Where are we going: do we want to arrive?
A solo exhibition by Sin Yee Tan uses animals to explore the paradox of human progress in the present world.
A luxurious city is the dream of every contemporary society. From centuries-old domestication of animals to the latest gene-editing,
the global push for economic growth sees a surge in consumer demands. When luxury becomes a worldwide aspiration, it is not hard to imagine that consumption inevitably becomes a cultural value of civilisation. Drawing the narrative from humanity’s progressive alienation from the natural world and towards the artificial, ‘Where are we going: do we want to arrive?’ invites us to reconsider the reality that we inhabit by examining the rites and rituals of humankind.
