Artist's Talk of The Hong Lim Series: Line and Fragments - Recent Works of Jon Chan

Artist's Talk: Oct 1, 2022, 3-4pm
Exhibition Private Preview: Sep 17, 2022, 12-5pm
(By Invitation Only. Artist Will Be Present)
Exhibition Opens to Public: Sep 19 - Oct 1, 2022
The Hong Lim Series: Line and Fragments marks a new and ongoing series that Chan has embarked on as he surveys the connection, or rather disconnection, between the physical manifestation of the site and the symbolic presence of the person the park is named after. Come celebrate the artist’s solo exhibition and join Chan as he elaborates on his inspirations, conceptualisation and artistic process in this artist's talk.
The artist’s talk will be a 45min presentation by Chan, followed by a 15min Q&A discussion; held in conjunction with his solo exhibition. During the talk, audiences will be presented with current ideas surrounding the subject of painting, such as 'The Quasi-Subject' as adopted by the art critic Isabelle Graw (publisher of contemporary German art journal, ‘Texte zur Kunst’, and professor of art history and art theory at Hochschule für Bildende Künste–Städelschule). Chan will then focus on explaining how these ideas are conveyed through his works.
This exhibition brings forth a two-fold exploration as Chan manoeuvres through Hong Lim Park, a site full of storytelling and political narratives and his ancestral relations with Cheang Hong Lim. Driving from an alienated perspective, Chan also integrates notions of time as a medium often realised through fragmented imageries.
Jon Chan Weiwen (b. 1982, Singapore) graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (First Class Honours) in 2007, and a Masters of Fine Arts in 2008, from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore. Chan is the winner of the Winston Oh Travel Award for the years 2003 and 2007. He was also awarded the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry Arts award in 2007. Chan has participated extensively in numerous group exhibitions since 2002 and has held various solo exhibitions in Singapore.
