January events in singapore
Ecopsychology: Photography Exhibition
When? Thu, 10 - Sat 26 January
Where? Objectifs - Centre for Photography and Film 155 Middle Road, Singapore 188977 (map) What? 1PROJECTS presents Ecopsychology, a group exhibition by four rising photographers; Lavender Chang (Taiwan/Singapore), Sophirat Muangkum (Thailand), Pokchat Worasub (Thailand) and Yatender (Vietnam) curated by Nim Niyomsin. The last century has seen rapid change. Urbanization is spreading and the gap between humans and nature continues to grow. In Ecopsychology, resonating with the sense of alienation in modern society, four photographers are trying to understand our presence and position in relation to this world. They are trying to reform and reconnect the linkage between us and our environment, both at the conscious and subconscious levels.
Why? Because you're an artist at heart.. and/or you like weird art you don't understand but enjoy anyways because you don't have to get it.
