Duration: approx. 50 minutes

Block 37 Malan Road, #01-01
During his five-month residency, Zachary Chan has been researching the religion that most influenced the early stages of his spiritual upbringing, Pentecostal Christianity. After resulting in the installation recently presented at Residencies OPEN (14-15 January 2023), this research continued to evolve organically and is now taking the shape of a performance. Staged in the artist’s Residencies Studio, this collaborative work-in-progress shines new meanings onto the installation itself lending voices, sounds, and visuals to personal narratives, historical anecdotes, religious texts, demonological doctrines, and spiritual mapping theories related to this specific religious denomination. The spoken part, recited by Zachary Chan, will be punctuated by sulukan—the mood setting songs of the gamelan tradition—performed by both the artist and Rosemainy Buang and it will accompanied by the kaleidoscopic visual sequences of Ricky Lee.
Free entry in order of arrival until full capacity.
