How do we talk to each other when our communication is mediated by language and technology across time and space? In this exhibition twenty-two established and up-and-coming artists from the United Kingdom and Singapore address this theme with diverse and exhilarating responses.

Works range from Eleanor Moreton’s I Narcissus, her re-interpretation of the Greek myth of Echo and Narcissus and Dan Hays’s painting of his Colorado doppelganger to Tania De Rozario and Lynn Lu’s two-room installation Fuse with myriad grazing silkworms.

In her haunting film Fragments on Machines Emma Charles observes the evolution of New York’s architecture to accommodate the matconnectors that comprise the physical manifestation of the “virtual” world. Natalie Dawkins uses humour in works exploring the ways in which we control - and are controlled by - social media. Min-Wei Ting’s elegiac work You’re Dead To Me communes with the tropical forests and ancient tombs of Singapore’s Bukit Brown cemetery, a location further explored in Zai Tang and Simon Ball's animated soundscape composition Exploit.

In Love, Piracy Manu Luksch invites visitors to collaborate in an act of undermining censorship, while Sarah Choo’s film Hidden Dimension explores moments of solitude within contemporary family life, and Debbie Ding’s gentle sculptural work Lint reflects on intimacy and traces in a long-distance relationship.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a full colour catalogue. On the evening of Saturday June 14th at  the gallery will also host ‘Broken Telephone’, a celebration of contemporary Singaporean and British writing and poetry presented by Singapore writer and artist Tania De Rozario, with invited guest writers.

Ghost of the Wire is an immersive and richly textured show which asks us to think again about our public and private modes of communication in the modern age.
