In ‘another diorama’, artist Hu Yun examines the limits and expansions of working with the sculptures of the late artist Shui Tit Sing by orienting towards available archives and artworks. It is in this exhibition where Hu Yun extends his historiographic interest on everyday cosmologies that are incarnated by the process of woodcarving. This exhibition continues his Singapore Biennale work that reflects on the original 1980s dioramas of Singapore history, inquiring on how the storytelling found in craft tradition becomes present in contemporary practices.
