- AHMAD FUAD OSMAN, Artist
Recent years have shown a conceptual turn for Fuad with an interest in the veracity of truths, alternate histories and contesting or reinterpreting of existing histories emerging. This characteristic comes through in Recollections of Long Lost Memories(2007/08), which won Jurors’ Choice Award at the APBF Signature Art Prize (2008) in Singapore, and his more recent work, ‘Enrique de Malacca Memorial Project’, shown in 2016 in Singapore Biennale 14 and shown again in Sharjah Biennale 2019, UAE from March until June this year (2019). Drawing on historical accounts, texts and archives, Fuad pieces together fragments of evidence and conflicting narratives, finding creative ways to fill in gaps.
