Event Details

In "preload", Iwan Effendi revisits his memories and artistic process of meeting the seven individuals whose fragments of stories became the basis of a prior performance by Papermoon Puppet Theatre. Unlike Iwan’s earlier works that depicted what he called ‘the daydreaming face’, the works in preload present lively and expressive faces that contain traces of stories of loss, fear, sorrow, and uncertainty —faces that pique one’s curiosity.

"preload", a solo exhibition by Iwan Effendi, will run from 11 November to 17 December 2023 at Mizuma Gallery, 22 Lock Road #01-34 Gillman Barracks, Singapore 108939. The gallery will open from 11am-7pm on Tuesdays to Saturdays, and 11am-6pm on Sundays. The gallery will be closed on Mondays and Public Holidays.

In conjunction with the launch of the exhibition, an opening reception in the presence of Iwan Effendi (artist) will be held on Saturday, 11 November 2023, from 4 to 7 pm. This event is free admission, and is open to the public. To register your attendance and to meet the artist in person, please RSVP at by Friday, 10 November 2023. A digital publication featuring images of the artworks and a text by Windy Ariestanty will be available on
