“Gerald is an apt marginal figure who fits Edward Said’s representation of an intellectual: someone who visibly represents a standpoint of some kind, and someone who makes articulate representations to his public despite all sorts of barriers. The standpoint of some kind refers to the prevalence of colonial ideology that attempts to construct a homogeneous and negative influence on society.”
A self-taught artist in his own right, Gerald Leow’s background in sociology does play a part in his artistic process where situations and behavioural traits of society are critically assessed. In this case, his abiding interest is in questioning the seeming rise of a popular culture and pondering on its demerits.
There’s Something About Me
For the 2nd year of The Substation’s Associate Artist Research Programme (AARP), our current batch of Associate Artists will be inviting emergent artists to present their work in a monthly series of lecture-presentations. An expansion to the AARP, There’s Something About Me is a new platform for our Associate Artists to introduce artists whom they personally believe in, and initiate dialogue and sharing within the artists and public community about their works.
