Charcoal is often associated with drawing or sketching. In the case of artist Mahalakshmi Kannappan, she uses it to great sculptural effect: creating three-dimensional forms that play with textures and differences in light refraction.⁠

In this episode of Mushroomed, Object Lessons Space speaks to the artist about her enduring relationship with charcoal, and how she handles such a tactile and sensuous medium.⁠

Intimate, participatory, touching, and introspective ー these are words that can be used to describe Clarice Ng’s works.

Although she describes herself as an artist and illustrator, this doesn’t seem to capture the rich granularity of her practice. Clarice’s practice centers the act of co-creating alongside and listening to the viewer. For this episode, we sit down with the artist to discuss how she works across installation, video work, illustration, ceramic making, and more.

This episode of Mushroomed delves deep into the space of digital exhibitions, now practiced by artists more than ever with the ongoing pandemic.⁠

Some digital exhibitions recreate the space of a museum or a gallery online, allowing users to explore the hallways and artworks virtually and from the comforts of their own home. Others lean into the possibilities afforded by the webpage itself, using it as a blank canvas to create interactive works that are meant to be encountered via the screen.⁠

Features interviews with Tulika Ahuja, Reza Hasni, and Siah Tiong Hong.⁠

Shaiful Zerox has been a steadfast participant in the zine subculture since the 1990s. ⁠

About Squelch Zines

Website | Facebook | Instagram

We are a collective trying to build a community of zine makers in Singapore. The Singapore zine culture has been hidden, and almost forgotten a few years back, and even more so during this digital age.

Squelch Zines hope to gather as many zinesters in Singapore to form the community, and ultimately be the bridge that connects them to the rest of the zine communities around the world. With that, we also want to encourage more people to continue or start making their own zine. The zine is such a wonderful and versatile communicative medium, and it could be in so many different types of form and made with countless of ways! Everyone’s zine(s) is what they make of it.

Squelch Zines was founded by Nicholas Loke and Janice Chua in 2013. The collective is now a tetrad along with Hafiz Syukri and Alif Seah.

Squelch Zines’s approach has always been experimental, as we try to make every zine experience Squelchable with everyone whom we have come across. Amongst some of the things we have are: The Zine Library, Zine Jam, Zine Swap, and the Squelchable Starter Pack, which we bring along with to our pop-ups, exhibitions and events such as the annual Singapore Art Book Fair.

Squelch Zines have also been working on the next evolution in the zine culture.
