Chan Hampe Gal­leries

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - Exhibition Highlight - Dawn Ng

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.
