9 Unconcretised Projects
Nine projects could not be realised. Nine projects were not meant to be. For this talk, Vertical Submarine will discuss the circumstances that made these proposals impossible.
Vertical Submarine is an art collective from Singapore. Their works include installations, drawings and paintings that involve text, storytelling and an acquired sense of humour. In 2010, they laid siege to the Singapore Art Museum and displayed medieval instruments of torture, including a fully functional guillotine. In 2012, they exhibited Hokkien vulgarities for the cultured visitors of Art Stage Singapore and Art HK, and was selected to participate in the Gwangju Biennale. In 2014, they pretended to care about kindness and was misunderstood to be propagating animal abuse. Immediately after, they ran to Turkey, Istanbul, for an exhibition at Arter, and returned to Singapore in 2015 for an installation about a semi-illiterate British serial killer who was the first Ang Moh hung on this island.
