Time and Space

Lee Hon Kit, Edmund Low, Jeffrey Wandly
August 6, 2021 - September 26, 2021

Maya Gallery is delighted to present Time and Space, an exhibition that explores our built environment from the past, present and into the future through the eyes of three Singaporean architecture-trained professionals Lee Hon Kit, Edmund Low and Jeffrey Wandly. Each has his own unique response to unique living environments on our island, expressed through different media of digital art, photography and painting respectively. 


The exhibition aims to increase an awareness of Singapore’s built environment and its changing landscapes, encourage the younger generation to appreciate Singapore’s struggles and achievements, and celebrate the intangible memories of our visual heritage through time and space. 

Held in commemoration of Singapore's 56th National Day and supported by the National Arts Council, Time and Space runs until 6 September 2021.

ART TALK
Art & the Built Environment
Friday, 10 September 2021
4pm – 5.30pm 
Maya Gallery

Join the three artists of 'Time and Space' at Maya Gallery—Lee Hon Kit, Edmund Low and Jeffrey Wandly, as they share their artworks and artistic practices. Their works touch on the past, present and future of the theme of our built environment, something close to their hearts as schoolmates and graduates of Architecture from the National University of Singapore in the 1990s. They will be joined by Prof Kwok Kian Woon, Teo Han Wue and Lai Chee Kien. The conversation will shed light on how art can explore issues of our intangible memories, visual heritage and changing urban landscapes and living conditions in Singapore.

Due to safe management measures, this dialogue session is open to invited guests only. It will be recorded and broadcasted to the public on the gallery website and Youtube channel. Thank you for your understanding.

See you at the gallery!

ARTISTS


LEE HON KIT

(b. 1968, Malaysia)

Lee Hon Kit picked up his love for drawing at a young age. He often spent time doodling and drawing whenever he could. Nurtured by loving parents, who granted him unfettered access to comics, his love for the medium grew. He soon develop the talent to draw comics of his own. At age 13, he left his hometown in Malaysia for Singapore after he successfully applied for the ASEAN Scholarship. After his studies at Raffles Instituition and Raffles Junior College, his love for art motivated him to pursue his interest at the National University of Singapore, where he earned a B.A. (Hons) in Architecture. During NUS, he continued to draw comics for comic publications and The Sunday Times. His popular weekly comic series “Huntsman” continued for 2 seasons. He won 3rd prize in both National Computing Board and Computimes Digital Art Competitions (1997). Hon Kit is the founder of Visualmediaworks and is sought after for projects that require the combination of his talents in both architectural design and visualisation skills.

EDMUND LOW

(b. 1965, Singapore)

Edmund Low grew up in Toa Payoh for more than 30 years until he got married and moved out to Farrer Park. Graduated from the National University of Singapore in Architecture (1994), he currently works as a full-time architect in a small private practice which he established in 2000. Edmund has always had an interest in photography. He has been taking photographs as a hobby since 1984. The photos shown in this exhibition were captured around 1986-87. Depicting scenes of Kampong Glam, Chinatown and Farrer Park, these photos not only document the built environment and neighbourhoods, but also the people who lived in these areas and their cultures. Some of these areas no longer exist; the intangible characteristics associated with them will eventually cease.

JEFFREY WANDLY

(b. 1964, Singapore)

Jeffrey Wandly captures heritage and historical landmarks with ink and acrylic on canvas. Fondly called “Building whisperer”, Jeffrey has exhibited in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Korea and Vietnam.
