Join us in the moment between all that is calm and chaotic!!!
We present the exciting work of UK-based artists, Jamie Lau, Cindie Gottlieb-Cheung and Andrew Lim in a sculptural show, developed by CFCCA, that takes the project title ?Tipping Point? as its theme.
The work exhibited is the result of an on-going dialogue between the three artists, who have shared working methods and exchanged ideas about the medium of sculpture. They discussed how sculpture could take on a wider meaning, as a term to describe an approach to working, rather than a medium bounded by traditional materials. Each artist shows their own interpretation of this, presenting a narrative played out in space through unconventional methods.
Lau takes global news as a starting point for his sculptural forms, Gottlieb-Cheung translates female representation from objects and gestures into video, and Lim discovers, through reconfigurations of everyday objects, new narratives formed by the very process of ?making?. Each focuses on a moment of change; on the limbo state between stability and chaos, inviting audiences to become part of the tipping point.
