Singh’s submission, entitled Spatial Memorial, pays tribute to the 2011 Japan tsunami disaster – the white cord suspended from one pole to the other creates an elevated horizontal line that measures 37.9 metres above sea level. This line marks a recorded height the March 11 2011 Japan tsunami waters reached inland.
Spatial Memorial was awarded the $2500 Sculpture Inside Curators’ Prize.
Exhibition dates: 18 October – 4 November 2012

Roh Singh, Spatial Memorial, 2012, installation view
Roh Singh‘s solo exhibition at dianne tanzer gallery + projects entitled Tell them I said something is about the occasionally poignant and often humorously apt final last words uttered at the cusp of life. Singh has memorialised quotes of famous last words of a variety of artists, performers and historical figures into a sculptural format. Using the peaks and troughs of soundwaves Singh solidifies the ephemeral characteristics of sound into a sculptural existence. This body of work continues Singh’s exploration of the conundrums in representing intangible and ephemeral elements as sculpture.
28 July – 1 September at dianne tanzer gallery + projects

March is gearing up to be a busy month here at dtg+p, and to kick it off we have an opening and a cause for congratulations:
Roh Singh’s exhibition Inaudible Sounds, presented courtesy of dianne tanzer gallery + projects for LIFEwithBIRD, opens tonight 6 – 9 pm at the LIFEwithBIRD store in Melbourne’s GPO. A feature of L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival’s 2011 Cultural Program, Singh’s sculptures, often taking the form of all together new, yet familiar animals, bounce off the spaces in the LIFEwithBIRD GPO store – floating, colliding and playing with the minimalist space of the shops’ interior.
If you can’t make the opening tonight, the exhibition can be viewed until March 30 at the LIFEwithBIRD store, shop F05, GPO Building, 350 Bourke Street.
