The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Curator Kan Shuyi will offer a museological perspective towards looking at repositories as potential meaning-bearers. Throughout her artistic practice, Ulrike Ottinger has accumulated a large collection of objects and images, the latter including not only photographs taken by her, but also postcards, illustrations, iconographic documents, etc. The pictures, when released from the hoard to be assembled and recombined, become active objects that “perform” various appearances of realities. Does a collection — or more precisely a hoard of objects and images — create meaning for its bearer or other audiences? Hear from curator Kan Shuyi as she offers a museological perspective towards looking at repositories as potential meaning-bearers.

A public programme of Ulrike Ottinger: China. The Arts – The People: Photographs and Films from the 1980s and 1990s.
