Chua Chye Teck

Dublin Core

Title

Chua Chye Teck

Description

A keen observer of nature and of the relationship between humans and the environment within Singapore’s fast-changing landscape, during the residency Chua Chye Teck will expand his lingering fascination for the overlooked by concentrating on weeds. Against the developmental emphasis on order, cleanliness, and control, weeds are often singled out as plants that grow in the wrong place where they can flourish in spite of being unwanted. In their resistance against human impulses to control and manicure nature, weeds are regarded by the artist as a manifestation of the beauty and resilience of wilderness and chaos. By observing both the physiology and formal qualities of weeds, Chua plans to experiment with a variety of light-sensitive and other photographic techniques to capture their intricate beauty and frame their value for nature and society.
