“A love letter to devotion and intimacy, an ode to togetherness, and homage to the claustrophobia of surveillance capitalism...  DE:VOTED is an immersive mashup of light, sound, performance, and technology.

In a single continuous gesture of Set-up, Presentation, and Deinstallation within the space of seven days over Singapore Art Week, the exhibition promises a cloistered experience of moving parts and performances, installations and auratic objects.

DE:VOTED’s sense of evolving communality - played out through a week-long programme of workshops, guided tours, and space activations - is further juxtaposed with a sense of geographical stretch, through INSTINC’s cross-border collaboration with art base camp in Tokyo, corresponding via simultaneous streaming of the happenings at Helutrans.”


In short,

7 days | 9 artists | 3 workshops | 9 brand-new site specific works.
 
DE:VOTED... an immerse communion with light, sound, and performance. 
 
Set-up, Presentation, and De-installation... dissected and opened up within a single continuous gesture over two cities.
