Afterwords Travelling Exhibition

What happens to a piece of paper after it has outlived its purpose? What else does it want to say when there is no space left?

Check out how calligraphy artist Malik Mazlan and haiku* poet Dave Tai introduced new perspectives to canvases created from drafts, past projects and personal items, by refreshing them with haiku and calligraphy through the Afterwords exhibition.

Following its showcase at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre, the exhibition will travel into the heartlands from 12 April. Don’t miss your chance to check it out at nine public libraries across Singapore and find out how Afterwords highlights the longevity of the written word and how wastepaper can be recycled creatively to form new works.

Special thanks to the National Library Board for hosting the Afterwords Travelling Exhibition.
