6 Apr 2016, Wed 7:30pm - 9:00pm
The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Compared to the abstract language and referential contexts behind Artist-in-Residence Haegue Yang’s installative sculptures, her video works reveal a directly narrative approach. Consisting of diaristic video essays of seemingly insignificant city scenes, Video Trilogy: Unfolding Places (2004), Restrained Courage (2004) and Squandering Negative Spaces (2006) contemplates upon sentiments of solitude and vulnerability. While the intimate yet incongruous voice-over monologue unfolds episodes of failed interactions and observations of everyday life, Video Trilogy evokes a deeply intimate sense of place, where the artist binds together the mundane and the poetic through the artists’ subtle interventions such as displaced origami and autonomous manifestations of light. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the artist.
