Art Asia Pacific | “ONLY LOSERS LEFT ALIVE (LOVE SONGS FOR THE END OF THE WORLD)” Review

28 Sep 2021 Gallery

“Only Losers Left Alive (Love Songs for the End of the World)” was most appropriately timed and sited. The two-part show, conceptualized by independent curator Louis Ho, took place at the far end of Gillman Barracks, a location now rather forlorn with the closing of the NTU Centre of Contemporary Art earlier this year. Although the exhibition was interrupted by restrictions on gallery attendance as Singapore entered its third lockdown phase in July, these seemingly bleak circumstances became the perfect backdrop for Ho’s dreamy vision of a post-apocalyptic dystopia. The title riffs off Jim Jarmusch’s 2013 classic Only Lovers Left Alive, and filmic references abound in this quirky, clever exhibition. Read the full review here.
