This tour (18 Jan 2020) commences at the Tanglin Gate Visitor Services Counter. ‘Roadside Rojak’ follows on from her previous exhibition ‘Another Life’ held at Singapore Botanic Gardens in May 2017 and in February 2018. It features a new set of photographs taken on her morning walks in and around the vicinity of the Gardens. This has been a daily journey for the past seven years of walking, ‘seeing, and sharing, no matter where she may be traveling. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and to Kavita, there is incredible poetry on the pavements and roadsides. Each image is as found, she does not manipulate or arrange the compositions. Nothing is plucked, no photo shopping or filters are used and all images are taken with an iPhone to preserve the spontaneity. This series presents a mix of literal organic detritus, some rather abstract images while others capture the play of light and shadow presenting alternative ways of ‘seeing’. By slowing down our busy pace of ‘life’, becoming more aware of our surroundings, observing natural processes around us, we can all become more mindful about our own way of living, how we treat other inhabitants of this planet we call ‘ours’ and nurture rather than negate the Earth that sustains us all. Appreciating the little things that make up our environment hopefully will make us more caring towards the world around us and our fellow inhabitants. This tour is held in conjunct with the Singapore Art Week 2020 (11 - 19 Jan 2020). Learn about the Singapore Art Week at www.artweek.sg.
