Resolution of Reality by Joo Choo Lin at Hermes

The Fondation d’entreprise Hermès presents an exhibition called Resolution of Reality, a solo exhibition by Joo Choon Lin. The iconic pop tune from the 1980s was a premonition of the dawn of a technological era. While our experiences today are greatly connected to the extraordinary pace of technological advancement, it has produced a vast amount of waste in its wake. Joo Choon Lin’s Resolution of Reality resurrects these forgotten electronic gadgets in her latest construction of scenarios, portraying technology’s fragile life cycle. This site-specific installation on the third floor of the Hermès store in Singapore explores the unlikely relationship between technology and nostalgia, both fundamentally incompatible concepts by definition – technology incites change whereas nostalgia resists it. Resolution of Reality will be on view until December 16 at Third Floor, Hermès, 541 Orchard Road, Liat Towers, Singapore.
