Coded Conversations - An AGIP Show

LASALLE College of the Arts and The Substation presents Modest Operandi: Conversations in Transit by Hyrol Sami'on and 三 缺 一 Three Without One by Morine Liang. This joint­-exhibition is a culmination of the Arts Graduate Incubation Programme (AGIP), with the objective of giving fresh grads a boost in the first year of their artistic endeavour. 

Hyrol Sami'on and Morine Liang are two young graduates from the LASALLE BA(Hons) Fine Arts programme. They were selected and provided funding, studio space and mentorship from professional artists from 2015­-2016. Their mentors are artists, Loo Zihan and Ong Kian Peng.

Modest Operandi: Conversations in Transit by Hyrol Sami’on presents a series of secret recordings made by the artist while taking the MRT or bus. These conversations are presented as voyeuristic gestures through his artwork installation that is inspired by Instagram.

Morine Liang’s 三 缺 一 Three Without One takes as its starting point a collection of newspaper clippings by local tabloid newspaper, 新明日报Shin Min Daily News. These selected clippings, with articles ranging from beauty ads to stories of human affect, are the father’s messages to his daughter. In turn, the daughter responds to both content and medium as an artist.
