Lush Fixations
By Nadiah Bamadhaj
Richard Koh Fine Art
[Press Release]

Richard Koh Fine Art (RKFA) is pleased to announce Nadiah Bamadhaj’s (b.1968) soloexhibition in Singapore. Lush Fixations is scheduled to run from 25 Oct – 9 Nov 2019.The artist will present six paper collage works and three cast patina-ed brass sculpturesin her first attempt with the medium.

In Lush Fixations, the body of works attempts to create two situations; a celebration and an accusation. Thefirst, is to negate codes. The drawings are an attempt to celebrate body, sex and sexuality, and are regarded as achallenge and confrontation to power that prefers to keep sex and sexuality behind the closed doors ofconservatism.

The drawings of the body are coupled with selected plant species to emphasize the overtness of sexuality. Thenotion of ‘lush’ in the context of the drawings are regarded as sexual, not fertile. The titles play with the Latinnames of plants to produce meanings of their own.

The second segment, in sculptural form, point fingers at the finger pointers. Sexuality has been the whippingboy of religious fundamentalism and doctrine to dominate relationships, appearance, and agency. This bodyof works is an reaction towards the effort to stifle and codify all expressions of sexuality, and in an ironic twist,reveals the conservatist fixation on the very thing that they are trying to suppress. Both drawings andsculptures, come together to formulate the exhibition title; Lush Fixations.
