Latest Happenings: World Premier of ''Ten Thousand Tigers'', by Multi-Disciplinary Ho Tzu Nyen

Earlier last week, The Artling headed over to Esplanade Theatre Studio to attend the world premiere debut of “Ten Thousand Tigers”, an epic one-hour-long-multi-sensory-installation-performance-art, conceived and directed by Singapore artist Ho Tzu Nyen. The production and cast are slated to travel all over the world over the next 12 months including Vienna, Sydney and Gwangju. The Artling left the studio with a jumpy heart and the roar of the tiger ringing in her ears…. Check out more below! By Darryl Wee Article taken from Blouin ArtInfo Contemporary artist Ho Tzu Nyen presents the world premiere of his new work, “Ten Thousand Tigers,” from April 17 through 19 at the Esplanade Theater Studio. Partially inspired by the ways in which tigers have constantly figured as an implied, almost apparitional presence in the history of Singapore and Malaya, “Ten Thousand Tigers” is a multi-disciplinary piece that fuses elements of theater, film, and live sound.  An astute student of intellectual, political, and art history, Ho previously published an essay in the now-defunct locally published magazine Forum on Contemporary Art and Society (FOCAS) that mused on how “cats — big and small, wild and domesticated, imagined and real — have been enigmatically woven into the history of Singapore. “Ten Thousand Tigers” traces how the tiger has loomed large in the cosmological beliefs of the Malayan world, up until its tragic last days when it was hunted almost to extinction by the British colonial masters, reincarnating itself in the most uncanny of places and contexts, such as Japanese soldiers invading the Malayan peninsula during World War II, or guerrillas from the Malayan Communist Party. Later this year, “Ten Thousand Tigers” will travel to a number of other international venues that co-commissioned it — Wiener Festwochen (Vienna Festival) and Carriageworks (Sydney), and Asian Culture Complex — Asian Arts Theater (Korea). “Ten Thousand Tigers” runs April 17 through 19 at the Esplanade Theater Studio. - See more at: https://sea.blouinartinfo.com/news/story/1025790/ho-tzu-nyens-ten-thousand-tigers-premieres-in-singapore#sthash.wf4zuSFM.dpuf Photo credit: Olivia Kwok   To read Mayo Martin’s review, click here: https://www.todayonline.com/blogs/forartssake/cat-power-ho-tzu-nyen-and-his-tiger-tales

Lu Xinjian makes us to think about each city we thought we knew in a completely novel way. Mastering new technology and media, Lu's solo exhibition at artshare.com showcased his groundbreaking series, 'City DNA' for which he uses Google Earth to retrieve a satellite view of a city or neighbourhood and simplifies the topography into basic geometric shapes on his computer. Born in 1977 in China, Lu currently lives and works in Shanghai, China. His works are widely exhibited in China and internationally.
