Lowave is pleased to announce 'Singapour mon amour', a Singaporean art showcase in Paris from 4 June to 12 July as part of 'Singapour en France – le Festival'

'Singapour mon amour' is an invitation to explore the contemporary Singaporean art scene through a series of interdisciplinary art events. Visitors are free to choose their own calendar of happenings including live performances at Église Saint-Merry, a visual art exhibition at Point Éphémère, avant-garde film screenings at La Cinémathèque française, a colloquium at musée du quai Branly and performative artist talks at Centre Pompidou.

We have the pleasure to welcome some of Singapore's most illustrious personalities in art and culture such as Ho Tzu Nyen, Sookoon Ang, Jason Wee, Bani Haykal, Ezzam Rahman, Urich Lau, Yue Han Teow, Jiekai Liao, William Phuan, Wenjie Zhang and Jeremiah Choy. Their participation will be enriched by the works of young talents like Nelson Yeo, Godwin Koay, Debbie Ding, Ruyi Wong and internationally recognized artists such as Ming Wong, Rajendra Gour, Zai Kuning, Philipp Aldrup, Chye Teck Chua and Nguan.

'Singapour mon amour' also encourages exchanges between Singaporean artists and intellectuals with their French counterparts. Hence, the programme involves guest speakers, co-curators and moderators such as Nicole Brenez, Catherine David, Kathryn Weir, Frédéric Keck, Marc Goldberg as well as collaborations with artists Pascal Battus, FOUDRE!, Christine Ott and Paul Régimbeau.

Each event was commissioned and curated by Silke Schmickl to exist individually while entering into discourse with the others. The subtle links that resonate between the different subjects, disciplines and practices on display are put into perspective so as to form a polyphonic and exceptional portrait of Singapore.

A 'Singapour mon amour' publication will be launched on end of June. More information about the events can be found on this website as well as and
