Between Home and Home presents a fresh look at Singapore through the eyes of fourteen young artists working in photography and film. Ranging from meditations on the urban landscape to intimate portraits, these works explore notions of identity, place, and relationships, creating visual stories that articulate conversations with space and community. With subjects running the gamut from the skateboarding community in Singapore to the neon lights of video arcades, Between Home and Home signals a youthful communing with personal memory and experience, and a search for self and belonging.
The works in this exhibition are an outcome of the Noise Art Mentorship, which ran from June to December 2016, pairing artists with established professionals working in the arts. The mentors for the programme are Ang Song Nian, Edwin Koo, Jean Qingwen Loo, Liao Jiekai, and Roy Zhang.
