ALLIANCE FRANCAISE presents: LOST IN SINGAPORE

Tue Jan 18, 2022 - Sat Mar 05, 2022
Expired!

Too often in our societies, man is absorbed by his daily life, constantly caught in his infernal rhythms and tends to become a machine. Our civilizations, blinded by the singular necessity of endless production, crush everything in their path. A quest that makes us lose our identity and the traces of our past, to live only in the present as we rush headlong towards the future. But everywhere hands reach forth and minds seek each other out in an attempt to learn to live for each other. 

After Los Angeles in April 2021, a city also committed to sustainable development, Lost in Singapore is a dog sitting in the midst of an ultra-modern architecture as a symbol of life and the contribution of Aurèle to tomorrow’s world, so that action again becomes sister to dream in order to liberate the possibilities of new lives in each of us.

Alliance Française is thrilled to present Lost in Singapore and showcasing 20 pieces by Aurèle as part of Singapore Art Week 2022. Artworks are from a private collection. 

Dates: from 18 January to 5 March
Free entrance

Gallery opening hours
Monday: closed
Tuesday to Friday: 1:00pm-7:30pm
Saturday: 9:30am-5.30pm

BIOGRAPHY OF AURÈLE RICARD ‘LOSTDOG’

Aurèle Ricard is a French post-industrial visual artist. His “LostDog” is a trademark, his yellow, a color of hope. Aurèle is the prototype of a generation of artists without any complexes or moods, driven by on-the-ground action more than just a simple artsy attitude, a way of being more than a way of showing. As an artist, Aurèle can be recognized by a certain power of assertion in his works – if one word could define his relationship to the world, a word which animates both his work and his life, it would undoubtedly be ACTION. Aurèle’s collected works take on the appearance of a fight: a fight for Art as much as a fight for Life. An engaged and committed artist, Aurèle’s LostDog is symbolic of the urgency and resistance to the plague of an era in which he cultivated his art. Aurèle has been developing, for more than twenty-five years, the same radical project of denouncing modern wanderings. Its goal: to mobilize present and future generations in the face of wars, epidemics, ecological catastrophes, political and media excesses, precariousness and exclusion, inequalities, and overconsumption. In Aurèle’s world, art is a true “mirror of modernity”, confronting reality and challenging it to be better.
