‘The Skeleton’ is a sculpture in motion, providing a different perspective from every angle. ‘The Whirl’ has been created to evoke the feeling of something ancient, between Art and Craftsmanship

THE SKELETON

Inspired by the textile industry of Southeast Asia, WY-TO has designed a Floating Skeleton to greet the fair’s visitors. The wire-framed floating structure will act as a gateway to Asia’s global art fair. Representing WY-TO’s take on a traditional textile loom from which cloth is woven, the structure’s meticulous lines represent the diverse techniques and patterns of Southeast Asian textiles. The lines also reinforce the thread that connects people and civilizations through time. The Skeleton is a sculpture in motion, providing a different perspective from every angle.

THE WHIRL

The oversized loom theme follows through into the new VIP area – The Whirl. WY-TO has deliberately used lines (representing thread), colour, light and textures to represent the diverse and differentiating cultural influences on the established textile industry of Southeast Asia, to create a series of enclaves for established collectors to experience an increased sense of privacy while visiting the exhibition. ‘The Whirl’ has been created to evoke the feeling of something ancient, between Art and Craftsmanship.

Both areas are reflective of the crossroads between East and West, which perfectly represents what both WY-TO and Singapore culture are all about. At Art Stage Singapore 2013, this is portrayed through WY-TO influences from the abstract art movement and Southeast Asian Craftsmanship.

Ces deux espaces reflètent la croisée des chemins entre l’est et l’ouest

Tel un “Squelette” composé de longues lignes effilées, la grande porte d’entrée se déploie pour accueillir les visiteurs de l’événement asiatique d’art contemporain. L’élégante structure rappelle les traditionnels métiers à tisser. L’effet cinétique de cette trame textile accompagne le mouvement du visiteur lui offrant une multitudes de perspectives.

Le thème de ce métier à tisser démesuré se développe jusque dans l’espace VIP. Entre art et artisanat, le “Tourbillon” évoque la mémoire et l’esprit des anciens motifs.
Géométrie, couleur, lumières et textures représentent les diverses influences culturelles de l’industrie du textile d’Asie du Sud-Est. Ainsi, une série d’enclaves offre aux collectionneurs un sentiment d’intimité tout au long de leur visite.

Ces deux espaces reflètent la croisées des chemins entre l’est et l’ouest, un véritable écho à la identité double de WY-TO et aux composantes culturelles de Singapour.
