Andrew Yang and Christa Donner are creating new multimedia works based on the theme of ‘gardens’ in Singapore, as a way to explore relationships between humans and their environment. Donner summarised their residency aims as starting from the rich history of “Chinese scholars’ gardens, community gardens, kitchen gardens and the landscaping of everyday life,” while Yang invites the public to consider relationships “of ecology to the body, of the psychological to the physical, the organic to the inorganic, and the complex relationships between what we call cultural, and what we call natural.” In the context of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, Yang believes that artists are “reimagining what kind of world we might live in. The coronavirus raises crucial questions about what it means to live together with, and live apart from, other people and other species alike.”
