Description

Hu Yun’s practice is grounded in research, surveys, travels, oral histories, and archives. Since 2012, Hu has made several trips to China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Southeast Asia to retrace the footsteps of missionaries such as Matteo Ricci and St. Francis Xavier, exploring both the factual and the imaginary. In line with this research, Hu will be investigating Chinese cemeteries and graveyards in Singapore as spaces of historical encounters. Of particular interest are the symbolisms of epitaphs on early 20th century tombstones as a reflection of the political landscape in China. Hu will also retrace the immigration of Chinese artists from China to Singapore in the early 20th century through Mr Koh Nguang How’s Singapore Art Archive Project.
