INSTINC and 1PROJECTS present a joint exhibition: Dark Was the Night We Found Light. As we the world over embark on a different and unknown future. Yet to overcome the remnants of a disquieting upstart to the second decade of the millennium. More often than not, the imminent reality of what is now and to come seems dark, uncertain and perhaps even fearsome.
We may face some of the most significant challenges our species has come upon, yet with these also comes the opportunity for broader and deeper reflection and change. The circumstances are fit for a collective turnaround. A significant shift in ways of life if we consider the impacts and imbalances these hold within our societies and planet.
Dark Was the Night We Found Light invites us to see and question the stark realities faced by many and possibly shed light on a future already here. Yet the exhibition brings about an expectancy of hope and light within the dark by presenting playful, humorous, oniric yet poignant and thought-provoking works.
The exhibition presents four artists Justin Lee (Singapore), Natalia Ludmila (Mexico), Prasert Yodkaew (Thailand) and Pornwipa Suriyakarn (Thailand). They are brought together by the parallels within their practices and works rather than nationalities. That is to say that the concerns explored in the exhibition are not limited to one region and pertain to us all.
