Drawing on regional materials, traditions of craft and architecture, Rirkrit Tiravanija presents a site-specific installation in the form of a large-scale bamboo maze with a wooden tea house at its centre. It embraces his interest in collaborative art practice by inviting visitors to spend time in the space and participate in interactive programmes including tea ceremonies conducted by local and international tea masters.

This is the second showcase of the Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Commission series, which invites leading international artists to create site-specific installations that explore the definition of Southeast Asia as a region, place and concept. Each showcase runs from January to October, accompanied by a line-up of public programmes. The first commission was by Vietnamese-born Danish artist Danh Vo (2016–2017).

The Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Gallery is made possible through a gift by Far East Organization.
