DECK is proud to present the first solo exhibition by Singapore artist Lai Yu Tong this September.
‘It’s strange I feel like I’ve seen this one before‘ is the first solo exhibition by Singaporean artist Lai Yu Tong. The exhibition features works that use a local newspaper as source material to examine image culture, consumption, and living in Singapore. Working with images in a time of image saturation, Yu Tong employs gestures of collection, appropriation, reduction, and arrangement as primary modes of artistic production.
Lai Yu Tong is an artist who works mainly with images. His practice is influenced by the things he sees, things he buys, things he eats, things he throws away, and other things. He studied at the School of the Arts and later at LASALLE College of the Arts, both in Singapore.
