One of my sunrise photos is currently on exhibit at CAT SOCRATES 苏格拉底猫 located at Bras Basah Complex. Hidden within a monolithic complex, the whimsical CAT SOCRATES is an indie bookstore cafe crammed with knick-knacks and novelty items, from pretty sketchbooks to nostalgic tin toys, all sourced by a Shanghainese couple during their trips in Asia. The cafe is bohemian hangout and a great place to linger over a cappuccino.
This shop recently organised an exhibition inspired by a book titled "The sky i wish to share with you 好想和妳分享的天空" by author 陈海晗 a.k.a Han. The exhibition theme is to share with people the scene of the sky that made you feel something. I emailed to CAT SOCRATES with this sunrise shot with a description : Watching sunrise is a new beginning, a new hope in life.
Shortlisted 'Sky to be shared' photographs are currently on exhibition until the end of May 2011.
Location of CAT SOCRATES 苏格拉底猫 Bookstore Cafe:
Bras Basah Complex #03-39B
12 noon - 8 pm (Daily)
1 pm - 7 pm (Sunday & Public Holiday)
Just a brief intro on this book - The Sky I Wish to Share With You 好想和妳分享的天空 is actually a collection of artwork in the form of a series of postcards, several installations and a short film resulting from Han's unrequited longing. Scenes of encounters shot by the artist, sometimes accompanied with notes, served as a way to share moments. As interplays of real and simulated sites conjure up familiar cinematic states, this project begins his response to the speed of contemporary society, a mediation of his need for nostalgic emotional experiences.
