Bani Haykal, Kar-men Cheng, Luke Heng, Paul Hurley, Sufian Samsiyar, Cheong Yew Mun and Chao Yibo.

20 minutes of silence explores the impossibility of absolute silence in terms of human perception. Highlighting the ‘invisible patterns which inhabit these moments’, the students’ work situate points of intimacy between space, time and the bodies that occupy them.

This presentation of work-in-progress is led by the seven MA Fine Art candidates, inviting visitors behind the scenes to discover processes in this body of work, developed through studio-practice, group discussions, critiques and experimentation. Works include photography, video, performance, painting and installation.
