CANVAS/S: Moving Images Exhibition with Amanda Tan (Empyreal)

CANVAS/S invites you on an eye-opening exploration of the artists’ world. Each installation in this series is proudly helmed by a local artist or collective, represented by their signature medium. Discover the techniques and inspiration behind each unique art piece at the exhibition, or take a deeper dive with the various programmes run by the artists themselves. We live in a visual world, a world dominated by technologies that have given us the most seemingly objective picture of the universe we have ever known; we are surrounded by images and representations. Yet, our inundation and even saturation by images has also paradoxically made it difficult for us to make sense of reality in a coherent fashion. At the same time, the media that the average audience consumes is limited by what is readily and popularly available. Fortunately, both traditional video art and post-modern filmmaking have constantly explored ways to break out of preconceived notions of what film is, and what it means to the audience.

In this hour-long talk, these three artists of their own right will share their experiences and insights in the creation of films, and their methods in pushing the boundaries of film to create an impactful experience for an audience so steeped in this already saturated visual world.
