Through The Looking Glass at 2902 Gallery, Singapore. Till 7th May 2010

That’s the effect of living backwards,” the Queen said kindly: “it always makes one a little giddy at first.” — Through The Looking Glass, Lewis Carroll

The Annexe Gallery and 2902 Gallery is proud to present a collaborative exhibition featuring works by eight gifted photographers from Malaysia and Singapore, enabling a visual dialogue between the two countries. Thematically, the works by Malaysians deal with the photographers’ relationships to the country and the imaging/imagining of this home.

Responding to representations of national aspirations and terror, they play with degrees of irony, wit and personal involvement. On the other hand, the works by Singaporeans present distinctive and acutely clear voices on their affiliation with the land revealing detachment, exploration of identity in relation to their environment, nostalgia and memories all within a spatial context.

Collectively, the single thread of commonality that these images share is that in communicating a sense of space and place, their works reveal the photographers’ relationship and response to their environment.
