This September\, Nona Garcia will be the final artist to show in Silverlens&rsq uo\; first Pasong Tamo Extension gallery\, before the gallery moves down th e street to its new building in Lapanday \;Centre. In the ten years sin ce Silverlens started the warehouse gallery model\, only three artists have successfully used all the spaces for a single show&mdash\;Arturo Luz\, Les lie de Chavez\, and Gabriel Barredo. Garcia ends this list with Fall Le aves After Leaves Fall. Last seen in Silverlens Manila as part of the group show The \;Midnight \;Marriage (2013) with Patricia Perez Eustaquio and Maria Taniguchi\, Garcia takes over all the spaces.&nbs p\;

\n

The artist moved to Baguio City t hree years ago\, and this show marks that move and the intangible milestone s since\, for both the artist and Silverlens. Garcia uses the elements&mdas h\;water\, air\, fire\, and earth&mdash\;as markers for these milestones.\n

Garcia will be showing all paintings. Water and air stand face to face in one of the galleries: two murals face-t o-face\, one sea (Before The Sea\, 2012) and the other\, sky ( Before the Sky\, 2016). Not the first time that either has been shown\ , but the first time they are shown together\, in the way the artist origin ally intended. As earth\, there is an 8x10-foot painting of a wall in Ifuga o that doubles barely visible as a cantilevered stairway\, a poetic nod to getting somewhere without realizing it. As fire\, she presents abstract pai ntings of the remains of a recent fire that destroyed the Silverlens storag e facility containing 217 pieces of art. Signaling the transformation post- destruction\, pointing to the proverbial phoenix.

\n

For both Nona and Silverlens\, this is a sentimental show that marks the end of something\, and points to the beginning of another.

\n

Fall Leaves After Leaves Fall wil l be on view from August 27 to September 17 at Silverlens\, 2/F YMC Bldg. 2 \, 2320 Don Chino Roces Ave. Extension\, Makati City. For inquiries\, conta ct info@silverlensgalleries.com or (02) 816 0044. \;\n

ShanghART Singapore will hold a group exhibition titled &ldquo\;The Dynamics&rdquo\; from 20 September to 30 November 2016\, featuring a range of multi-media art works by Hu Jiemin g\, Jiang Pengyi\, Lu Lei\, Shao Yi\, Xu Zhen\, Yang Zhenzhong and Zhang Di ng.

The exhibition will be presented in a dynamic way with a var iety of moving images and installations. We hope viewers will be able to in teract with the works and amongst each other under such a dynamic circumsta nce.

Artistic creation is a process of materializing one&rsquo\; s imagination and creativity. In some way\, imagination invokes inspiration through some medium\, which can be anything at all: a mosquito\, a woman&r squo\;s breath\, light and shadow\, a beautiful moment&hellip\;Following th e imagination\, one&rsquo\;s creativity will go even further\, to decode th e inspiration into a brand new self-expression. This process taps into the organic performance\, &ldquo\;Creativity is the strongest example of the dy namic nature of intelligence\, and it can call on all areas of our minds an d being.&rdquo\;①

This exhibition puts particular emphasis on Ne w Media Art\, or so-called Time-Based Art. This kind of art works uses the passage of and the manipulation of time as the essential element\, and ofte n includes movement and sound\, to engage viewers involved in the final par t of the creative process at the point of presentation. For artists\, the i dea of reactivity and interactivity is also considered as inherent to art w orks\; viewers take great role enhancing the concept of art. In other words \, it is the dynamic time\, viewers&rsquo\; interaction and synchronic cons ciousness that make individual perceptual expression eventually form a vivi d artistic filed.

ShanghART artist collective BI RDHEAD (SONG Tao and JI Weiyu)\, started their six-month Southeast Asia Res idency program from July 2016. They scheduled to travel around Thailand\, M yanmar\, Laos\, Cambodia\, Vietnam and other places\, and they will come to Singapore to exhibit their art works created during the journey. Moreover\ , selecting Singapore as the last and most important stop in Southeast Asia \, BIRDHEAD will conduct artists talk with Singaporean artists\, which will definitely deepen bilateral exchanges in the field of arts\, as well as cu lture and mutual understanding.

BIRDHEAD&rsquo\;s early works co nsist of photographic images of everyday life in their hometown of Shanghai . From 2011\, they expanded the scoop of shooting to a broader prospective. Each action of gazing and shooting cuts out a space and a time\, which als o becomes a self-reflection\, and it is to say the thousands of photos are thousands times of self-reflection. This action seems to be an exploration of the outside world\; however\, it is in fact a study of our heart and a c onstant introspection.

In their opinion\, shooting is only a mea ns of expressing emotion\, and it is both visual content and various materi als that form into BIRDHEAD Language. Through constant photo shooting\, sel ecting and editing photos to create connection and rhythm\, through studyin g the traditional and current techniques\, fabricating and mounting photos\ , to eventually carry and express our emotions in the time we live in.

For BIRDHEAD\, Southeast Asia trips may be regarded as an extension and reflection to a greater level. In an &ldquo\;otherness" perspective\, a rtists observe and record their own traces to explore various textures of l ife. They are tapping into proposition of "self" from far and beyond. Chian g Mai\, Ho Chi Minh\, Bagan\, Phu Quoc Island&hellip\;all places they trave lled contributes an ongoing juxtaposition of traditional and modern\, regio nal and individual influences\, foreign "otherness" and native consciousnes s. Through shooting in Southeast Asia\, their world is being constructed in to multiple layers\, among which they find a better way to connect with the whole world more directly and more deeply.

Artist Introduction< br />BIRDHEAD (est. 2004)\, is an artist collective - JI Weiyu (1980) and S ONG Tao (1979)\, were both born in Shanghai\, where they also reside and wo rk today.

'Posed' brings together sculptures by contemporary Australian artist Linda Marrinon with selected bronzes from the Collection. \;

\n

M arrinon is known for her figurative sculptures that connect to European scu lpture from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. She sculpts in plaster \, a material traditionally reserved for studies for bronze works. Her subj ects are often humorous and imaginative\, rather than mythological or memor ial. \;Together these sculptures show the artists' familiarity with ana tomy\, gesture and posture in works spanning the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries. Marrinon's contemporary figures converse with earlier works by Edgar Degas\, Alfred Gilbert and Daphne Mayo while bringing a playful and s peculative response to the genre of figurative sculpture.

A selection of paintings\, vid eo works and sculpture from the contemporary Asian collection is on display \, including works by Chatchai Puipia\, Pinaree Sanpitak and Charwei Tsai\, as well as Yuan Goang-Ming's three-channel video installation Disappea ring Landscape &ndash\; Passing II 2011.

\n

Disappearing Landscape &ndash\; Passing II \;is three -channel HD video installation by Taiwanese artist Yuan Goang-Ming. Yuan of ten draws on personal experience in creating his works\, and this powerful installation reflects on the relationships and links between his own past\, present and future.

\n

This work was cr eated at a time of great emotion in Yuan's life\, as his father passed away four months after his daughter was born. A meditation on time and memory\, the film shows Yuan's home and the surrounding landscape through continuou s linear sequences\, using the movement of the camera and shifting film spe eds to evoke acts of seeing\, feeling and remembering. The work builds on t he contrast between the warmth of his family life &ndash\; including the re construction of his late father's study\, his own apartment and the camphor tree in his garden &ndash\; with unsettling scenes of the sea\, speeding r oads and the debris accumulated in abandoned neighbouring houses.
