Unfolding through various materials, including found objects, clay and sand, d3ar succ3ss0r presents imprints of contemporary found objects alongside a fabricated archaeological site and post-excavation tools to speculate the examination of remnants from our present by individuals from the future. Conceived according to the principles of stratigraphy—the study of layered materials deposited over time—the works attempts to demonstrate the interconnected relationships between human relations, physical environments and archaeological methodologies. In line with Fazleen’s current interest in archiving present-day digital debris and web-based culture, the exhibition’s title draws upon leetspeak, a coded spelling system and language used in informal communications on the internet.
The practice of Fazleen Karlan (b.1993, Singapore) lies at the intersections of artmaking and archaeological methods. Drawn to overlooked histories, changing physical landscapes and the rise of digital cultures, Fazleen often reassembles fragments of materials from different time frames to construct personal and societal realities. In 2021, Fazleen’s works were presented at exhibitions, including Between the Living and the Archive and Pivot Point, both at Gillman Barracks. She also participated in Time Passes, National Gallery Singapore (2020). Fazleen is currently a Post-Excavation Technician, with the Archaeology Unit at the Temasek History Research Centre, ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute.
Fazleen Karlan would like to thank:
