Title

Fazleen Karlan

Description

Combining fine arts training with her professional experience as a post-excavation technician, Fazleen Karlan intends to focus on further exploring the intersection of art and archaeology by experimenting with archaeological processes as a space for historical speculation, knowledge production, collaboration, and modes of reimagination.

Against Singapore’s persistent acceleration towards the future through redevelopment and modernisation, the artist is interested in the way certain memories are kept while others are discarded. From her point of view, “the past is more than objects waiting to be discovered; it is a series of perspectives waiting to be unearthed”.​ Investigating the present with the tools of archaeology, she plans to explore the physical sediments of contemporary life through a series of participatory sessions aimed at making, archiving, and combining fragments of the present into new scenarios, perspectives, and meanings.
