During his residency, Chun will pursue his exploration of the inconspicuous fixtures of the urban environment shifting from a detached approach to a more active engagement that involves connecting with the public agencies in charge of the design, production, and installation of such elements. He is also contemplating to create a performance piece which will lend voice to a range of common objects.

COUNTRY OF PRACTICE: Singapore
Singapore artist Chun Kaifeng deals with things that linger in the background of the built environment. His practice is premised upon a close observation of those everyday fixtures and ordinary elements that populate the contemporary urban landscape. Absorbed, reconfigured, and abstracted through a rigorous sculptural language, familiar items such as benches, railings, lightbox signs, and trash bins resurface in the gallery space as objects that, in the artist’s own words, possess a mysterious “sense of insularity”.
Chun Kai Feng (b. 1982) is an artist, curator, exhibition designer, and educator. He graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and received a Master from the Glasgow School of Art, United Kingdom. His works have been exhibited extensively in Singapore and have been included in group shows at Frac des Pays de la Loire, France and ifa-Galerien, Berlin, Germany (2015). He received the National Arts Council Young Artist Award in 2015 and has been Artist-in-Residence at Ruangrupa Art Lab, Jakarta, Indonesia and Ateliers Internationaux, Frac des Pays de la Loire, France.
