By Loo Zi Han

Reception: Thursday 6 December, 7:30pm

In 1993 Singaporean artist Josef Ng performed Brother Cane, a performance that triggered ten years of strict licensing and funding restrictions of performance art in Singapore.

On February 19,2012 Loo Zihan provided six accounts of Josef Ng's performance in a performance titled Cane at the Substation Theatre. These accounts included a 'live' re-enactment of Brother Cane, an eyewitness account from the court affidavit, video documentation of the 1993 performance, and excerpts from press clippings.

Archiving Cane is an installation that will consolidate and represent the various incarnations of Brother Cane along with the performance remains from these re-performances. Visitors to he exhibition will be invited to add to these remains by providing their ow account of Brother Cane over the duration of the exhibition. This exhibition aims to reconstruct the memory of Brother Cane in the collective public consciousness.
