Blueprints for the forest: An exploration into tropical aesthetics
Throughout history and up till today, representations of the tropical forest have been motivated by reductive notions, producing images and narratives which condense the forest’s rich abundance, its myriad of life, narratives, forms and symbols into a pale facsimile of itself – either transformed into idealistic cliché and trite symbolism, or worse, dry observation or reports driven by forest ethnography.
The project takes ‘topography’ as an underlying concept to critically examine the aesthetics of the tropical forest. It connects details to larger things – natural features to global stories, personal experience to cultural symbolism.
Blueprints for the forest: An exploration into tropical aesthetics is a work-in-progress presentation by Donna Ong that seeks to highlight the problems of tropical representation and invites the audience to explore alternative ways of description through the display and transformation of existing imagery. This exhibition is guest curated by Khim Ong.
Blueprints for the forest: An exploration into tropical aesthetics runs from 30 Jan to 17 Mar 2021 at Earl Lu Gallery, Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, LASALLE. Find out more here.
