In Dialogue with Amanda Heng and Jason Wee
Join us for a discussion between artist Amanda Heng, and artist, writer and curator Jason Wee on the occasion of STPI’s group exhibition The Lines Fall Where They May curated by Wee. The Lines Fall Where They May is on mark-making and the delicate, faint signs of nonhuman life and environments.

This session will take Heng’s residency at STPI as a starting point, where she collaborated with 12 individuals from STPI to create her eventual print works. In a manner that resonated deeply with her renowned oeuvre, the artist allowed for the stories and experiences of these individuals to take the centre stage, with a treasured object or heirloom as a catalyst for this sharing. The speakers will further touch on Heng’s use of conversations and dialogue as the material of her artistic practice, and on what it means to work with the intangible, where such material often end up not getting documented at all.
