ARTNET: Global Emerging Art Finds Its Market at START Fair 2016 (15 September 2016)
A.I. was pleased to return to the third edition of START Art Fair 2016 & present a solo booth for WeiXin Chong (b.Singapore). The theme 'Debris' involved the ephemeral, both natural & artificial.
Excerpt taken from reportage by Hettie Judah for Artnet titled: "Global Emerging Art Finds Its Market at START Fair 2016":
"A solo presentation of work by the Singapore-born artist WeiXin Chong at London’s A.I. offered crisply scanned arrangements of debris found on the night streets of Paris in the series Toute La Nuit. Fragile objects floating on a lush black background, they are at once oneiric and prosaic, bringing together dead flowers, feathers, shattered glass, condom wrappers, and loose bolts. A delicate series of sketches, almost invisible on charcoal-grey paper, depict isolated examples of her family’s rumpled underwear, a gesture both affectionate and slightly troubling."
