[TOUR] Curator Tour of 47 Days Sound-less (SgSL provided) Sam

Time: 3.30PM–4PM

Venue: Level 1, The Engine Room


Go on a tour of 47 Days Sound-less with SAM curator Syaheedah Iskandar.

47 Days, Sound-less by Vietnamese artist Nguyễn Trinh Thi is a film that explores the relationships between sound and silence, vision, language, colours and their absence. Nguyễn identifies “peripheries”—including natural landscapes used as backdrops, uncredited characters and soundtracks from American and Vietnamese movies—that reveal more-than-human perspectives. Offering new ways of looking and listening, 47 Days, Sound-less invites audiences to reflect on the inextricable relationship between a place and its inhabitants.

Singapore Sign Language (SgSL) interpretation will be provided.

[TOUR]  Curator Tour of Ho Tzu Nyen: Time & the Tiger (SgSL provided) Sam

Time: 4PM–5PM

Venue: Level 1, Gallery 1 & 2


Join SAM curator Selene Yap as she gives you an overview of Ho Tzu Nyen: Time & the Tiger.

Ho Tzu Nyen: Time & the Tiger is a mid-career survey exhibition of the artist’s practice that spans two decades worth of paintings, films, theatrical performances, and video installations. Ho’s works often draw from historical events, documentary footage, art history, music videos and mythical stories to investigate the construction of history, the narrative of myths, and the plurality of identities. The exhibition also features a new commission that reflects on the embodied and heterogeneous experiences of time.
