Hello/enter

10:00am – 7:00pm
Free

In effort to aid local artists in building networks outside of the country, UltraSuperNew Gallery has initiated the program Hello/enter. This program sees us further leveraging on the relationship of our two sister galleries in Tokyo and Singapore. It enables gallery coordinators to help connect local artists with each other across countries – a feat that would have been left up to chance.

In the eight-week program, artists will only be given public, digital information of each other (e.g. online portfolios, email addresses) and will have to reach out to each other through the Internet. At the end of the program, artists will have to create at least one work in collaboration with each other and individual documentation of the entire program. These will be showcased in both galleries during the exhibition that opens on 9th January 2020 and runs till 16th January 2020.
The first of its kind, the exhibition is an experimentation on collaboration of not only by the artists but also the galleries as well.

This iteration of Hello/enter finds the artists exploring connections and connectivity through digital, physical and emotional distance. In combining both their practice, they utilise both site-installations and video installations in this exhibition. Taking their island countries as departure, the artists form and inform their works through what stands between them: the sky and the sea.
