What Artists Read Vol. 8: Shyue Woon


What Artists Read is back for the month of August, featuring Singaporean photographer-architect Shyue Woon. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, this session will be live streamed on DECK’s FB Live Page.

Shyue Woon (b.1975), trained as an Architect, uses photography as a tool to explore subtext in the built environment. In his daily practice as an architect, he turns aspirations and dreams into constructible reality. At night, he reverses the process – deconstructing reality and spaces into fiction and figments of imagination.

What Artists Read is an artist-led book sharing programme that hopes to ignite an innate interest to explore books beyond conventional reading material. This programme provides audiences with the opportunity to hear from artists on books that inspire and shape their practice and voice. Held in DECK’s own library of photobooks collected and donated from around the world, the sharing session also hopes to create an awareness of DECK’s resource-rich open library and to encourage a deeper engagement with books and photography.
