Chan Hampe Galleries
Chan Hampe Galleries, located at Raffles Hotel in Bras Basah Cultural District, is a collaboration between Angeline Chan and Benjamin Milton Hampe, whose combined past experience in art-oriented not for profit art organizations, art councils, and galleries has proved beneficial in running their own gallery which to date has been quite successful in increasing the exposure and value of Singaporean contemporary art. For Bazaar Art Jakarta they will bring two of their established artists. Dawn
Ng, is an artist who has left an indelible imprint in a variety of format—including photography, collage, illustrations, and installations—and her art projects like I Fly Like Paper Get High Like Planes, Walter
(a guerrilla installations of an inflatable bunny across Singapore, now a permanent collection at Singapore Art Museum), and Thirty One Kinds of Wonderful were unanimously praised. Then there’s South Korean’s Si Jae Byun, recipient of 2013’s Phillips Collections Emerging Artist Prize, whose penchant for juxtaposing opposing realities sort of becomes her trademark and has had solo shows in New York and Washington DC.
