Residencies: OPEN as part of Art After Dark at Gillman Barracks

Description

25 Sep 2015, Fri 6:00pm - 10:00pm
Block 37 Malan Road, Studios


This edition of Residencies OPEN will highlight NTU CCA Singapore’s Artists-in-Residence who focus on performance in their practices. The performances will take place outside Block 37 Studios, accompanied by activities happening within this remote block. Performances will range from live sonic hypnosis from Yan Jun, a collaborative performance from anGie seah looking at the sensation of “butterflies in the stomach”, a ceremonious ritual of conviviality with Amanda Heng and a special installation and screening of work by Li Ran. These four artists mutually share an interest in performance as a visceral medium to experience contemporary art.

Amanda Heng | 6.00 – 10.00pm
Block 37 Malan Road, #01-03
Through her exchange of everyday rituals with various people in September, Amanda Heng’s (Singapore) presentation looks at the meditative, poetic and performative qualities in ceremonies, everyday life and public spaces. Visitors will be invited to experience the exchange of rituals through participation.

Li Ran | 6.00 – 10.00pm
Block 37 Malan Road, Studio #01-04
Li Ran (China) presents two works that blur everyday life and performance, including Beyond Geography (2012), which looks at the role of performing the “native” within a fabricated jungle environment.

Yan Jun | 8.00 – 9.00pm
Exterior of Block 37 Malan Road
Yan Jun’s (China) performances often incorporate improvisations and everyday objects. He will create a sonic device based on his experimentation of being situated in the jungle, drawing attention to the environs of Block 37, Gillman Barracks.

anGie seah | 9.00 – 10.00pm
Exterior of Block 37 Malan Road
anGie seah (Singapore) will present Part 1 of A Thousand Horses Running in my Head (2015), a mash up of bass droning, poetic gestures and erratic voice-works combined with everyday sounds.
