Continuing Sullivan+Strumpf Singapore’s focus on bridging the arts between Australia and Asia, Trompe-l’œil marks Dr. Mikala Tai’s first curated show in Southeast Asia, promising trajectories that are personal yet universal.
Trompe-l’œil brings together six artists from across Asia and Australia who seek to reimagine understandings and expectations. Their works, although diverse, all use artistic techniques to recast our readings of the everyday. Through holographic shifts, tessellated shadows and unexpected flickers the works reveal alternative futures and dark realities. With the comfort of expectation lost the viewer is invited to consider, in that moment of rupture, the expanded possibilities of new perspectives.
