NEW WAVES | JERROLD CHONG: HEADLESS DIMENSIONS: SKEWERED RELATIONS WITH TIME AND SPACE

August 30, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Event Navigation

30 August, WED

Jerrold Chong • Headless Dimensions: Skewered Relations with Time and Space
In dialogue with Mike HJ Chang
Jerrold Chong’s practice in stop-motion animation explores the proximity between reality and imagination as it ponders upon the philosophical puzzles that lay within. Like solving rubik’s cube, he twists our perceptions of humanity with an elegance that bridges the two dimensions, in its bid to illuminate the emotional fractures of beings searching for reconciliation.

Jerrold will be joined by sculptor Mike HJ Chang in a dialogue that will delve into the visceral nature of their craft to explore the intersections between both mediums. As they walk us through their processes and utilisations of abstraction and metaphor to deconstruct and express subjective human experiences, they uncover uncanny relationships with time and space, and a curious approach to heads as the central axis of our existences.
