whether personal or collective, can be likened to the sea. It can look placid and inviting but upon immersion could have powerful currents that can either push one back to shore or to certain death in its embrace. Gregory Halili’s Phenomenon presents us with a skeleton made of coral-stones resting upon a bed of driftwood. Both materials, while having lived previous lives, have undergone different transformations, reincarnations, and have been shaped by the sea. Driftwood can resume to sustain life; the coral-stones have been turned into another object, an art piece. The work is replete with many histories and stories embedded within its physical form, some immediate and known, others, like the ocean and sea, deep-seated and speculative. It calls us to recollect and think about what constitutes existence on this earth, our primal affinities to water as an entity that takes and gives life, with the work as testament.
Upcoming: SaLang#6: Poklong Anading / “Road to Mountains”
