About this Event

Season 2: The distance between us

The distance between us is the second season of OH!’s three-part digital art walk on the effects of COVID-19 on Singapore. The season investigates how we now experience ‘distance’ has changed, for example how we maintain and find new relationships in a pandemic. Seven local artists respond to the way distance manifests in our current reality.

In this experience, audiences will continue to explore the story in the Sleeping Man (first shown in Season 1)’s bedroom over four episodes. Each episode will feature new objects in the Sleeping Man’s bedroom that reveal new artworks and narratives. Each episode will also be available only for a week at certain times to enhance the viewing experience.

DESKTOP ONLY EXPERIENCE. Available from 6PM, Friday, 19 February 2021(GMT+8) onwards at ohopenhouse.online.

  • Featuring a collaborative work from Bailey Wait, Lim Shi-An, Robert Wait, Tan Kheng Hua and a work from Yen Phang

Days — and counting

Days — and counting is an on-going portrait of COVID-19 that captures the surreal and strange times we live in through the lens of art and artists. The programme unfolds in three seasons each taking the form of an immersive digital experience that explores our new reality under the pandemic.

The digital art walk takes the metaphor of a dream. The seasons mirror Singapore slowly awakening and having to adapt to new measures and an inescapable reality. These experiences unpack the effects of COVID-19 on a personal and collective level.
