A R R A N G I N G, an exhibition by Atelier Hoko, Singapore Design Festival 2009.
i love this installation, especially this set of ‘archives’. i guess that’s because i am one of those who loves to arrange and record down things and thoughts all the time. Oh and i love anything handwritten.
i have to say that i was quite disappointed with the overall exhibition this year. Not because of the exhibit works but the attitude towards the event. i went on the last day of the exhibition at The City Hall (30 Nov) and saw: 1) Some of the exhibits looked like they had been neglected, the conditions were not good. 2) A few rooms were not yet open around noon time when the opening hours is 10am – 7pm. 3) Some exhibits had already been cleared. Same for The Arts House (exhibition from 20 Nov – 4 Dec). The big standing poster at the entrance shouted Singapore Design Festival but i couldn’t find any exhibition at all. i was told that they had cleared the exhibits the night before when checked with the guys at the ticket counter.
i don’t think i should be punished (so were those tourists who thought they managed to catch the exhibition on the last day) just because i couldn’t make it earlier. i kind of lost interest in the rest of the exhibitions, don’t think i will go to the rest. i’ve only took a few pictures this time round which is rare. Usually, i am always busy taking down notes and pictures of interesting artwork. Well, hope it gets better next time round.
