Art Plural Gallery is pleased to present Flux, an important collective exhibition featuring more than 20 artists working with various media such as painting, sculpture, drawings and photography. Focusing on their most recent works, the exhibition will run from January 17 to February 28, 2014 and will be unveiled during Art Stage and Singapore booming artistic week.

Flux underlies the plural identity of the gallery, bridging East and West and fostering dialogue between cultures, temporalities and artistic expressions and mediums. Flux aims to visit the flow of energy stirring the creative languages of the selected contemporary artists. The exhibition pays tribute to the creative selection of the gallery featuring works by Fabienne Verdier, Bernar Venet, Ian Davenport, Pablo Reinoso, Fu Lei, Chun Kwang Young or Doug and Mike Starn, offering interesting echoes and correspondences.

Flux also celebrates a new selection of artists including American artist Jedd Novatt. Sculptor of international renown, Jedd Novatt plays with gravity, weight and balance piling open-space squares and overlapping unequal edges. Monumental sculptures pave international indoor and outdoor sites daringly entering in relation with space. Jedd Novatt seizes the raw qualities of materials, such as steel or bronze, to magnify their own notions of purity, power, permanence or stoicism. Instability and irregularity engagingly give rhythm to the cubic matrixes liberated from geometry as the latter is deconstructed, dislocated and emptied. The complexity of the structure defying physics and human apprehension sets new hypothesis in the history of abstract sculpture placing doubt in the centre of the artistic quest.

Recent artworks by Singapore artist Sherman Ong will also be unveiled. Filmmaker, photographer and visual artist, Sherman Ong develops a wide corpus on various themes linked by his photographic fragile and moving aesthetics. Human figures evolving in disrupted public places and overwhelmed by the changing nature of space – affected by the monsoon, the wildness or the bundling up of urban sites, seem to be looking for a localized identity. Seeking relationships and belongings, characters are often immortalized in action as if the latter was a unique conveyor of meaning, the only common ground in such a varied and fluid environment. Is space escaping or are humans running away from it? Sherman Ong patterns and unfolds this recurrent question structured by the paradoxical human quest and suspicion to infrastructures.

Flux also features works by Agathe de Bailliencourt. French artist living in Berlin, Agathe de Bailliencourt has two different artistic approaches that continuously feed each other: she works in her studio on canvas, paper or linen but also outdoors directly onto urban space, architecture or nature. The recurrence of multiple patterns in her work such as the straight line or the sentence “Je m’en fous” (literally: I don’t care) seems to tend to an unreachable reproducible horizon of freedom, defining another spatiality, a readable landscape. Nature and paint are in constant dialogue in her work as she applies paint on spaces or infuses nature on paper. The construction of a space where nature and artificiality, inside and outside meet, seems to form the precise and determined destination of Agathe de Bailliencourt’s on-going both artistic and physical research.

“We are delighted to feature such an important exhibition offering the audience a large panel of contemporary artists whom Art Plural Gallery promotes and believes in. Flux is an opportunity to frame the gallery’s identity and allow our artists, expressing themselves with such varied mediums, to enter in an interesting dialogue.” – Frederic de Senarclens, director of Art Plural Gallery.
