This edition of Residencies: OPEN will highlight NTU CCA Singapore’s Artists-in-Residence who focus on performance in their practices. The performances will take place outside Block 37 Studios, accompanied by activities happening within this remote block. Performances will range from live sonic hypnosis from Yan Jun, a collaborative performance from anGie seah looking at the sensation of “butterflies in the stomach”, a ceremonious ritual of conviviality with Amanda Heng and a special installation and screening of work by Li Ran. These four artists mutually share an interest in performance as a visceral medium to experience contemporary art.
