from A Cartographic Desire

Tanah Air Beta (Indonesia)

Mixed media on canvas |130 x 70 cm | 2011

I used to think of maps as merely just part of geography lesson which has its function to identify and gives information about certain places. However in this work, I am attracted to the aesthetics of the natural shapes of islands which are the result of the shifting and changing of earth from time to time. Coming from Indonesia, I am particularly drawn to the islands of Indonesia which gives me an idea in a new way of looking at the disparate and scattered islands that make up Indonesia.

Through interpreting these shapes and parts of Indonesia into a drawing filled with different colours that I associate with childhood woodblock toys, I wish to evoke a sense of nostalgia and memory of the country which I grew up in.

A Cartographic Desire

Thursday, August 11 at 6:30pm - August 25 at 4:00pm

Project Space @ Lasalle
1 McNally Street
Singapore, Singapore
Human beings had since time immemorial, attempted to represent and visualise their environment through the drawing of maps in a variety of manners and perspectives – some more scientific than others, whilst many are skewed projections of how we like to perceive the worlds we live in. Despite the purposes of maps that yield desire to conquer and colonise new lands through battles and feuds, the language the maps is essentially on...e that promises routes into and out of the unknown. Yet for the artist, the map is a document filled with much artistic potential with a network of assumptions ready to be use, exploit and develop.

A Cartographic Desire is an exhibition that hopes to stimulate a dialogue between art and geography. As artists become increasingly sensitive to issues of space and problems that confound the border between the real and the fictional, the maps found and reinterpreted by the artist-students in this exhibition continue to seek that experience of the individual-within-space and the multiple subjectivities that come with depicting and representing places.
The rethinking of space/place is dynamic, subjective and multi-dimensional, in which the art works in this exhibition hope to evoke so that one can reconsider if space can be represented, and the limitations of this representation.

Featuring the works of:

Bradley James Foisset
