Sookoon Ang, Weighs like mine, 45 min, 2015
Talk and screenings, introduction by Silke Schmickl, Lowave

While utilizing a wide array of media and artistic approaches, my work focuses on evocative reconsiderations of the everyday. Underpinning my work is existential anxiety and the desire to represent the fragile and ephemeral. My work is produced in response to the transient and imperfect nature of things, emotions and ideas.

Ho Tzu Nyen, Chimeras, 45 min, 2015
Talk and screenings, introduction by Kathryn Weir, Centre Pompidou

From his first work about the non-existent lion that Singapore was named after, to his most recent project about the annihilation of tigers during British colonial rule, Ho Tzu Nyen has been interested in tracking chimeras that haunt the margins of history, with his projects in theatre, television, cinema and audio-visual installations.
