NTU CCA Residencies OPEN: James Jack, Stories of Khayalan Island, Part 1: KHAYALAN ISLAND, a reading

18 Mar 2015, Wed 7:30pm - 9:00pm
NTU CCA Singapore, Studios, Block 38 #01-05

Stories of Khayalan Island is an art project by James Jack which commenced with the rumour of an island that disappeared in the Singapore Harbour during the early 19th century. While in residence at NTU CCA Singapore, Jack’s search for Khayalan Island includes collective boat trips to nearby islands to look for its traces within the complexities of today.

This event will consist of voices from Khayalan Island based on the search in progress. The evening will be moderated by Seng Yu Jin (Senior Curator, National Gallery Singapore) and readers will include Steve Dixon (President, LASALLE College of the Arts), Chand Chandramohan (Artist-in-Residence, The Artists Village, Pulau Ubin) and artist James Jack.
