In this workshop, artist Sharmeen/Sifar will lead the participants to create a collective Rangoli-inspired design with text. The text will be a memory of a moment in time, when they felt hurt by words someone told to them, a memory of what age they were when this was said to them.

When Artists Caravan invited us to join the Genetic Landscape project in October last year, I didn’t realise it was going to take so long—not that it’s a bad thing! The slower pace is necessary because many artists have day jobs, and it is also good because there is a lot of time for everyone to think about the theme and work through their own processes of artmaking. Also, with the pandemic, everything just takes a longer time.
The Genetic Landscape exhibition is finally up! The artworks shown are developments from the ones in the zine, and as with the publication, there is a diverse range of interpretations of the theme as well as very different aesthetics. It’s also interesting to see all the artworks take form in a physical space.
Genetic Landscape exhibition is an expansion of concepts and ideas from our zine publication. Our zine contributors were invited to expand upon their investigation of Genetic Landscape into the physical space of Substation. Hence the exhibition will present largely newly developed art works – expansion from their works in the zine. Artists Caravan’s journerys aspire towards moments where dots connect and the gestalt are revealed. Similarly with Genetic Landscape, we want to expand the conversation of land and human to include perspective and stories from the eyes of its people, especially from the arts and cultural community.
Address: The Substation 45 Armenian Street Singapore 179936
Genetic Landscape is an independent full-coloured zine publication organized, edited and publish by Artists Caravan (AC), featuring 4 members from AC and 9 collaborators from our very own arts village. We chose the zine as an environment for this initiative primarily for the roots and spirit that zines embody. Genetic Landscape Issue 01’s theme engaged our collaborators to explore and exchange ideas – to propose solutions to rethink, reinvent and recover the social and cultural aspect of land and bodies.
