Local artist Chloe Po presents a series of works created from her obsession with reveries constructed upon remembrance and loss for her first solo showcase.
Her practice focuses on the tension created by her desire to give her reveries a form of permanence in spite of its elusive nature.
Taking shape of fantasised objects plundered from her personal collection of reveries – her delicately handcrafted sculptures are a bid to crystalise memories passed and embody her lingering nostalgia and sentimentality.
Ranging from palm sized objects such as a pocket watch to larger items such as a cuckoo clock, these sculptures were carefully manipulated from tissue paper and glue in a lengthy and intricate process. The former softly envelopes light and diffuses shadows, while the latter bonds, mends and dries slowly. In bridging fragments of physical time with that of fantasised time, her practice captures the consciousness in a state of limbo.
