Knives in the Water is an exhibition of new artworks from Singapore based Speak Cryptic. This will be his first solo show at Chan + Hori Contemporary – the first in 10 years in Singapore - and his most introspective one to date. The exhibition highlights a collection of characters and places which function as a means to explore tribal identity and group dynamics. At the core of his investigations are issues pertaining to the human condition and the visual language prevalent within the cultures of comics and underground music.

His previous exhibitions include a solo show at Officina Delle Zattere in Venice, Italy in 2015 and group exhibitions such as Secret Archipelago (Paris, 2015), Singapore Biennale (2013), Budi Daya (2014) and Future Proof (2012). He is a member of the DXXXXD Collective and plays the electric bass for the Singaporean based band, I AM DAVID SPARKLE.
