3 new art exhibitions and plays to catch in October 2018

Now showing at Gajah Gallery Singapore, UOB Art Gallery, and Drama Centre Theatre.


    Singapore artist Kayleigh Goh, 24, explores how spaces and places affect the way people think and feel in her first solo show at Gajah Gallery.

    She says: "The inevitable negativity that we face in life can sometimes be overwhelming. Through the spaces I've constructed, I hope that it can be a comfort, a hug, a protector, giving calm to an overwhelmed nervous soul."

    Goh uses materials such as wood and cement, and works in muted tones of grey and beige.

    "I wanted the painting to be very neutral," she says, adding that this would allow the painting to have a different effect on the viewer each time he or she looks at it.

    While somewhat cold, the spaces Goh depicts do have a warmth to them, which she compares to "having a hot tea in winter, or a hot shower after a long winter walk".

    "I try to strike a balance - they are not particularly bright or lonely," she says.

    WHERE: Gajah Gallery Singapore, 03-04, 39 Keppel Road, Tanjong Pagar Distripark
