As the latest development of her ongoing enquiry into plantation histories in Malaya during the 19th and 20th century, Priyageetha Diahas turned to game engine software as a way to dig deeper into the questions and narratives uncovered during her research. For this Residencies OPEN, visitors can encounter the ways in which Priyageetha is exploring and experimenting with new systems and modes of thinking. From research materials to design drafts,  her work-in-progress reflect two concurrent streams of research: the human and environmental exploitation inscribed in the history of Malayan plantations and the ethical implications of game engine software. Mirroring archival footage with a speculative ethno-futurist world, her work arises questions on: What does it mean to work with AI? How can an artist employ a game as a platform of representation? Can game engine software be used to return agency to the marginalised?

HILMI JOHANDI

Open Studio
Saturday, 20 August, 1:00 ­– 7:00 pm

For the past five months, Hilmi Johandi has transformed his studio into a sanctuary for alternative patterns of thought outside of the usual routines and rituals that define his practice. Visitors will step into a mind map of sprawling ideas, key words, and visual inspirations that come from old films, tourism postcards, and photographs depicting a long-gone Singapore. Next to this explorative mind map, this open studio session also shows how Hilmi’s experiments with form and modes of spectatorship have led him towards stop-motion video expanding his image-making process beyond painting.

FAZLEEN KARLAN

Open Studio
Saturday, 20 August, 1:00 ­– 7:00 pm
Block 37 Malan Road, #01-01

For this Residencies OPEN, the sediments of Fazleen Karlan’s experimentations with archaeological processes come alive in the studio. Expanding her inquiry into archaeology as a speculative framework and a mode of re-imagination, during the residency Fazleen has researched the appearance of archaeology in mainstream films and other media and she has conducted a number of workshops for the public to explore concepts of ‘artefact’ and ‘relic’. Her studio presentation will also feature the work-in-progress for Obat Batu(in Malay, literally, ‘medicinal rocks’), a collaborative video animation about traditional medicinal items. These medicinal objects and their uses, which are not archived as often as their western medical equivalents, are cast in a speculative narrative wherein native flora and fauna play a significant role.
