Taksu Singapore is pleased to present ‘Swimmer’, a solo exhibition by Malaysian artist Seah Zelin. The opening reception is on 13th October, Thursday, from 7:00 to 10:00pm.

It’s been a busy year for Seah Zelin. Fresh off Hit the Ground and Blossom, a solo exhibition in Kuala Lumpur 2015, the artist resurfaces in Singapore with Swimmer, a show where 9 aluminium and brass pieces mingle with Peranakan tiles, and a patriotic piano plays a single tune.

Swimmer is “about the attitude,” says the artist, hinting at a swimmer’s ability to stay afloat, master different strokes, and – on his part, certainly – to move against the current. Summed up, it’s a body of work that encapsulates Zelin, and it’s defined by his strong statements on form, identity, and remedy for homogeneity.
