Echo is a response to humanity’s relationship with the world, each other and ourselves. The exhibition explores AAIS 2021-2022’s interpretation of the sacrifices, the achievements and the meditative reflections of the echoing ideas of our world. Echo considers what it feels to be reminiscent of what we once had, what we lost and what we have now. It reflects how we transmit our reaction to acknowledging the reality of our intangible experiences to the physical and virtual worlds. The gallery space will feature: Power Off, Fantasia, Reconstruction.

Reconstruction

We wish for a "Reconstruction". We live in a loop, an endless cycle between growth and death.

We long to relive the blissful moments of our lives. Where we weren't struggling with our inner demons while watching the world burn at our hands. A time when we weren't so aware of all the hardships of our political, societal, environmental conditions. How do we rebuild the bonds that have been broken? How do we trust each other to face, embrace, and confront the inequalities and divisions of our world?

Fantasia

What is the Fantasia of virtual and physical spaces?

“Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes, a butterfly.” ― ZhuangziZhuang Zi, a Chinese Philosopher, reflected on the state of our consciousness when we dream. He argues that the antithesis of living might not be completely opposite to each other. Fantasia is a performance that shadows the intimate relationship between life and death, misfortune and happiness, light and darkness, dream and consciousness. Our brain designs and imagines this intangible space that blurs reality's physical and tangible borders. The limit belongs to our subconscious mind. Our conscious existence is forever bound to our physical boundaries.

Power Off

Power Off is an opportunity. A state of pause and deconstruction of authority.

This performative installation questions our dependency on technologies. Who are we if our technology was striped away from us? The process by which a person becomes deeply involved in society is also like a continuous process of becoming accustomed to their conditional reflexes to various external stimuli. The exhibition aims to reflect on the conceptual conditioning of what being a human truly is in 2022.
