Title

Reading Group: To the Tombs led by artist Luca Lum

Description

Participants will address the death or afterlife of a person, idea, technology, place, or community, that is connected to Singapore, through a creative form that begins with texts from the Reading Room. Participants approach these texts as death poems and elegies directed towards their identified object, whose presence in current reality is arguably tenuous— an endangered form or an object that is yet to come, that may have shifted the directions of our worlds, but is currently diminished in its form—and situate this towards something else within the exhibition space. Instead of focusing on built solutions, the group will examine and concoct the temporalities and topologies of loss, dispossession, longing, memorialisation, and ruin. Participants should come prepared with a brief idea of the endangered or expired object/subject/event they are addressing.
