State of Motion (Singapore Art Week 2016)

Description

Films are wondrous records of their place and time. More so for a place like Singapore than almost anywhere else in the world.

State of Motion
retraces these places with Singaporean artist and filmmaker, Toh Hun Ping through his extensive research on 20th century Singapore films and their filming locations. With a focus on a selection of classic Cathay-Keris films, audiences go on a trip to these film locations where an artwork responding to both the film and its site awaits them. Participants are encouraged to not just remember but to re-imagine the film and an ever-changing Singapore landscape.


Programme Outline

The starting point of State of Motion will feature a pop-up exhibition curated by the Singapore Film Locations Archive, focusing on the films of the Cathay-Keris Studio and the important landmarks related to this slice of history.

Tour participants will see a presentation of short excerpts from selected Cathay-Keris films, including iconic titles like Chinta Kaseh Sayang (My Darling Love, 1965), Korban Fitnah (Victim of Slander, 1959), Mat Tiga Suku (Mat Crazy, 1965), Che Mamat Parang Tumpol (Black Hand Gang, 1960) and Sumpah Pontianak (The Curse of Pontianak, 1958).

The tour will visit five filming locations ranging from the former kampongs in Siglap, to the old Outram Prison and the iconic Queen Elizabeth Walk. Each stop will feature a site-specific artwork, created by Singapore-based artists Kin Chui, Mark Thia, Hafiz Osman, Stephanie Jane Burt and Mike HJ Chang and curated by Kent Chan.
