Pondering your existence in the universe? The much asked question of “who am I” is the theme of Korean artist Monassi’s latest exhibition in his search for identity. Taking him far across the world to Norway, his journey has not produced any answers but has made him realise why the answer might never be found. This spark of realisation is contained within the monochrome ink-wash paintings that evoke simplicity and purity, contrasting with the philosophical each piece possess.
If you haven’t attended any of The O.P.E.N’s eye-opening line-up of programmes centring on our world and humanity, the next two weeks are your last chance. Themed ‘enchantment’, the rest of the festival will showcase a line-up of diverse programmes, ranging from film to open kitchens, where the audience is invited to experience cooking with a spectrum of home cooks with stories and hidden techniques as delightful as their dishes.
It might not be happening this week, but you never know when a chance to learn how to make a fashionable pop-patterned corsage from Japanese graphic artist Takora from Tako Labo might come again. Using textiles and paper goods, Tokora sparks the imagination with his vivid and bold patterns that blend shapes and colours to form artful pieces. He will be bringing cutoffs from his own Tako Labo fabric, specially flown in from Japan, and all other materials will also be provided so you can focus on enjoying an afternoon of crafty creation.
