Curatorial Project: 床事―A Thing or Two about the Bed (6 September till 3 November 2013)@FOST Gallery, Gillman Barracks, Singapore

This visual arts exhibition showcases 9 works, with accompanying programmes such as artists’ talks and a storytelling session for adults, to explore the bed in its different perspectives and meanings—whether it is literal or figurative. The works, presented in drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation and performance, examine the bed with respect to concerns such as private versus public spaces, the tangible and the intangible, human relationships, the state of consciousness and unconsciousness, rest and action; life and death, realities and memories. It goes beyond looking at the bed as a place for rest and intimacy. In short, bed matters.
