We are happy to announce Between Departing and Arriving, an exhibition by Jem Magbanua, as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Jem Magbanua is a visual artist based in the Philippines. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore in 2014. Her work has been exhibited in the Philippines, Singapore, and the United States.
She examines ideas of the nature of place, of human beings in place, and of the organic and artificial structures that shape such being. Her drawings and collages are acts of contemplation on the flux of the bustling city life and how it affects a person’s sense of belonging.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
The garden is an insightful entry point into understanding the relations between man and his natural surroundings. This collection of works particularly explores the element of time and temporality in the philosophy of Japanese gardening.
