Yantronomy by Tina Fung / Reza Hasni
18 Aug to 26 Aug
7.30 PM - 12.00 AM
CHIJMES, The Lawn at Level 1
This installation takes the form of an iridescent cube, installed on site as a monolithic structure on the lawn at Chjimes. Reminiscent of Kubrick’s black monolith in his 2001: A Space Odyssey, the installation also represents a break between two competing realities. Taking the form of the Yantra, the Kaleidoscope posits the possibility of magical alternate realities within the construct of the everyday life.
