The exhibition brings together various ideas and artistic expressions of winners, which interrogate the world where the definition of time has been blurred, and trace the shifting notion or value of time fueled by digitalisation and globalisation. Such ideas are particularly pertinent to this era of pandemic where our lives have been forced to online and physical movement has been restricted. Diverse in content and media, their works each embrace a unique creative practice such as visualisation of the passing of time, material manipulations, and profound research into historical dialogues.
