床事---A thing or two about the Bed is the brainchild of curator Tang Ling Nah:
" With this exhibition, I am inviting 8 artists, designers and other creatives to explore the bed at different perspectives and meanings—whether it is literal or figurative—and to examine it with respect to concerns such as private versus public spaces, the tangible and the intangible, human relationships and emotions, state of rest and action; life and death, etc. It can be an investigation into the meaning of beds in daily life and the connections between all the beds we occupy physically and metaphorically over a lifetime. "
There will be a special storytelling performance by Kamini Ramachandran (for adult audiences aged 16 years above only) where she explores stories from fairy and folk tales that revolve around The Bed.
This visual arts exhibition showcases 9 works, with accompanying programmes such as artists’ talks and a storytelling session for adults, to explore the bed in its different perspectives and meanings—whether it is literal or figurative. The works, presented in drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation and performance, examine the bed with respect to concerns such as private versus public spaces, the tangible and the intangible, human relationships, the state of consciousness and unconsciousness, rest and action; life and death, realities and memories. It goes beyond looking at the bed as a place for rest and intimacy. In short, bed matters.
