SPORE Art Salon : 2013 January Edition!


Hello, Salonistas!
We are back! And it's another year of dreaming up new ideas and collaborations at the SPORE Art Salon editions - the first one of 2013 taking place on Monday 28 January at good ol' BluJaz Cafe. Come watch local singer-musician Edmund Lee take the stage with an experimental musical skit, multi-discipline artist Stephen Black to read a few of his written works and perhaps more, finally, film maker Leon Cheo very kindly sharing his film 'The Three Sisters'. There will also be the regular in-between breaks of life drawing, so come not only with your friends, family, but some pencils, pens, and paper too! See you then!

WHERE: BluJaz Cafe (3rd Storey)
WHEN: Monday 28 January 2013 8PM onwards

FEATURED ARTISTS

LEON CHEO (filmmaker)
Leon Cheo, 27, is a director-writer-producer who graduated from the School of Film and Media Studies at Ngee Ann Polytechnic in 2006, where he wrote and directed his thesis film “Bu Ye Tian” (Nightless Day). He recently graduated from Chapman University (Singapore) with a BFA in Creative Producing. His short films, “Four Dishes” and “Swing”, has travelled to festivals in San Francisco, Hong Kong, Tehran, Bangkok, Germany and Tokyo. He is currently developing his debut feature film, “Adults Only.”

"The Three Sisters" 2012, 15 mins
Yoke Sim, Poh Sim and Choy Sim are three elderly sisters setting out for a pleasant evening at the Opera. They will, however, only come face to face with their own demons - each other.

Director's statement:
For the longest time, my grandmother wanted to watch my short films but I didn’t think she would understand them. So when my mum told me of a story, of which “The Three Sisters” is based on, I thought it would be a suitable one, just for my grandmother. When she saw the film, she said it was good. She also wondered why her on-screen persona is fatter than she actually is.

EDMUND LEE (singer-songwriter)
www.EdzMusic.com
With Influences such as Jason M’raz, Newton Faulkner and Ed Sheeran, Edmund has the dream that one day, if not him, a fellow Singaporean will be able to share the pop music stage with these other international artistes.

Edmund strives to raise awareness and the popularity of local music by starting with sharing his original heartfelt compositions. Armed with the-guy-next-door tunes such as “Mesmerised” and “Come Outside”, to the other end of the musical spectrum consisting of confidence-oozing-dude songs like “Ooo Baby” and “ScRRRub!”, Edmund aims to deliver a wide variety of musical sensations to his listeners.
