SI FY1617 Cycle 3

A Beauty Centre @ Juming Museum: Yeo Chee-Kiong Solo Exhibition


With an intention to provoke thoughts surrounding the idea of “beauty”, A Beauty Centre is constructed as a twofold world where the retail saloon industry and the art gallery as an institution overlaps and meets. On the one hand, there is the rather mischievous mimicry of a retail space; on the other there is the actuality of the art exhibition itself taking place within the gallery compound. The two worlds collapse into one as the system of the saloon as a site for the negotiation of beauty for vanity slips into the framework of a gallery where sensuous objects created by the artist are being consumed by the gallery goers. By juxtaposing the two, the artist poses questions and manifests the hidden affinity between the beauty business and the art world. 
A Beauty Centre is supported under SIF's Singapore Internationale programme. To learn more about the programme, click here.
