MA Fine Arts alumna Donna Ong has launched a new work-in-progress exhibition at LASALLE’s Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore. Titled Blueprints for the Forest, it explores people’s depictions of this terrestrial ecosystem, especially the gap between real and imagined landscapes as seen in land-scarce Singapore.
On display are lithographs, photo montages, excerpts from books, an installation of magnets and more. “Singapore is in the tropics but we create these manicured gardens. I’m interested in how this affects our view of the forest and how we act towards it,” Donna shared.
