AIR Dialogue: Sai (aka Chen Sai Hua Kuan)

1 September 2020 (Tue), 4:30 PM
At Via Zoom

Living and working in Singapore, Sai creates artwork that reflects his interest in the notion of play within daily life. His practice often challenges the habituated eye by deconstructing and transforming everyday objects, found materials and situations, so as to invite fresh interpretations of them.

Sai sees his art as the outcome of conditional activities determined and enabled by site and context, which goes beyond object-making and conventional studio practice.

During his residency, Sai is teaching Sculpting Movement and will develop a body of video art research that investigates the roots and development of Singapore Chinese opera as a way of making sense of the present identity of Southeast Asian Chinese.

The Artists-in-Residence programme is supported by the Tan Chin Tuan Chinese Culture & Civilisation Programme.
