ABOUT THIS EVENT

What happens to a piece of paper after it has outlived its purpose? What else does it want to say when there is no space left?

Check out how calligraphy artist Malik Mazlan and haiku* poet Dave Tai introduced new perspectives to canvases created from drafts, past projects and personal items, by refreshing them with haiku and calligraphy. The Afterwords exhibition underlies the longevity of the written word and maximises the exploration of recycling wastepaper to form the foundation of new works. Accompanying this exhibition, Dave will be stationed at the SINGAPO人: Discovering Chinese Singaporean Culture located in SCCC, Level 2, on 21st Nov from 3 pm to 6 pm, to personalise haikus for visitors. Additionally, Malik & Dave will lend their expertise and perspectives with an exclusive guided tour on 30th January 2021 (Saturday) from 3.30pm to 4.30pm. Group size of each tour is limited to no more than five (excluding guide), and visitors are required to check in at the Level 10 registration area.

*A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with a total of seventeen syllables. Typically, every first line of a haiku has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables, and the third has 5 syllables.
