72 Kō (Seasons)
SUNDARAM TAGORE SINGAPORE, GILLMAN BARRACKS UNTIL MAY 18, 2019
72 Kō (Seasons), is an exhibition of new and recent paintings, works on paper and leaf mandalas by New York and Los Angeles-based artist Miya Ando. Informed by the 72 seasons of an ancient Japanese calendar system, in which subtle, periodic occurrences of the natural world mark the passing year, the work in this show expands on the artist’s ongoing exploration into concepts of time and transition. The centerpiece of the exhibition – and the inspiration for the show’s title – is a vibrantly colorful, large-scale installation comprising 72 small, light-reflecting metal paintings arranged in a chronological grid.
