Exhibition Review - Heman Chong:'An Arm, A Leg and Other Stories' South London Gallery, London till 28th Feb 2016.

Image of South London Gallery, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

With Heman I lost my absurd,
in brief receipts of disconnect,
it came up floating Meursault. - Drenched Co.

Comment: " As always, I believe Heman is commenting about Singapore. And for me his work smacks of the demeanor of this tiny island nation - it is cautiously clear, cynically pragmatic, as subtle as a business card transaction and as rule obsessed as a mathematician. It has a sterile high-concept lucidity, work-the-system sprezzatura and is alarmingly  unencumbered by history or meaning. I found Heman's accomplished appropriation of works and stripping of meaning most interesting and telling. I liked his 'Inclusion(s)' best." - JayZee
