Rather than the other meanings of intrude, interrupt or enter without consent or by force (which in some senses we have already done by inserting ten truckloads of paintings and performing some renovations on the space), the exhibition seeks to break in our new unit in the mounting of gallery shows and art activities. 20B Mosque Street is a comfortable, spacious shophouse space on the third level, which is our third premises within Chinatown in our eleven years of existence, and the exhibition seeks to acclimatize the locality to the display and viewing of contemporary art.
Besides helping to break in our new exhibition hall, Boo Sze Yang breaks in new ways of perceiving shopping malls as the cathedrals of our time. Jacqueline Ng breaks into our roster of artists with abstracted works distinct from her usual figurative forms. The canvases of TR853-1 are already broken, and seek to break our understanding of paintings as a two-dimensional art form. Yeo Siak Goon, Lu Yi Fei, Oh Chai Hoo and Chua Chon Hee break in the new year with new work specifically for our inaugural show. Let the exhibitions begin!
