Abstract: EXAMINING A SELECTION OF ARTWORKS PRODUCED BETWEEN 1991 AND 2012 BY ARTISTS IN SINGAPORE AND MALAYSIA, THE THESIS IS BOTH AN ASCRIPTION AND AN ANALYSIS OF A `HISTORIOGRAPHICAL¿ AESTHETIC WITHIN CONTEMPORARY PRACTICE. IT CONSIDERS THAT, BY THEIR METHOD AND IN THEIR ASSEMBLY, THESE ARTWORKS PERFORM MORE THAN A REPRESENTATION OF A HISTORICAL PAST, TO INSTEAD CONFRONT HISTORY AS WELL AS ITS PRODUCTION. REFLECTING UPON THESE ARTWORKS, THE THESIS DISCUSSES THE NATURE OF THE HISTORIOGRAPHICAL UNDERTAKING POSSIBLE WITHIN AESTHETICS IN AN INTER-DISCIPLINARY MANNER: AS READ THROUGH THEORIES OF HISTORY, ART HISTORY, PHILOSOPHY, AND AESTHETIC DISCOURSE.
