The Third Script:
BOO JUNFENG & LINDA C.H. LAI two-person exhibition
Singapore—Pearl Lam Galleries is pleased to present The Third Script, an exhibition featuring works by Singaporean filmmaker Boo Junfeng and Hong Kong artist Linda C.H. Lai, opening on 7 May, 2016. Boo and Lai will come together as two independent artists to present two different ways of deconstructing a narrative. Comprising a site-specific installation and time-based artwork, curated by David H.Y. Chan, this show demonstrates the Galleries’ commitment to supporting experimental projects and providing a collaborative platform that stimulates cross-cultural dialogue.
Both Hong Kong and Singapore, young post-colonial city-states, are actively working to secure historical identities through a linear historical narrative. The Third Script presents two alternatives to this linear construction. By experimenting with the construction and use of micro-narratives, this exhibition reflects on how our identity and recollection of the past are formed.
