‘The Awoken Flock’ - Department of 3D Design Graduation Show 2013

Dates: 09 July - 13 July 2013
Time: 11.30am - 7pm
Venue: Galleries 1 & 2, Lim Hak Tai Gallery, NAFA Campus 1, 80 Bencoolen Street, Singapore 189655

Admission: Free

Damien Hirst’s “Away from the Flock”, 1994 which featured a lamb pickled in formaldehyde has created controversies all over the world. The humble animal has achieved worldwide recognition and provided avenues for the audience to rethink the value of art and meanings of art. Until today, there seems to be no end to the discussion.

Hirst brought us into an intangible dimension of life, stating: “It’s not a ‘preserved’ lamb, it’s a dead lamb. But then it does have a kind of new life.” Set in a parallel concept, this Graduation Show featuring a few highly thought-provoking works presented by the Diploma and Degree graduands of the Department of 3D Design, symbolises the incubated state of “tragic beauty” in their works. The audiences are urged to focus on these sincere works by the graduands, who will soon seek their pastures in different fields at different levels in the professional creative industry, continuing their work of transforming the mundane into something more valuable.

This graduation show is the 170 students’ way to come together as a flock one last time, capturing a celebratory moment of their lives even as they provide dialogue points for the audience to rethink the value of art and design in their lives.

Jonathan Kyle Farmer is an Associate Professor of Fashion at the prestigious Parsons The New School for Design in New York. He will be holding an exhibition "Drawing With Scissors" to reveal the cutting edge - in more ways than one - with a technique he calls 5D. “Having always worked with both 2D and 3D processes, I made a simple calculation: 2D+3D=5D,” explains Farmer. His work began with a single scissor cut in a folded piece of white paper, which eventually turned into the 5D doll-like figures presented at the exhibition.
