Time: 11am – 7pm
From the winner of 2008’s Blockx Color Prize, comes the highly eclectic French visual artist, Elodie Chandernagor. In her latest exhibition, “I AM YOU”, she challenges the illusion of self and explores the divinity of the human body in this powerful photography exhibition.
What defines an artist? Who is the artist? The quest for identity within and outside art worlds continue to befuddle. Chandernagor believes that both the individual and our collective history leave a mark on architecture, on surroundings, faces and even skin. In this colourful collection of artworks, she explores the relationship between architecture and the human body. Chandernagor studies why identity and subset behaviours are apparent in the first place – impacting viewers intellectually, physiologically, and sometimes even spiritually.
As we enter an age where artistic mediums become more transient and malleable, this exhibition provides a space where the artist is able to find a balance between paint, art, and the body. Approaching this concept, Chandernagor seeks to find and evoke knowledge from the audience. She daringly hopes to answer the question: “What if both the audience and the artist took turns to be sources of inspiration from each other, as both actors, and spectators?”
