What is Not Visible is Not Invisible
Featuring selected artworks from the French
Regional Collections of Contemporary Art (FRAC)
National Museum of Singapore, Exhibition Galleries, Basement
Until 19 February 2017
What is Not Visible is Not Invisible broadly surveys the imaginary and the temporary through selected artworks from the French Regional Collections of Contemporary Art (FRAC). The title and design of this exhibition take inspiration from the artwork of the same title by French artist Julien Discrit. The
visual paradox initiated in this modest yet profound work sets the premise for the deep-seeded themes that resonate throughout the exhibition.
The 34 artworks by 32 French and international artists navigate a transient journey through both the philosophical and the physical by means of unconventional approaches in art-making. Together, the artworks encourage the audience to interact with and explore the intangible, the emotional and the volatile relationship between the abstract, the organic and the structured.
