Repeat, Repeat, Repeat; revising the phenomenon of printing

The Private Museum | 7 May to 7 July 2019 | Free Entry

The Private Museum (TPM) Singapore proudly presents Repeat, Repeat, Repeat; revising the phenomenon of printing, by guest curator Zaki Razak, from 17 May to 7 July 2019.

In this second edition of TPM Guest Curator series, Zaki Razak brings about a group exhibition featuring works of printmaking in different mediums by seven artists alike; Miguel Chew, Weixin Chong, Mona Choo, Urich Lau, Nadia Oh, Shin-Young Park and Shih Yun Yeo.

It is a relative norm for printmaking exhibitions to focus on traditional methods and the expanded practice of artists who adopted painterly approaches, exploring a certain degree of experimentation, challenging the convention on what is permissible, and demonstrating sophisticated control of the process.

However, more substantial is the repeat pattern of thematic exhibitions, which emphasizes the possibilities of print. A similar sentiment towards an often-repeated source can be reflected in the works of Albrecht Dürer, the rockstar of printmaking, whose meticulous and dynamic works are often first to be considered the most refined and celebrated, never failing to feed on the ecstasy of our sights.

In Repeat, Repeat, Repeat; revising the phenomenon of printing, the various artists revisit and redefine the history of printing by exploring an array of techniques and elements, covering a wide spectrum of topics such as urban culture in the digital age, science and spirituality, robotics and ink, as well as biblical art.

The artists’ visual responses in forms and formation are meant to be symbolic visual cues to the journey of printing towards a knowledgeable ascent – to bring a certain degree of consciousness, what was before and after the invention of the Gutenberg printing machine, and how the printed matter has changed or affected the human condition. With the various forms of print presentation and medium, the artists redefine the phenomenon of printing and imprint into one’s mind a fresh perspective.
