Entang Wiharso at Singapore Art Museum Featured on Channel NewsAsia

Entang Wiharso unveils a new major installation at the Singapore Art Museum in their latest group exhibition, Odyssey: Navigating Nameless Seas. Wiharso’s colourful and detailed installation Breathing Together combines personal stories with his country’s modern history. The explosion of vivid imagery is seemingly tied together by drawings of coral-like structures, which highlight Indonesia’s identity as an archipelago.

Featuring commissioned artworks, artist loans and works from the Singapore Art Museum collection, Odyssey: Navigating Nameless Seas invites visitors into Earth’s watery realms, as seen through the eyes of contemporary artists. Through the centuries, over numerous expeditions, and with ever-increasing sophistication in science and technology, humankind has sailed the seven seas and plunged into the very depths of oceanic trenches. Yet there remains much to be discovered of this alien world.

Hyperallergic Reviews Entang Wiharso
Seph Rodney reviews Entang Wiharso "Promising Land" on Hyperallergic. Here is an excerpt: There’s something rightly inscrutable about Entang Wiharso’s “Double Protection” (2015), on display at Marc Straus.
