Multimedia artist project duo Paradise Now, consisting of local artists Bryan Tan and Jay Ho, presents ‘archetype’ at SPRMRKT at Dempsey Hill, illustrating their take on the formation of personalities, its influence over an individual and subsequently, the collective existence. The exhibition delves into a subject matter universal to all – how one’s personality or self is formed. Simple and minimalist, the pieces coincide with SPRMRKT at Dempsey Hill’s natural, contemporary aesthetics of open spaces and clean lines.
In their bid to understand and be understood, this new series explores the multiple facets that contribute to one’s personality, investigating its involvement in their creative process from conceptualisation to production. Approaching the creation of this series as a project, this showcase becomes an essential foundation for discovering and understanding their dynamics as a creative duo.
