Mythologies is a work of art by Jack Tan that explores various day-to-day Singaporean obsessions or concerns through a series of mythological characters based on the idea of the Japanese Yōkai (妖怪), or supernatural monsters. Exploring myth-making as a spatial, visual, performative and pedagogical activity, Jack Tan presents eight new mythological creatures through a choreographed children’s lantern parade, and public installations of flags and lanterns at Singapore Art Week 2016.
With the theme A State In Play, SingaPlural 2018 is a celebration of the indeterminacy of process and the stage of experimentation and work even before design sets in. The design direction draws inspiration from the process of prototyping and experimentation. Line elements feature across the festival identity’s as a connective and adaptable visual device that is presented in different configurations.
