Title

Residencies Insights: Dictation with Weixin Chong (Singapore)

Description

7 Nov 2015, Sat 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Studio #01-07, Block 38 Malan Road

During her residency, Singapore artist Weixin Chong is exploring perspectives and portrayals of tropicality in a Singaporean context, from projections of exoticism and escape to the post-colonial self-conscious gaze of the tropical being, to how the natural growth of wildlife represents ‘undevelopment’.

For her current project, Chong is calling for participants to take part in a dictation event within the Gillman Barracks “jungle”. Chong will read aloud a text in which participants will be asked to transcribe from her dictation. These texts will be translated by the artist into an artwork. After the dictation, guests are invited to a read in the artist’s studio.
