Being Together Project
a photographic series by singapore-born and new york-based
photographer john clang which encapsulates new portraiture for the
modern international family.
the collection of images is tailored to the new standard of haphazard
familial diaspora which is that regardless of whether or not the people of a
particular kin group are physically in one geographic location, the
photographer is able to capture all members together through a projection
of the missing individual(s) likeliness with the use of the video-chat
I saw this at the National Musuem of Singapore. Really moving.
Pleased to be included in the new re-designed issue of Foam Magazine Under Construction - New Positions in American Photography. To be followed by an exhibition of the same title at Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam in Sept. 2014.
On 9 May Foam “Under Construction - New Positions in American Photography” will be released. We present a selection of nine young visual artists for whom the creative process can be as much subject of an image as its final result. The photographic image as such and how we perceive it, is one of the most important focal points in their work. It seems like there are no specific rules, nor boundaries. At a certain point one might even ask if it’s still photography we are looking at. Featured photographers are Lucas Blalock, Jessica Eaton, Matthew Porter, Joshua Citarella, Matt Lipps, Sara VanDerBeek, Daniel Gordon, Kate Steciw, Owen Kydd. The publication hosts outstanding critical contributions from Charlotte Cotton, Joshua Chuang, Kelly Cannon, Lorenzo Durantini and Sara Krajevski, plus a special statement from Lucas Blalock.
Foam “Under Construction - New Positions in American Photography” anticipates a group exhibition that will be hosted in Foam Fotografiemuseum in Amsterdam from September 2014.

Motoi Yamamoto’s salt installations:
“Following the loss of his sister to brain cancer, Yamamoto adopted salt as his primary medium. In Japanese culture salt is not only a necessary element to sustain human life, it is also a symbol of purification. He uses salt in loose form to create intricate labyrinth patterns on the gallery floor or in baked brick form to construct large interior structures.
…Yamamoto views his installations as exercises that are at once futile and necessary to his healing.”
Here, the artist is meditating upon the completion of a salt labyrinth. frithia
