Come 25 September to 5 November 2016, STPl presents Japanese Artist Shinro Ohtake’s first solo-exhibition in Singapore entitled Paper – Sight.
The showcase at the gallery will focus on Ohtake’s employment of print methods and materials on his collage of found objects, images and scraps discarded from urban culture. Highlights include a series of large-scale fluorescent paper pulp paintings, a 320-page sculptural scrapbook consisting of 160 individual artworks and a parallel ongoing Scrapbook series of 68 artist books spanning nearly four decades.
His artworks are based on the theme of memories and an archaeology of objects through the assemblage of sculptures and artefacts.
Ohtake’s expertise ranges from a wide oeuvre that encompasses painting, sculpture, photography, large-scale assemblage pieces and experimental music and videos.
