Subject

Description

James Jack is concerned with rejuvenating fragile links that exist in a place, developing socially engaged artworks in connection with the people and land encountered there. At NTU CCA Singapore, he will work on the project Stories of Khayalan Island (2013- ) which commenced with rumours of an island that disappeared near Singapore. While in residence, he will search for evidence of Khayalan Island amidst the paradoxes of the rapidly changing harbour. Historical maps will be redrawn based on collective imaginations of space and sea vessels will be rebuilt to visit contingent islands at risk of vanishing. A search for this imaginary island in the social and ecological realities of today provides the basis for a book of stories as well as newly created artworks.
