Song-Ming Ang

The practice of Song-Ming Ang (b. 1980, Singapore) revolves around music, a subject matter he approaches from the overlapping perspectives of an artist, fan, and amateur musician. Spanning from classical and experimental to indie and mainstream music, he engages with a variety of material and immaterial elements such as music posters and instruments, school songs and mixed-tapes which are reconfigured through simple gestures to push an idea to its logical conclusion. Working across a wide variety of formats, he often develops participatory processes whose outcome is unpredictable and generate knowledge in unexpected ways.

Song-Ming Ang lives and works between Berlin and Singapore. He has had solo exhibitions at Camden Arts Centre, London, United Kingdom (2015) and Spring Workshop, Hong Kong (2012) and has participated in numerous group exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art Singapore (2016); NUS Museum, Singapore (2015); Witte de With, Rotterdam, the Netherlands (2014) and Haus der Kulturen de Welt, Berlin, Germany (2011), amongst many others. He has been an artist-in-residence at the K├╝nstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Germany (2011-2012).
