Got a mail today from Deborah Kelly (bio) who did cloud projections with a large scale projector and the slogan “Beware of the GOD” back in 2006. She redid these projections at the Singapore Biennale 2008.
Singapore — Like the giant Batman sign projected into the night skies of Gotham City, the text “Beware of the God” suddenly appeared in the Singaporean sky mid-September. The 30-minute projection, repeated over several nights, was the work of Deborah Kelly, part of the opening week of the Singapore Biennale 2008.
While the Australian artist said the work had a serious subtext, warning of the confluences of religion and politics, she added that it also aimed to “entirely disarm the audience so you don’t go ‘Oh more art’; you go, ‘What is that? It’s a miracle!”
