On AiR with Marvin Tang

Description

In this instalment of “On AiR”, Marvin Tang shares with us his investigation into the structures of power and control, particularly towards historical narratives and the notion of collective identities. His research during his residency at NTU CCA Singapore is part of a body of work titled, “The Colony”, which started in 2018.

Tang chose to focus on Wardian cases for this residency, propelled by his interest in exploring the past and present roles of colonial botanical institutes. Here, the Wardian case is framed as a point of departure to excavate the social, economic, and environmental implications of planetary plant movements and the displacement of labour forces required to sustain booming plantation economies.
