As part of The Making of an Institution, Artist-in-Residence Chris Chong Chan Fui will introduce the public to the projects he is in the process of developing and share his approach to artistic research through a selection of past works. Fuelled by a deep-seated fascination for experimental film-making, Chong’s practice often explores the threshold between illusion and reality, documentary and fiction, questioning the conventional boundaries of representation.
The talk will take place in the artist’s studio, #01-05, Block 38 Malan Road
