Featured at the Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF) for the second time, the Silvana S. Foundation Commission Award recognizes artists’ ability to interweave environmental, wildlife preservation, and humanitarian concerns into their photography. The winner of this edition’s Silvana S. Foundation Commission Award is Ian Teh, a British-Malaysian documentary photographer whose works are motivated by the environmental issues of urbanization and development.
The COVID-19 pandemic prompted widespread, collective reflections on the changes that are needed for a more equitable and sustainable world. With our human lives intrinsically intertwined with other animals, how can we co- exist in sustainable ways that benefit human beings and the planet? This second edition of the commission award welcomes explorations of renewal, regeneration, and synergistic co-existence with a sensitivity toward the conditions needed for our shared survival for generations to come.
Renewable Coexistence features new commissions by Ian Teh, The Line of Least Resistance, alongside selected works by Silvana Sutanto presented by Silvana S. Foundation.
Renewable Coexistence is jointly organised by Silvana S. Foundation, Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF), and Mizuma Gallery. Part of the proceeds from this exhibition will go towards Make-A-Wish Singapore.
