The act of remembering involves both storing and retrieving. Adopting an archival approach, we display historical objects from the Ming and Qing periods within an intimate, contemporary setting. We invite you into the life of the man who collected the objects.

thINK (read "think ink") seeks to not only present, but to evoke personal responses, to provoke dialogues between the past and present, through time and space. Get acquainted with the art of the brush and reflect on issues such as how we communicate, and what we choose to hold dear.

Join in the conversation – share your personal reflections on thINK: Chinese Calligraphy, Connoisseurship, and Collecting via Facebook or Instagram by using our hashtag #thINKACM.

Perfect Stranger is a narrative time capsule spanning a vast sea of paper washed in a gradient of words and colour. Each sheet emits a phosphorescence arising from a synthesis of shades unique to, and reflective of its script.

This verbose body of work stems from a distilled collection of texts drawn from a daily Q&A project with a stranger, an Israeli psychologist Zehavit Efrati living in Singapore, in 2016. Every day over the course of a year, the psychologist asked the artist a question, and the artist responded. This exchange between two women grew into an intimate documentary of time, space, and self.

Static yet glimmering, the installation is visually emblematic of the irony and balance in binaries and dualities – between the monumental and mundane, stillness and change, materiality and ephemerality, was and is, hello and goodbye.
