[Performance Workshop] Jevon Chandra: Light Gets In
What do you wish to see on the horizon?
Join artist Jevon Chandra in a one-on-one workshop as he explores ideas of distance, sighting, and traversal. In this performance-workshop, the artist accompanies one participant at a time on a field trip to locate an “ideal" vantage point, from which participants can "see” a distant locale of their choosing. What might it take to realise this vision into being; and what may arise from this (futile) exercise?"
This event involves walking. Comfortable footwear is advised.
This event requires some preparation taking between 15 to 30 minutes, which should be completed no later than 3 days before the event.
The length of the activity is dependent on both the artist and the participant. As a gauge, past sessions have ranged between 1.5 hours to as long as 9 hours.
If you wish to participate but share concerns regarding access, please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com
Further details to be furnished upon registration.
About the Exhibition
An exploration of the entanglements between reality, representation, and discourse, facilitated by the moving image, ON/OFF/SCREEN situates the screen, the ubiquitous and contemporary mode of communication and transmission, as both a site of inquiry and departure.
Contemplating the porosity and possibilities of an expanded cinematic practice in contemporary image-making, this exhibition features works from artists whose inter-disciplinary practices blur the formal and conceptual boundaries between performance, new media, and the moving image.
The eight featured artists are Piyarat Piyapongwiwat, Salty Xi Jie Ng, Lynette Quek, ila, Ashley Hi, Huijun Lu, Farizi Noorfauzi, and Jevon Chandra.
ON/OFF/SCREEN is curated by the Moving Picture Experiment Group (MPEG), an experimental art and curatorial collective comprising Alfonse Chiu, Adar Ng, and Dave Lim.
