A Public Conversation on the occasion of the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia, The Geopolitical and the Biophysical: a structured conversation on Art and Southeast Asia in context is conceived as an extension to Charles Lim’s SEA STATE project presented at the Singapore Pavilion, and is in response to Okwui Enwezor’s curatorial theme for the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia: All the World’s Futures. The brochure’s design is conceived as an extension to Charles Lim’s SEA STATE project and presented at the Singapore Pavilion. The fan shape is an abstraction of the hull of a kolek boat, as well as a practical solution for attendees to use it as a hand-held fan.
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.
