It is not often that one gets to see some exemplary photographs told in a story without being too cliché. After all, photographs can always be very literal and taken at face value where if one is not careful, it might not work out as how the photographer would want it to.
This notion is made all the more challenging since the title of the show is IKAN: A Photography Essay which means DevLee, the artist behind this solo exhibition attempts to express his thoughts through the use of fish carcasses images, a truly unique subject matter and through the art of photography, yet another unique medium.
The works are inspired through the exchange of the mystical works of Zhuang Tzu and Hui Tse and Dev is looking to project his works through his take on how subjectivity, truth and the labels that human tends to assign to objects and things. The show is held at the AKU Café and Gallery where there will be free photo sharing session hosted by Dev himself on December 14th. Otherwise, take the time to see how fish carcasses can be used to derive and tell the message that the artist desires through his expert play of lighting and subject matter as well a pinch of calligraphy as well.
Opening Hours: Tuesdays to Sundays 11.00am to 8.00pm
