John Low

Description

Throughout the residency, John Low is pursuing an interdisciplinary investigation on the expanding field of contemporary Chinese ink practices in the context of Singapore and Southeast Asia. Extending beyond the technical specificity of the medium, his interests encompass the relationship between place and identity, the patterns of knowledge transmission, and the processes through which a shared diasporic culture becomes localised. Fuelled by conversations with local scholars, practioners, and other relevant interlocutors, this research also tackles the literature on the subject as the artist scrutinises how language, specifically English and Mandarin, affects the production of knowledge and the circulation of discourse. The studio also provides Low with a space to experiment with different spatial configurations of his own works with Chinese ink. During the second part of the residency, he plans to focus on the production of a new floor piece.
