Chocolate, Gummy Bears and Giant Robots

White Space Art Asia is excited to the announce our upcoming exhibition, ‘Chocolate, Gummy Bears and Giant Robots’, held in conjunction with Singapore Art Week 2024. 

An ode to the days of the past, we kick off the new year with a line of programs that take you back to your childhood days. 

‘Chocolate, Gummy Bears and Giant Robots’ is a multi-sensory exhibition that recalls the different facets of childhood and seeks to make tangible our faded memories of the simpler bygone days. Merging nostalgic sights with various human senses, we invite you to revisit the lived experiences and sensations you used to enjoy as a child. 

From 13 January to 28 January 2024, we will be showcasing a comforting curation of works from contemporary artists such as Andry Boy Kurniawan, Galih Reza Suseno, H@L, Zhao Yanan, and Jessie Katsukin Takamura. Each of the artworks evokes sentimentality, like the warmth of a mug of hot chocolate on a rainy day, and the tingling sensation on your tongue from the Fizzy Kolas you bought from the mama shop downstairs. 

The vernissage for ‘Chocolate, Gummy Bears, and Giant Robots’ will be held on 13 January, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.


Andry Boy Kurniawan

Back by popular demand, we will be showcasing Andry’s latest works in the exhibition. Bubbly and light-hearted, Andry’s interpretation of the sci-fi action movie ‘Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway’ and his rendition of Rembrandt’s ‘The Night Watch’ and Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ recall the ingenuousness of youth that once gave us the unfounded courage to do anything we wanted to.

Galih Suseno

Last November, Galih made a sculptural debut with the adorable Locious characters, Ranu and Shoku. This time round, we are thrilled to present the other half of the pair: a sculpture featuring the other two Locious characters Riku and Shu. Don’t miss out on our new sculpture reveal on our social media closer to the date!

Gallery Collection

We will also be displaying artworks from our private collection to switch up the look of our space a little. Among those works are paintings by H@L whose bold characters and crayon-like style bring to mind our carefree days as a kid. On the flip side, the sobriety of the coming of age is illustrated by the dark tones in Zhao Yanan’s oil paintings.

Melty Candyland

For the first time ever, we will be opening our cozy staff lounge to the public for an intimate display by felt artist Jessie Katsukin Takamura. 2024 marks a full decade of Jessie’s devotion to felt art. Intentionally and delicately designed, her cotton candy-like artworks will be taking over the book shelf, cabinet, and even the refrigerator! Come check out Jessie’s sugar-sweet candyland of miniature desserts and childhood playthings.
