Kimberly Shen & Lilpinkdevil
End Times
15 October - 3rd December 2007
Citylink Mall

The omnipresence of signs is representative of a symbolic world we live in. Its infiltration into our daily lives with the usage of text and visuals unknowingly guide us into blind pursuit. The abundance of signs signifies the presence of an authoritative and developed country, one that directs subjects and demarcates spaces.

Challenged by the notion of window displays in shopping malls, vs. the display of art, Tickleart is seen as a transit, bridging the consumerist society and the contemporary art one. To utilize a space void of signs, the audience journeys through this passageway, struck by the contradicting familiarity of the emulated visuals of road signs and the innocuous jumbled text.

We shall show them Our signs in the horizons and in themselves
until it is clear to them it is the truth (Surah Al Fussilat 41:53)

Lilpinkdevil toys with the idea of ‘unseen’ signs that are considered mandatory yet dismissed by society, while Kimberly subtly reconstructs letters to form seemingly cryptic text.

A cyclical approach will be initiated, reflecting a conflict of symbolical traits in the global contemporary society.

Much gratitude to tickleart, national arts council, wink and splash for making 'End Times' possible.

Dark Ages Devils;

May the superficiality die and let the legacy of its idea live...
