Artist-in-Residence Public Lecture: Everything That Has a Point Makes a Circle

4 November 2020 , 7.30pm - 8.45pm

Online Zoom Webinar

Singaporean artist Sai (aka Chen Sai Hua Kuan) works in diverse media to create interactive sculptural and multimedia installation artworks that reflect 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.

Join us via Zoom for a live-streamed event where Sai will discuss his practice, the Sculpting Movement module at Yale-NUS, and his residency project: a video art research project that investigates the roots and development of Singapore Chinese opera as a way of making sense of the present identity of Southeast Asian Chinese.

This session will be moderated by Mr Tom White, Instructor for Humanities (Documentary, Photojournalism and Visual Communication).


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