‘What you are the World is’ by Andrew Pok
The Godown and Andrew Pok are proud to present 'What you are the World is', a site-specific installation by artist Andrew Pok. 'What you are the World is' comprises six foot tall welded fences that make up a maze spanning the entire main hall of the arts centre.
In response to a year significantly impacted by COVID-19 and its domino effect on industries and individuals, Andrew Pok’s massive installation invites visitors to immerse themselves as they navigate through the maze, encountering smooth passage or obstacles, in much the same way one would juggle life’s challenges in the quest for a more purpose-filled existence.
The installation is a continuation of Andrew Pok’s exploration of mazes as a metaphor for one’s journey through life. According to the artist:
“The maze is an allegory of the dichotomy between our unsettled inner states and a world of illness, climate disasters, political polarity, wars and other widespread global issues.”

Andrew Pok is an artist devoted to the attentiveness of everyday, ordinary objects and activities that people may take for granted. His works connect his perspective of acceptance and impermanence, as well as the interconnected relationships between people and their objects. His philosophy centres around the practice of Mindfulness, memories, the self and society. Pok is the co-founder of Yida Arts Collective and Studios Samasama, a space that hosts alternative practices and community-focused activities. He has exhibited locally as well as around the regions, in Singapore, Thailand, UK and Italy.

Funded by Cendana and co-sponsored by Perniagaan Yik Sing Sdn Bhd, 'What you are the World is' will be open to walk-in visitors.
