Artist Resource Platform: activate! II features Selene Yap, Programme Manager for Visual Arts at The Substation. Yap will engage with artist Susie Wong to foreground her artistic practice and position in the local art scene. Wong’s practice has been described as autobiographical, and the self-determined nature of her works calls into question contingencies of operating systems in the state of artistic production in Singapore – what are the implications for what is made visible and valued? In this session, Yap will converse with artist Loo Zihan on the nature of archives as cultural tools that enable/disable or include/exclude by means of collection and documentation – what are the traditional positions and normalising effects of the power of collection and display?
