On Holding Space
Published by Object Lessons Space
On Holding Space is a publication that hopes to unfurl the ecologies of generosity. Holding space for one another should be open-ended, an undercurrent, a deep breath. How might this expansiveness colour the way we move, make, or compose alliances.
As a platform that has primarily inhabited the digital and textual space, this publication follows closely the discursive grain of the work that we've been doing online. It is envisioned as a physical and tactile extension of Object Lessons Space.
The texts and visual artworks in the publication are accomplices to one another. Complementing these interventions are a series of poems that stand in the gap, playing with both words and images to countervail the purely textual or visual.
The publication brings together new interviews, commissioned artworks, and poetry. It features the practices and works of artists and cultural practitioners – including Sonia Kwek, Joanne Pang, Charmaine Poh, Marla Bendini, Pey Chuan Tan, Rifqi Amirul Rosli, PURE EVER, Aki Hassan, and Jollin Tan.
