Thanks for the interview TimeOut Singapore!
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.

The Collected: portraits of collectors aligned and overlaid into one — a collection of collectors.
The Collected by DUDE.SG is a project where the artist, Eugene Soh, photographs and collects the portraits of international collectors who have converged here for Singapore Art Stage 2013.
Below are a few images that were generated during the creation of the final piece above.
The final piece will be an acrylic sculpture. Here is a 3D diagram.
That awkward moment when your awkward picture goes viral… Now what do I say to the bride? Awkward. Right.
There was another awkward-moment-ception when local radio DJs Divian and Jacqui from 98.7FM re-uploaded my image and my friend Philip Tan had to tell them that the photo belonged to me. I don’t really blame them — who credits memes?
The credited me immediately after, Cool of them to credit me! Thank you Divian and Jacqui!
Technically, combining both posts means that I’ve got (to me) a whopping 2883 likes! Woah. Thanks for support guys, appreciate it!
Here, I’ve collected my favorite shots from this year’s batch of graduates.
Why don’t I shoot as much in Singapore as I do overseas? I thought to myself. Does Singapore have less beauty to offer? Is the sun better overseas? Is the grass greener on the other side? If there’s one thing we’ve got, it’s sunlight. I don’t go out in it in Singapore as much – I don’t bother waking up early to see the museums because there’s no return flight to countdown to. I can do it tomorrow. Now that a possible Doomsday is looming I decided to visit the attractions here for a change. Happy Possible Doomsday!
