Upcoming Art Fair
Photo 17 @Singapore Contemporary
Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, Level 4, 1 Raffles Boulevard, Suntec City
January 19 - 22, 2017
The 2nd edition of Singapore Contemporary will present its first curated platform dedicated to photography - Photo17 Singapore. The exhibition will be one of the largest photo presentations in Singapore, organised into four sections: documentary, fine art and conceptual photography, as well as mixed media photo and installations.
Introducing audiences to new and original approaches in photography from artists and galleries, Photo17 Singapore will push the envelop beyond the mundane snapshot, presenting works that demonstrate the flexibility, refinement and creativity that can be expressed through the photographic medium. The exhibition will look closely at the diversity and development of photography from its documentation form to the expanded fields of installations and new media, in the region and beyond.
Intersections is proud to present three talented Burmese female photographers at Photo 17, Phyu Mon, Nge Lay and Zoncy.

Intersections proudly presents a solo show by June Lee Yu Juan, Singapore
Trained in traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy, June Lee Yu Juan is concerned with the diminishing stature of Chinese ink painting and culture and the desensitization of today’s youth towards their own ethnicity, culture, and roots. Revisiting the Chinese ink medium, she strives to translate the vast culture of Chinese art and literature into a contemporary language. June easily moves from one medium to the other and challenges herself by developing new techniques like in her series of photograms.
Her solo show encompasses, Cut in Space, photograms from a series of sculptures and photograms, Night Fall a series of photographic prints, I Wish upon Many Stars, sculptural objects made of nickel chrome on anodized aluminium and Calligraphic Matter, acrylic and Chinese ink paintings on rice paper.

Zoncy's Unknown women 04: Siege Unit questions the current transition period in Myanmar and the changes of the city landscape. In the wake of the political changes and of the opening of the country to foreign investors, condominiums, business centers, lavish shopping malls and restaurants have been mushrooming in Yangon. However, for Zoncy, the poor people and among them the women do not benefit from the long awaited economic development. As long as the society will be plagued by corruption and by the opacity of the administration the wealth of the country will not be better distributed, the rich people will become richer and the poor people will not have access to education, to better jobs and healthcare.
In this series, Zoncy represents women working in the streets of Yangon and Mandalay. She strives to draw the attention on the struggle and on the social role of these women as guardians of Myanmar identity and culture.
