Are we descending into a pool
Or transcending on the beach?
It was quite a fun afternoon at the National Museum of Singapore (NMS). NMS is exhibiting installation art from the FRAC (French Regional Collection of Contemporary Art*).
Entitled “What is not visible is not invisible”, taken from Julien Discrit’s 2008 work, also on display, it was an interactive experience, quite accessible even for an art plebian like me.
Here’s my take, “State of mind” in installments, where I touched light and heard smoke, on the transient and the imaginary.
If I don’t see it
Is it not there?
* contemporary art presents an idea
It’s like standing at a street corner. The world passes by and you’re there standing. Looking. Without a thought.
Doing handstands would at least draw a crowd. Or if not, have at least some purported health benefits.
I wonder how many people are standing on their street corners. Seemingly devoid of thought.
Not attracting attraction. Their noisy thoughts with them. Even when there are seemingly none.
Nevertheless, I am sure there are people out there. Standing on their street corners. Waiting. Watching. As the world spins by.
They appear to be in one piece. They walk with powerful strides. They walk with a spring in their step. They walk tall.
My niece, A, asked me why I haven’t been writing. I don’t know. “Voicing silent words” is what I’m thinking. Not sure if that’s necessary. Well, at this point.
It’s like the animation from this video she posted in her blog. A silent show. Quiet. Peaceful. Poignant. Artistic. Nullifying the need for words. That’s why.
Whether this makes any sense or not, this is for you, A. Just because you asked. 🙂
The places I have been, and the places I will go.
