Lecture
Heman Chong: Ifs, Ands, or Buts 
Tuesday, 5. December, 7 PM, Aula

"This lecture begins with a work that I didn’t make (it was an accident) and ends with a performance involving sentences I didn’t write (other artists did). In between, I would like to discuss a number of things that has passed through my eyes, hands and mind that have become a substantial part of what most people consider a part of my work; novels, bookshops, libraries, trees, calendars, postcards, words, stories, situations, exhibitions, time, texts, magazines, conferences, memories, translations, rumours, relationships, resistance, speech, secrets, distributions, bridges. This discussion will take place via deconstructing 10-15 works that I have made since 2003."

Heman Chong is an artist whose work is located at the intersection between image, performance, situations and writing. He has recently produced a series of interconnected exhibitions located in Art Sonje Center (Never, A Dull Moment, Seoul, 2015), South London Gallery (An Arm, A Leg and Other Stories, London, 2015) and Rockbund Art Museum (Ifs, Ands, Or Buts, Shanghai, 2016). He is the co-director and founder (with Renée Staal) of ‘The Library of Unread Books’ which has been installed in NTU Center for Contemporary Art, Singapore, The Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD), Manila and is currently installed in Casco Projects, Utrecht. He is currently working on a novel ‘The Book of Drafts’ which will be published by Polyparenthesis in 2019.
