a pocket dictionary of non-understanding
105 × 148mm
This publication was produced as part of an exhibition called Configurations. Configurations is a site-specific installation centred around the idea of lingering, of being slow to disappear. The installation consists of various assemblages of found and readily available objects that seemingly obstruct the viewer's movements, yet simultaneously invite the viewer into its web of a slowburning, strange and precarious gathering of objects. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, elements in the installation will be rearranged by the artist, rendering different permutations of the work on different days. The work is at once a tribute to the ecology of objects that are believed to be just as alive as we are, as well as a collapse of rational understanding.
a pocket dictionary of non-understanding / Genevieve Leong
Genevieve Leong (b.1992) is a visual artist whose practice attempts to visualise the intangible. She is often intrigued by emotions that come in quietness and how that same quietness transforms common places into unfamiliar spaces. The starting point of her work is often image-based, and the image then becomes a trigger point in realising the visualisation of the intangible through other varied elements like installation, text, moving image.
Genevieve Leong completed her BA Fine Art (Photography & Digital Imaging) at Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design & Media (NTU, ADM), Singapore. She is due to graduate in June 2019 from MA Contemporary Art Practice (Critical Practice) at the Royal College of Art (RCA), London.
