Heman Chong, A Short, Performing, Story
TRAVELERS: STEPPING INTO THE UNKNOWN HEMAN CHONG 21 JAN - 6 MAY 2018
THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF ART, OSAKA, JAPAN
This exhibition is held to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the National Museum of Art, Osaka. Through the works of more than 40 Japanese and foreign artists, the exhibition will shed light on various aspects of our society by examining things that have been imbued with time, history, and memory from a wide range of views.
Heman Chong will be presenting A Short, Performing, Story, a performance piece consisting of an interaction between an instructor and a group of individual participants, with a short story written by the artist for this exhibition as its core. Approximately 500 words in length, the text was written in English and specifically translated by Azusa Hashimoto, a curator working in this museum, for the Japanese audience. Participants are requested to not leave the room until they memorise the story by heart, which is taught verbally by the instructor who holds the text in his/her hands. The artist has promised that this story will never be published on paper or digitally; the content remains known only to the instructor and the participants. As they offer their time (it can take an average of three hours before they completely memorize the text) and energy to receive the gift of the story, a unique way of â€˜readingâ€™ it emerges each time the performance occurs.
