About the Event

Conceived in response to the sonic and physical space of the Community Wall, loop / pool encompasses a series of works that harnesses the adjacent escalator’s ambient sound and cyclical mechanical motion as a starting point to explore ideas of repetition, states of transition and reservoirsof temporal flows. The works comprise LED panels embedded within digital prints, tanks of water filled with slow-releasing dye from butterfly pea flowers, a moving image work of abstract insetsand an audio piece of environmental sounds. Programmed to unfold in real time and anchored in a closed loop of change, the artworks on endless repeat echo the whirs and circulations of its mechanical antecedent. 


Working at the intersections of art, music, engineering and computing, the practice of Huijun Lu (b.1994, Singapore) culminates in kinetic installations, sculptures, moving images, soundscapes and performances. Consistent in the works are mechanisms and circuits that the artist devises and builds to examine the function and utility of objects and observations on the unnoticed in our surrounding environments. Lu has participated in numerous exhibitions in Singapore, including Between the Living and the Archive, Gillman Barracks (2021) ON/OFF/SCREEN, DECK (2021) and Pneuma: Of Spirituality in Contemporary Age, Stamford Arts Centre (2020).
