“Every bit of matter and energy exists in a state of blurry flux, allowing it to occupy not just two locations but an infinite number of them simultaneously.” (Roger Penrose)
This exhibition will be located at two distinct and distant geographical locations at the same time – one in Singapore and one in LA. For this occasion, a wide compendium of diverse art works will be focusing at the experimental animated artworks by Mark Chavez done in collaboration with Ina Conradi at the emergence of Media Art Nexus at the Nanyang Technological University Singapore. The future goal of the exhibition is reinforcing a holistic approach to issues of arts education and art production within Singapore and internationally.

Ina and Mark have been collaborating on numerous art and new media projects for the last 20 years, most recently awarded by the Hollywood Advanced Imaging Society’s 2018 Lumiere Award for the best 3D Short Animation. Their ongoing project Media Art Nexus (MAN) is supported by the Singapore’s NTU Museum’s Public Art Initiative. Animation industry veteran and founding faculty at NTU School of Art, Design and Media, Mark is based in Singapore and Los Angeles, founder of Giant Monster Pte Ltd. Ina is Associate Professor at the Nanyang Technological University Singapore. They both hold a Master’s of Fine Art from UCLA. Ina and Mark are currently Artists in Residence at the UCLA Art|Sci Center. While here, they have premiered a new collaborative piece 12 States of Zodiac together with Victoria Vesna + Siddharth Ramakrishnan + Marisa Caichiolo for occasion of the Hox Zodiac exhibition at Building Bridges gallery in Santa Monica, CA.
