WAITING FOR TIME (NATIONAL STADIUM) PHOTOS BY ERWIN TAN

WaitingForTimeEDM

“I felt like I was capturing the soul of an old man, sitting in grandeur waiting for his eventual death.” – Erwin Tan

Chancing upon the old National Stadium amidst a mild drizzle along the way home from work, Erwin was struck by the dilapidation and loneliness of the place upon deciding to make a detour to capture the place.

He has since embarked on a life long journey to photograph buildings in Singapore awaiting to be torn down, such as East Coast McDonald’s at Marine Cove, Margaret Drive Estate and Henry Park Estate, and plans to travel around Asia to archive buildings facing a similar fate through his lens.

Join us for the opening reception of Waiting For Time (National Stadium) photo exhibition by Erwin Tan at Lomography Gallery Store this Friday.

PREVIEW: THE CULT OF NINE ‘FORGET-ME-NOT’ COLLECTION LAUNCH

FORGET ME NOT
The Cult of Nine debut collection, ‘Forget Me Not’ is a reflection of the designers’ youth and influence from the grunge, metal and punk subculture. The collection is a look back to their fearless teenage years and a translation of their visions and beliefs then. The gender-neutral limited pieces are individually hand made, reconstructed and hand finished, retaining that DIY punk sensibility.

‘Forget Me Not’ is an anthem of the youth, representing the experimental, rebellious and nonconforming attitude they possess. This is for the youth of today.

THE CULT OF NINE
The Cult of Nine are Shawn Tan and Rachel Tan, both majored in Fashion Communication from LASALLE College of the Arts and graduated in 2009. The Cult of Nine has since been their constant creative process and outlet for fashion, design and photography.

Underground subcultural movements and DIY punk ethos have always largely influenced them, and are reflected and incorporated in their ideas and designs, which are individually hand made, reconstructed and hand finished. The Cult of Nine is an expression of the designers’ influences, ideologies and DIY punk beliefs; retaliating against the ideals of mass production and commercial conformity.

The Cult of Nine pop-up shop will run throughout the month of April at Blackmarket No.2
Support your local underground.
