In a guiltless search for happiness, “Chronicle”, a collective exhibition of three emerging artists from Lebanon, Paula Chahine, Nayla Kai Saroufim and Marcel Rached, curated by Singapore’sSana Gallery, tells a beautiful story about dialogues;
Between the Middle East and the rest of the world;
Men and women;
People and the sea;
Children and parents;
Machines and us;
“Chronicle” is a commentary on our day and age of silent, loud, spiritual, material, overt, covert, direct and indirect connectedness and communication.
The three artists use different techniques, ranging from pop art combined with mixed media, acrylic on canvas and photography. Their fresh approaches combine lush layers of paint, ink, airbrush, watercolors, glow in the dark paint, LED lights and photography.
For two whole months art lovers in Singapore will be able to experience different dialogues at an exhibition aptly named “Chronicle”; an intriguing dialogue between the Middle East and the rest of the world.
Completed in 2011, Aamer designed this house in Singapore to curve like a boomerang so that all the bedrooms could have views of the waterfront. The geometry also allowed a twenty-five meter lap pool to be incorporated on one side at the ground level. This lap pool continues as a water feature that wraps around the living and dining spaces. Aamer also designed the main spaces of the first story to be fluid and continuous so that, upon entry, one could see the waterfront straightaway. The connection to the waterfront is further reinforced by a linear timber deck that extends from the house into the pier. The clients also felt that such a spatial articulation gives the house a sense of spacious and makes it appear to be much bigger than many other rectilinear houses on similar plots at Cove Grove, Sentosa.
