Mark Justiniani at Art Stage Singapore 2017
Justiniani deftly deploys spatial depth, layering screens much like a proscenium theatre or virtual reality. He frames for us a familiar and enchanting world. Yet these are devices by which he draws us deeper into otherwise shallow space. Pits and caverns lie before us, tunnels and tracks beckon, alleys and lanes draw us in – to plunge, cruise and tread.
Yet all are threatened meanderings, where we are bound to get lost or trapped, whereafter we lose track, become a trace, indeed, be ‘out of time’.
