28 NOVEMBER - 21 DECEMBER
Tiong Ang presents ‘How To Act’ for his solo show at Lumen Travo Gallery. ‘How To Act’ does not refer to an instructive manual for aspiring play-actors, but aims to rethink the complexity of the artistic process itself and its temporal and spatial impulses. He tests the possibility of an enactment, or an acted play of himself by others, to be more precise: his artistic position, image or practice enacted by other, younger artists. The act of acting, by offering lucid pretensions, play behaviour, and masked performance is represented by a loose group of performers in a theatrical set sculpture in the exhibition space.
This work forms part of Tiong Ang’s commitment to collaborative projects exploring a multitude of artistic positions and subjectivities. Over the past few years he has produced films and installations that display a wide array of quasi-theatrical enactments, working with professional or amateur actors to link terms of global histories with personal and emotive narrations.
