Of Wax, Dyes and Labour is an artistic response to Batik. Seven Singapore-based artists of different practices will be presenting new works, paying homage to the traditional art form that is considered obsolete and labour intensive in contemporary times. Artists will translate, juxtapose or amalgamate their work into elements found in Batik - from its techniques, processes, materials, motifs & usage of the fabric.
