Month of Photography Asia

Time         : Wednesday, June 29 at 11:00pm - July 8 at 7:00pm
Location   : ION Art Gallery - SINGAPORE

At first glance, Agan Harahap's SUPERHISTORY appears to be a tongue-in-cheek look at world history: Superman with Allied troops at the Normandy D-Day Landings; Batman inspecting paratroopers just before they board their airplanes to participate in the first assault in the invasion of the European continent; Darth Vader at the Meeting of Yalta with Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin. By inserting popular culture icons into photographs of historic world events, Indonesian photographer, Agan Harahap, forces us to rethink history and the way we remember the past. Conflating historical events with fictional characters that have become so much a part of our popular imagination onto the photographic plane, his pictures have cleverly tricked us momentarily into believing that these characters exist and were present to witness these events.
