      What if Hitler were Jekyll and Hyde? History and fiction collide in Starring Hitler as Jekyll and Hyde.   Borrowing characters and themes from literary classic – Jekyll and Hyde, the history of Jewish holocaust is retold in a new tale about Jekyll, a young painter by day, who turns into Hitler by night. Hitler terrorises the populace, subjecting them to his will. To build up his country, the non-natives are murdered and disposed of by him to preserve the blood and lineage of his countrymen. Meanwhile, Jekyll the young painter rises in stature and wealth as his alter-ego coerces the population into building galleries and museums, and commissioning artworks to pay homage to himself. As the country enters the dark ages, a police inspector is tasked to uncover the true identity of Hitler and stop his killings. First staged in 2014 to critical acclaim, Starring Hitler as Jekyll and Hyde is a modern parable about the rise and return of fundamentalism and fanaticism in today’s world. Featuring a stellar cast, Chong Tze Chien’s explosive play bristles with hard hitting truths and resonance. Writer/Director: Chong Tze Chien Lighting designer: Lim Woan Wen Sound Artist & Music Composer: Darren Ng [...]

  • 08/04/16--03:23: Aurora – Zheng Yiqiang
  • Contemporary by Angela Li proudly presents ‘Aurora’, the first Hong Kong solo exhibition of Chinese artist Zheng Yiqiang. Zheng completed his postgraduate studies at the oil painting department of China’s Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2007. He currently lives and works in Beijing. In his eerily cryptic oil paintings, Zheng examines the spontaneous and often overlooked details in life, but his works are not just expressions of spontaneity; there is complex reasoning behind the structuring of his works, which rejects conventional expectations by rearranging elements on the canvases. Zheng’s paintings, the results of deep and intricate thoughts, are thought-provoking. They serve as a new and unrestricted platform which exceeds spatial limits, and in turn providing viewers with curious visual experiences from which they are encouraged to form their own interpretations. ‘Aurora’, the title of the exhibition and Zheng’s artwork series, is inspired by a tercet by Chinese poet Zang Kejia (臧克家): life is about seeking the light, but those who see light as mere light, plunge into an abyss of strife (人生永遠追逐著幻光,但誰把幻光看成幻光,誰便沉入了無底的苦海。). The symbolism in the poem corresponds to the philosophy advocated by Zheng in his paintings: we must detach ourselves from our sense of ‘self’, free our minds [...]

    Known for creating humourous characters and scenes, Cai Jun said of his latest series “The Three Kingdoms period was an incredibly important part of Chinese history, yet I suspect not that many people outside of China are fully aware of what happened.

After reading and watching so much material I was inspired to create something with a connection to this period“.

    Paintings by Tang Da Wu features 20 ink works completed between the period of 2005 and 2015 by one of Singapore’s most iconic contemporary figures, Tang Da Wu (b. 1943, Singapore – ). Best known for his thought-provoking performance and installation art, Tang’s work has achieved critical acclaim in the region. Throughout the evolvement of his practice in the last four decades, Tang has remained actively engaged in a wide array of media, including ink painting. As with his performance and installation art, Tang’s painting often examines concepts relating to traditions and mythologies; his ink expression drastically breaks away from the traditional confines of the medium, choosing instead to demonstrate and expand the subtleties of rice paper and ink aesthetics in a vibrant, poetic manner. Tang majored in Sculpture at the School of Fine Art, Birmingham Polytechnic in 1974 and advanced his study in Sculpture at Saint Martin’s School of Art from 1974-75. He received an MFA from Goldsmith’s College, University of London in 1985. He was among the seminal figures who co-founded the Artists’ Village in 1988 – a collective committed to promoting experimental art through the provision of studio and exhibition space.In 1978, Tang received the Visual Arts [...]
