Residency Dates: July 1-7, 2013
Heman Chong (http://www.hemanchong.com/) is an artist, curator and writer. His art practice involves an investigation into the philosophies, reasons and methods of individuals and communities imagining the future. Charged with a conceptual drive, this research is then adapted into objects, images, installations, situations or texts. In 2006, he produced a writing workshop with Leif Magne Tangen at Project Arts Center in Dublin where they co-authored “PHILIP”, a science fiction novel, with Mark Aerial Waller, Cosmin Costinas, Rosemary Heather, Francis McKee, David Reinfurt and Steve Rushton. In 2013, he will be curating a year long program involving residencies, writing workshops, exhibitions and conferences, entitled “Moderation(s)”, that will occur in Witte de With in Rotterdam and Spring Workshop in Hong Kong.
