Workshops and Events > Past Exhibitions Sembawang: The D D Land Tang Da Wu

Located in the northern terrain of Singapore, Sembawang is known for its natural landscape and rich historical and colonial narratives. Throughout his artistic practice, eminent local artist and teacher Tang Da Wu draws on these sources of inspiration and resources. At Sembawang, he also founded a contemporary art group, The Artists Village (TAV), in the late 1980s which marked a new chapter in the art history of Singapore. This exhibition double bill by Da Wu comprised of Sembawang: The D. D. Land and Sembagraphie. The first exhibition documented the yesteryear of Sembawang as well as Da Wu's representation of the myths and legends of this landscape whereas the second showcased the artist’s journal of Sembawang, where his drawings and installations illustrate his personal experiences and observations of this unique landscape.                                                                                               In conjunction with the opening of Sembawang: The D.D. Land, Stitchen Haus da Opera, a performance art group founded by Da Wu, held a performance in reference to ‘Guernica’, a monumental anti-war painting by legendary artist, Pablo Picasso that speaks of hope and peace for children.
