ZUL: Sonically Exposed

Exhibition Information

Opening Day14 January 2014, Tuesday, 6:30pm
Period15 January - 9 March 2014
Location 51 Waterloo,

The Private Museum presents ZUL: SONICALLY EXPOSED, a new body of works created over the past 3 years since ZUL’s last solo exhibition in 2010. The established Singaporean sound artist will be presenting nine sound-reliefs, four sound sculptures, a sound installation and sketches, which are part of his working process, for the first time.

ZUL was formally trained as a sculptor and ventured into sound in 2006, creating multi-disciplinary works that combine visual and sound. He has conceptualized sound installations that define the denuded sense that few dare to explore. The artworks are bare; fixated on the amorphous medium produced. Each artwork also produces a different experience with the integration of the audience.
