'Countershadows (tactics in evasion)' is a curatorial project by ICA Singapore Assistant Curator Melanie Pocock. The exhibition and catalogue explore art characterised by its evasive concepts and aesthetics. Referring to the graphic technique of countershading, in which gradations of colour are used to camouflage a subject or object, the exhibition considers how exposure and concealment are often intertwined, each paradoxically 'revealing' the qualities and axioms of the other. Featuring existing and commissioned installation, video, sculpture, photography and drawing by artists from Singapore, 'Countershadows (tactics in evasion)' creates a dynamic play between the artworks and the gallery space, encouraging viewers to look within, around, and beyond, for insight.
Artists include Heman Chong, Tamares Goh, Ho Rui An, Sai Hua Kuan, Jeremy Sharma, Tan Peiling, Robert Zhao Renhui (The Institute of Critical Zoologists).
