Spotlight on the S'pore River
FOR this year's Open Call 2010, an annual showcase first initiated by The Substation in 2008 to support strongly artistic, critical and rigorous visual arts proposals, The Substation presents The Singapore River as a Psychogeographical Faultline. The exhibition is created by young local artist Debbie Ding and features an installation that highlights the significance of the Singapore River. It also aids viewers in understanding its history and geography.
The installation is an interactive one that explores the river's role as a 'psychogeographical faultline' where reality and thoughts intersect and interact with each other, but also drift apart.
The exhibition runs from Sept 2 to Sept 26 at The Substation Gallery. Admission is free
Using multimedia technology combined with a fetish for maps, Debbie Ding creates a speculative map addressing the iconic body of water as an ever-changing space whose physical shape remains elusive to most Singaporeans.
