ABOUT THIS EVENT

“Sightlines” is a series of poems mapped onto a collection of black and white images shot on film. The combination of poems and images are notes on passing through diverse places with an unnamed female traveler, who is both photographer and protagonist.

Sightlines can be defined as multiple unimpeded lines of sight to a subject. The traveler finds kinship in a landscape that shifts from one sightline to another. Longing is written into each frame. There is space between the grain to imagine.

The journey embarked on is not through defined cities, but places that evoke a sense of being and becoming, of wide spaces, distant faces and shifting silhouettes.

Within each paired image and poem is a small movement. First the image, then the poem, and then the image again, winding them together into a single voice for the reader. Yet there remains nothing definite in the idea of ‘looking.’ The poem is just one possible place from which to view the photograph.

In a time where emotional isolation permeates our society, Alliance Française de Singapour invites you to embark on a poetic journey of introspection and connection in the exhibition “Sightlines”, guided by words from Marc Nair and observed through the lens of Tsen-Waye Tay.

Presented by: Alliance française de Singapour & Intersections
