Forging links between Singapore and Japan contemporary art, seven young artists from both countries come together in this exhibition. These young artists will present past and new artworks across a variety of mediums, from painting and sculpture, to photography and video. They have created these artworks in response to their own creative identities within the cultural context of both countries, consciously or not.
Cross Encounters also promotes the exchange of artistic knowledge, experiences and ideas between the artists from Japan and Singapore.

My contribution for this exhibition:
As a continuation of my ongoing practice-led research which is centered primarily on how I can utilize the conventions of cinema , I serve/function as a facilitator to adapt certain rules regarding the narrative role of representation in painting. I am working with film theory propositions, which consists of cinematographic framings, perceptual nature of narrative forms and fragmentation notion and readapting them into a structural painting method.
For this set of works in this exhibition, the perimeters of my exploration in readapting cinema into painting, is looking back into Yasujiro Ozu's Tokyo Story, a film about growing up and growing old. However the content of Ozu’s film are merely subtext of my work., which essentially involves the comprehension, and understanding of filmic theory.
