AOIAngles of Incidence is the result of the third Singapore International Foundation-British Council Artist-in-Residence Exchange (SIF-BC AiRx) programme featuring Singaporean artist-architect Randy Chan and British artist Philippa Lawrence. Following residencies and interactions with communities in each other’s cities – Singapore and London – Chan and Lawrence have created a site-specific collaborative installation which will be launched at the Inner Temple Gardens on 4 June 2014.

“Angles of Incidence comprises a multi-faceted pod and its family of reflective offshoots, strewn beneath the 19th Century Plane trees. Each element creates new vantage points and planes of perception enabling visitors to re-connect with the rich heritage of the gardens. The reflective nature of the steel and the Swarovski crystal portals re-energise the site creating a dynamic relationship between object and environment as they de-materialise and become part of the landscape.” Tolla Sloane, Curator

 

Where the judiciary establishment dates back to medieval times in the UK, the gardens provides a befitting backdrop for both artists to create a temporary installation in response to the universal themes of heritage, memory and identity.

Attendance at the launch will be by invite only. You are welcomed to visit the installation at the following timings from 4 June to 20 July 2014:
