Back from my break

Hey guys, I’m back from my trip to Boston and Bangkok! A few exciting things happened while I was away – making me regret I left Singapore… but oh well.

1. The Last Kopitiam at the Affordable Art Fair 2013

3. Little India Riot

Although regretful, this must have been the biggest news for Singapore all year! I was observing the not-as-exciting protests in Bangkok while all that was happening back home.

DUDE’S SHOW – Musings and Meditations on His Reality

My first solo show coming up guys!

Venue: OCBC Centre Branch, 65 Chulia Street, Singapore 049513
Dates: 12th – 31st August 2013

OCBC Arts Card presents a collection of photographic and video works from emerging Singaporean artist Eugene Soh. In his signature irreverent and humorous style, Soh confronts pertinent social and cultural issues with disregard for convention.

Included in this presentation is The Overview, an interactive installation based on Soh’s own “Eugene’s Cave” theory. The installation delivers an “out-of-body” experience that bids the participant re-think his or her own sense of perspective and reality.

Also on display will be the artist’s seminal parodic works, The Last Kopitiam and Venus and Grace. Firm favourites with the public, these works have garnered the 2012 Crowbar Award and 2013 Sony World Photography finalist award respectively.

Organised by Chan Hampe Galleries and supported by Asian Art Options.
