exhibition singapour mon amour

Press Kit Singapour mon amour

Beyond the blazing power of Singapore, the artists of this city-state explore the social impact of its meteoric rise to first world nation that in fifty years has radically transformed their city and culture. To discover their gaze, their questioning, Singapour mon amour is conceived as a series of artistic interventions in Paris where the French public is invited, at each step, to appropriate an aspect of contemporary culture in Singapore.


Beirut Art Fair: Video Projects – Body Politics

18-21 September 2014, Beirut International Exhibition and Leisure Center (BIEL), Beirut

exhibition body politics

Silke Schmickl curated this year's Video Projects at Beirut Art Fair 2014. Body Politics is a programme consisting of 16 art films from the Middle East, North Africa, South and South East Asia that explores how contemporary artists comment on current political and social issues by means of their own bodies or those of others. Ranging from video art to experimental cinema, documentaries and performative experiences the selection highlights how the individual can react to the bigger and rigid body of our globalized societies by exploding conventional production modes and viewing patterns. Through personal, ironic and poetic approaches the artists invent a new visual language and take us on a colourful cinematic journey that reintroduces a notion of humanity.

Rising Images – Lowave celebrates its 10 years

23-31 March 2012, Cinéma du Réel/Centre Pompidou, Paris

exhibition cinema du reel

Since 2005, Lowave has been following the artistic trends of the Middle East and North Africa through our artists in the Resistance[s] collection and the numerous programs and exhibitions that we have been involved in. From Europe to the United States, passing through Africa and Asia, these images were detained, marked, publically questioned and have brought to light other realities than those offered by traditional media.


Lowave Exhibitions

Lowave has curated and produced exhibitions since 2008. Often inspired by our research projects and publications, these projects have been realised in close collaboration with international exhibition spaces. Some, such as Resistance[s] at the 3rd Triennial of Guangzhou, responded to invitations from major art events, others, more intimate, paid tribute to Lowave's unique art identity.
