This exhibition brings together for the first time a group of important contemporary artworks selected to illustrate the voluntary bridge the Pierre Lorinet Collection has built over the past decade between the founders of Minimalism and some of the most prominent Asian artists from the twenty-first century who have shaped their practice from the history of Modernism and mostly on Asian political or philosophical concepts.


When Pierre Lorinet started his collection in 2012 with a focus on Minimalism, one of the most influential and rigorous movement in the history of contemporary art, he challenged his relationship to art by choosing to find and experience emotions within radicality.


Moving the collection to Singapore a few years later meant opening it to artists with Asian origins who in various ways are or had been influenced by Minimalism.


Chen Zhen, Nam June Paik, Ai Weiwei, Haegue Yang all share a deep education on art history and strong concerns about their contribution not only to contemporary art but also to their respective countries. Their presence in the collection has anticipated the acquisition of a younger generation of Asian artists such as Thai-American artist Korakrit Arunanondchai.

 I have limited space at home, and the works I collect tend to be relatively large and bulky, not always easy to install in our living space. I want the works to get out and be shared. I’m really looking forward to the exhibition.
