'ThisConnect: Threading Worlds' is held in conjunction with World Suicide Prevention Day and will run at DECK.
When a friend, family member or a loved one confides in you, what would you do? This is a question addressed by art exhibition ThisConnect: Threading Worlds.
The experiential exhibition focuses on being attuned with one’s emotions and showing empathy to others. It features video installations, and is a prelude to a bigger exhibition in December.
Videos visitors can view include blowing and deflating a balloon to represent tensions in life and strangers holding hands sharing all their hurts in life.
Local artists Quinn Lum and Hun Ming Kwang hope the exhibition will raise awareness about mental health, especially now, when the world is facing a pandemic.
This year, 4,319 and 4,265 calls were made to the SOS hotline in April and May, 30 to 35 percent more than the same time last year.
Ming Kwang said: “We wanted to do our part as artists to uplift Singaporeans, and raise awareness on mental health issues during this trying time.”
