DECK A.i.R #04: A Solo Exhibition by Hu Qiren – Dunman Higher

Event Navigation

DECK is proud to announce the opening of our fourth edition of Artist-in-Residency Exhibition! (A.i.R #04) Join us at the opening night of Hu Qiren’s solo exhibition at DECK on the 7th of August, at 7pm. Admission is free, refreshments will be provided.

This exhibition marks the first Singapore solo presentation of works by Hu Qiren (b. 1983, Singapore).

Employing satire to examine critical issues of our time, Qiren creates videos and installations that offer a subjective reading of contemporary life in Singapore.

Similar to other works in Qiren’s practice, the narratives and systems in his latest showcase interweave seemly disparate timelines into one another, forming a new language as a result.

The title of the show, Dunman Higher (2019), draws inspiration from Qiren’s personal experience with the ceaseless obsession with progress as comfort and the interconnectedness of cause and effect structures that complicate the notion of social consciousness and the production of value.

Together, the introspective works in the exhibition trace 3 major chapters of Qiren’s life and reveal how subtle shifting of the way we illustrate stories can challenge dominant social dogmas.
